Using Social Distance To Come Together
Things are not easy and I know there are so many nuances and complications to these suddenly new lives we’re all leading. That being said, for those of you who can, I wanted to gather together ways to look for the good and find bright moments in this dark time. A lot is not in our control, so it can be empowering to take control of the things that we can in a way that brings peace and joy to ourselves and our loved ones.
Something else I’ve been thinking about is how it might be helpful to think about specific roles you want to take on during this time. Are you the morale booster? The organizer? The researcher? The rock? We can’t do it all, so let’s think about ways that we can use our strengths to buoy each other up.
My inner teacher and my inner child are totally at work here. There’s a lot I can’t do, but I do love me some imagination and hyping up my people. These are my list versions of those skills (? ha) and I’m hoping it might makes things a little easier for you in some way.
There’s obviously a fine line between being overwhelmed by the dark and blinded by the light, but let’s just keep offering up whatever grace we can and doing our best as each moment comes. I’m not trying to ignoring what’s going on with these lists, but I do hope something on here offers a little bit of happiness.
I’d love for you to add to these lists, whether it be games you love or shows we should all try out or a hobby you’re planning on trying out.
