The season finale of “2020” is going to be LIT!!
This has been the wildest of my nearly 50 year existence. Australia was on fire. Kobe died. A freaking pandemic. The west coast is burning. Ten US named storms (with almost two months left in hurricane season). Worldwide protests. A rogue president. Bounties on the heads of American soldiers. These are all events with a mass effect- stuff felt all over the nation and the world.
Personally, I was almost evicted. “May” have had Covid-19 (before testing was widely available in the States). Lost at least 10 family members and friends since April. Traumatized from watching the deaths of Black men at the hands of the police. Can’t get my anxiety and blood pressure meds refilled because I’m POOR. EVERYTHING is triggering- simple things- like social media notifications literally- OVERWHELM me. Last week, I had an allergic reaction to something- I’m still not sure what.
But, guess what?
You and I? We’re still here! We all could compose a list of just how crazy this year has been- yet, we’re still striving and surviving. There’s less than 90 days left in 2020, we just have to hold on. Things have got to get better.
This isn’t just a pep talk for me. If you are anxious, depressed, sick, tired, sick and tired, or all of the above -just take a breath. First, know you aren’t alone. Second, it’s always darkest before the dawn. Dawn is coming.
This has been such a roller coaster. Looking forward to the ups is truly how I am surviving the downs. We got this. Everything that we have overcome the first 9 months of this year has prepared us for this moment. So, start a countdown. We’re less than three months away from a new year and clean slate. Stay the course!
I’m not sure who needed this- God knows I did! I hope my ramblings are helping someone. ((Here’s a hug to go with them)).
Now let’s get out there and SLAY the final quarter!
Wash your hands.
Wear a mask.
Stop the spread-
and Stay out of the shadows!
