Expressing Holiday stress
We used the time to talk about how we’re feeling right now, extending on Lumbergh’s CoT yesterday.
Lots of topics. Hard times with kids, death/illness and consumerism. We acknowledged that we’re still adapting to a covid world and all of us are going through challenging times in one way are another. We aim to let emotions flow through us and find a balance with our relationship with them – not suppressing, running away from them or fighting with them.
We also talked about happiness not being a destination. We think we’ll be happy when some criteria is met – kids stop fighting, covid eases up, when injuries heal…but if we look hard enough happiness is a state of mind. It’s here now like a blue sky behind dark clouds.
Rock on, Slash!
