This World Now

I haven’t been here for a long time.

Today is a work from home day, and I suddenly found the time and inspiration to come back to this space. Or maybe something in my body just told me that I really needed to. I really need this outlet today.

It feels so surreal, this world we are living in now.

I feel small, powerless, and so not in control.

I see everyone encouraging each other on social media and posting things about taking care of our physical and mental health. And reminding each other not to get swept up in the paranoia and anxiety of the times.

Which just makes me feel more anxious, really.

I have turned off notifications for most apps on my phone.

I am working on allowing all feelings, which can get really uncomfortable.

On the brighter side, I am enjoying the slowed down pace of life, the emphasis on meaningful connection, and the time we have to reflect on what truly matters.

I don’t think the worst is over.

I hope for strength and equanimity.
