There are days when I wish that life was a bit more like Wheel of Fortune. If your spin landed on global pandemic, it couldn’t also land on fire, cancer, racism, bankruptcy, … And we’d just take hurricane season off the board altogether.
Life is fraught. This ain’t Heaven, it’s Earth. And we are all vulnerable creatures on a common journey. Here just for a minute. Making meaning as we go. Together.
Minimize expectations. Practice gratitude. For the small things. Especially for the small things. Be tender. Try to behave yourself today.
As usual, I wrote this for me and maybe for you too.
PS: How other people navigate this hot mess is none of your business. Really, you’ve got your hands full managing and improving your own damn self. (Definitely wrote this for ALL of us.)
