“We’re all just walking each other home.” – Ram Dass
This past year has been the longest and probably the most difficult that any of us has ever experienced.
We have experienced fears and losses which have had each of us living in a heightened state of anxiety and feeling the primal scent of death closer than we ever thought we would.
We have seen true heroes helping people day after day out of the goodness of their wonderful hearts, and we have seen true villains tearing communities apart.
We have been forced to live our lives in new ways, sometimes liberating us to develop into who we truly wished to be, while other times feeling suffocated and stifled.
We have all lived these paradoxes daily, not always having the mental and emotional support we needed, while still being a parent or a child or a spouse or a sibling or a neighbor or a friend of someone who needed our support.
No matter how we were able to manage handling our lives, our emotions and our actions during this entire marathon we have run, whether we feel proud of ourselves or we wish we had been able to do better… we’re all looking at a finish line which seems to be inching closer to us as vaccines roll out to a world in need of help and a solution to be able to live life “normally” again.
We’re all weary, we’re all struggling to keep our positivity and energies up.
We want to emerge from the foxholes we’ve hunkered down in and just get back to freely walking on beaches.
I have spent this past year writing as positively and as encouragingly as I possibly could, both here on my blog and on other’s blogs. I wrote for myself and I wrote for others.
I find my own mind has grown weary, my blog posts lately have had longer and longer gaps between posts, when previously I was setting a daily rhythm of writing.
I have been honoring my weariness by not pushing too hard, by not trying to force the writing, for I understand that the ability to write in an encouraging and supportive way for others needs to come from a feeling of fullness, not of weariness.
The best thing for me, and is the same for each of us when we feel depleted, is to be gentle with ourselves, to regroup and find healthy ways to recharge the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual batteries.
I’ve spent more time lately going for walks, relaxing, spending time with my family. I choose not to get down on myself for not writing, instead I feel very comfortable with honoring what I’m going through.
I recognize it’s a sort of battle weariness, of feeling tired from doing my best to fight the good fight, of having kept myself positive and upbeat through the long year while also doing my best to help others by encouraging and being as supportive as I knew how.
Right now, we’re all just walking each other home, taking the steps we need to in order to restore our lives back to normalcy and order.
Sending each of you big love and many wonderful blessings to keep going, to keep doing what you need to in order to get your life, your families and communities back on track!
