I've been sort of in a "global" place in my head lately, if that makes any sense at all. I think it's based on all that's going on around the world. All the rumbling, destruction in many forms, looming dread, so much "crisis" talk.
For nearly 4 years now I have not watched the news or read the newspaper. I decided to just stop. Too much stress; too many crises, too many things going on that I can't control or do anything about to help. All I can do is feel sad or sorry or heartbroken.
It's not that I don't hear the news-it's pervasive-you can not avoid it. It's not that I don't care; I do. I guess it was a need to step away from the hype, the news that seems like little sound bites and info-tainment, a need to just slow down, breathe, and do what I can where I am.
So thinking globally about all that's going on, and just trying to stay calm. That's what's going on in my today. I hope yours is calm, peaceful, and stress free....and I wish that too for all those places in the world that need it most.
