Journaling My Way Through Social Distancing

Hi friend.

How are you?  

I’m on day 2 of “social distancing” and my head is spinning.  I’m navigating a new telework situation, a crashing stock market that directly impacts my job (therefore family and income) and like everyone, trying to figure out what the heck is happening to our world.

After my divorce 6 years ago I started journaling.  It was a great way to express to myself how I was feeling and handling a difficult situation.  I still do it time to time-mostly during an emotionally difficult time but also when things are going well.  

There is no question that we are in an incredibly difficult time.  I know I’m not alone in feeling scared, anxious and daily trying to find a silver lining.  So today, I started journaling again.

Journaling my way through Social Distancing

These are unprecedented times for us.  At this point, no one knows what the future holds for our families, the economy, our health…anything.

One day.. I want my children to have something to look back on in the words of their mom.  

One day…hopefully many years from now when I have grandchildren of my own, I hope they look back at my writing (and the writing of their parents) to see how we all persevered as a family and society.  

I hope you all stay healthy and check in on one another.  Its ok to need each other right now.
