I don’t have the heart for this today. The world feels like it has plunged headlong into chaos. My brain is overloaded with devastating images of unprecedented disasters close to home and across the globe. And then there is the violence erupting with horrific intensity.
I feel helpless and scared.
I want to curl up in a ball and pull the covers over my head. I want to scream and cry. Instead, I will work to steady myself. I will close my eyes and breathe until the fist around my heart loosens its grip. I will find my center and move from that place of groundedness.
Breathe in. Breathe out. In this very moment, that is my only job.
