Feeling kinda beat up, exhausted, and emptied out. The adjectives attached to (Hurricane) Ida were quite negative and unpleasant to hear/read/see. Verbal abuse from every quarter with no regard to my feelings.
As a facilitator for mind/body experiences it’s been a fruitful time to practice what I preach. I watched myself talk back to the newscasters and explain why it could be a good thing to be: relentless, forceful, and rapidly growing. I tried not to take anything personally….nor, to swell with any pride about my strength, persistence, determination.
The story continues, and will for a while. I think Ida will go in the history books for reasons we haven’t even realized yet.
As for me, my lunar return is in a few hours so the best self-care I can think of right now is a nap. There’s a long to-do list waiting at the next new cycle.
