*Quick note – I always have to check the spelling of the word ‘rhythm. It never looks right to me.
I have still not found my rhythm. I was a dummy and thought the stress of the global situation would not touch me. I am productive and efficient, but being those things during a global crisis (coronavirus) and during the outing of the social injustice that has been plaguing this country for years (BLM; LGBTQ+) doesn’t make a person immune.
I cannot go back to same rhythm. The rhythm I had before. I have to find a new one.
In my journal this morning, I made a list (this is where my brother will laugh uncontrollably as we are list makers, and every day is but an opportunity for a better, more exciting list). This list contained only two items.
- Workout every other day.
- Write one piece per week.
These are my only goals right now. I had a list of daily tasks that you wouldn’t believe before I was hit with the same anxiety, depression, rage, and stress you are feeling.
I still have a long list of projects and goals, but right now, I need to focus on getting back to me like I’m sure you do as well.
I was off my game for a while. It is time to get back on, and I encourage you to do the same by taking baby-steps while not forgetting the causes you support, your major goals in life, and your health.
I wish you the best of luck, and I will be checking in on Instagram from time to time, but not as often as before (hellothisisbarbara).
