Don't mind me, just repeating my Word of the Year. I will admit I have been avoiding news. I just can't take it. I don't feel like I have enough power to make change (dangerous if we all believe this, I know) and the negatives of feeling horrified every time I read another piece of news currently outweigh the benefits of being 'informed'. I do not want to keep my head in the sand for the long haul, but . . . I am tempted.
There is a Women's March in Miami tomorrow (one of many locations, of course) but I don't feel comfortable bringing the kids, so I am not going to go. Our JCC had a bomb threat this week. Cows are eating skittles. I just . . . can't take anymore.
I will however make a donation at the end of this month to causes that I support.
We have a busy weekend. I am going to try to breathe, enjoy family, and remain in the moment. Because really that's all we can count on. Especially now.
