Yesterday I woke up with my body feeling refreshed after a good night’s sleep but, emotionally and spiritually, I was exhausted. That made for a hard day in which I could feel the stress. As the day progressed I felt better and better. Looking back I think that having people to talk to helped. I also recognized that one of my roles in this age of protest, is to help others who are feeling exhausted…by providing a listening ear, encouraging and modeling good self care, praying, and more…I’m still figuring this out.
Today I’m personally thankful for: meeting (and having the opportunity to share my struggles) with colleagues yesterday, the dedication of our El Centrito board members, last night’s gentle rain.
