1. Truth: This post is actually supposed to get published on Tuesdays. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to write one that early in the week. I feel like this tells you everything you need to know about how things are behind the scenes.
2. Truth: I’m giving one thing up for the next week. I’m going to stop trying to figure things out, stop trying to fix anything. For the seven days, it’s not my responsibility. I have no idea if I’ll really be able to, or what it will feel like, but in regards to this one thing, I give up.
3. Truth: I’m so tired. It’s like that quote from Mandeq Ahmed, “There are two types of tired, I suppose. One is a dire need of sleep, the other is a dire need of peace.” I’m both kinds. The stress of the upcoming election is exhausting and the change in the light doesn’t help one bit. “I want to sleep for a thousand years, then wake up in some other world where failure is part of the music, and seen to make it more beautiful.”
One wish: May we be gentle with ourselves, slow down and rest as necessary, find ease in our lives and peace in our hearts.
