Last night was tough. I think those of us who caught part or all of it were a little shocked. We had opinions about it and maybe even a chance to voice these opinions.
Then we went to bed.
Then some of us woke up in a world of haze and danger to our lungs. The fact that it is familiar might actually make it feel worse rather than better.
All this to say: past the opinions, past the drama, I think something deep might be affecting us this morning, and I want to talk about it for a second.
You know, we may not be used to watching three powerful men talk over each other and say mean things to each other and produce nothing - in an official, controlled environment.
We may see this on the streets of Seattle, sometimes or a basketball court, maybe.
This was different.
And in its difference, I think it might have really affected us. I think we might feel a dose of extra something, today. Might be anger. Might be despair. Might be shame. Might be something else or it might be all of it.
I know I feel it, and no, the smoke is not helping.
So I’m thinking that today is a good day for Extreme Self Care, however that looks for you. Extreme Kindness to the ones we may encounter today, also.
We may have reached a different level of shook up, today. And this calls for an antidote.
AND maybe I’m fully projecting and just talking about myself, here. But just in case, I wanted to bring it up.
