I wake up wrapped in a hidden grief. A grief so big I’m grateful it’s hidden. The personal losses and changes, along with the national and global might take lifetimes to process and who even knows what is left over from other lives. It truly does seem to be too much and yet, here we are, here I am, here is Life- an undeniable and indestructible force.

It’s easy to get sucked into the terribleness of it all, but I have to remind myself daily that I don’t have to live all the trauma of the world. It’s okay to observe, empathize, but also find and seek out joy to balance it. Without actively seeking joy, I’m lost in it for good.
