My sensitivity is up. I’m craving simplicity and peace. Early morning walks are soothing me. Mugs of hot chocolate or tea with honey sit on my desk while the scent of a cedar candle surrounds me. I think, “what do you need right now?” adding those things in, subtracting the unnecessary, the things that feel heavy and purposeless.
I posted this to Facebook last night:
There are some really good things here – updates from people I love, adorable animal videos and interesting articles to read – but I’m feeling a tad sensitive to the anger, accusations and upheaval over left/right, democrats/republicans, abortions/right-to-life, refugees/terrorists, gun violence/control, on and on. I’m sending everyone peace and I’m going to peace out from here for a few days to go hear updates from people I love in person, hug my adorable dog and read paper books xo
It feels right to take some time away. Interestingly, I already feel a weight lifted, and an urge to write more here. Just sending out a quick note before diving back into work. Hope you’re finding some peace today as well. Have a good one xo
