I know everyone is going through something during the pandemic, emotional, financial, spiritual and/or physical. For me it’s emotional and physical. There are so many things going on with me physically. Aging changes, strains and pains and a chipped front tooth I’ve had for a while. I can’t move like I used to. I’m working on getting my strength back. Lastly but most importantly I could have died last week. Stupid mistake but I’m alive. I’m not going to go into detail because it’s embarrassing and distressing. It was completely preventable and unexpected, but I’m alive and recovering from my injuries and losses. Today I had a good cry. Tonight I journaled my frustration and gratitude list. Wrestled with how much of this to share or whether to share at all. But when I saw Jamie post I decided to post. He asked if anybody here is going through stuff this year. I think most of us are in a lot of ways. It just looks different for each person. I haven’t written on my blog in a really long time just because I’m trying to stay above water. What the heck, I might post this and an article I found. A good cry and a gratitude list is a good combination. The therapist in me says incongruent feelings are valid and reasonable. May this post comfort those who need it. I’m reaching out so that I too do not feel so alone. I don’t know what things will look like for my future but I’m hoping for the best.
