My friend, Billy, sent me this picture yesterday and I had to laugh a bit because it’s just what I needed to hear! And he’s right, I always do figure it out…eventually.I can’t help but think that we all are trying to figure it out. The world that we thought would have calmed down by now is still somewhat chaotic. That virus seems to be everywhere, causing turmoil wherever it goes. Businesses can’t get help and customers have no patience for wait times. The shelves at the food store haven’t been restocked in weeks. Mask mandates are cropping up again all over. It’s no wonder that we’re feeling anxious or stressed. It’s no wonder that we’re trying to figure it out. And it’s no wonder that we’re trying to “figure out” what we’re actually trying to figure out.
All we can do is keep the faith, stay positive and be there for one another.
After all, as I’ve always said to my children, “It won’t be like this forever, just for today.”
At least I’d like to believe that.
Don’t worry, my loves, we’re in this together and eventually we will all “figure it out!”
The holidays are fast approaching and that “good ‘ol anxiety” we sometimes feel is taking advantage of us and rearing its ugly head! So many people have anxiety at this time of year and this year it seems to be worse. We feel cut off from friends and family and isolated from having a social life that we’ve grown accustomed to.
But this too shall pass.
Be kind to yourself and others.
Be gentle and forgiving with yourself and others.
And remember that this holiday season will soon become a memory to be shared next year when you’re surrounded by family, friends and loved ones.
We’re all in this together even though we have to do it apart.
