Well, my attempt at a 30-day digital detox didn’t last for than a moment; I’m at high risk concerning the virus and I couldn’t step away from the news and how things are going worldwide and here in NM. This is me (not literally) reading Twitter and the news daily:
Add to that the loss of income, and issues with social distancing, and I’ve been really, really stressed. I keep wanting to offer any and every one distance sessions, but people seem to feel that others deserve it more than they, or that it’s only for serious issues. And frankly, it feels wrong to charge for the sessions knowing a huge, huge portion of people are in the same check-to-check life, or are now without an income, too. It’s a bit of a Catch-22, ya know?
There’s that curse, “May you live in interesting times”, and boy, are we ever. All we can do is support, encourage, and listen to each other (from a distance). One of my favorite Firefly quotes is this:
Tracey: “When you can’t run, you crawl. And when you can’t crawl, when you can’t do that … “
Zoe: ” … you find someone to carry you.”
Let’s carry each other in whatever way we can.
With hope and love,
