This week I’ve been feeling rather unsettled. There is a shift in the air once more, and while it is all welcome, it requires an internal shift and those are hard.
As more and more vaccines roll out, I feel the anxiety rising in and around me once more. We have entered into another in-between period with this virus. Many of the most vulnerable folks are now safer and older relatives are itching to be reunited with our little ones. Teachers have been bumped up the list so that they might safely return to school, giving our children back a sense of normalcy that they so need. But all of this newness comes with the questions of last spring; how do we stay healthy and stay safe? What feels right for us, in this moment, right now?
If you’re feeling this uncertainty about the next many months, and beyond, know that you are not alone.
May you stay healthy and well, for your little ones, of course, but most of all for yourself.
