We have always been tired.
We have all been doing as much as we could for as long as we could… and too often running at full speed to do it as fast as we could.
Then covid arrived.
Covid didn’t just add “one more thing”… it dumped a train-wreck of change and fear and loss onto already overloaded systems.
Sadly, as soon as the lockdowns were done many folks scrambled to jump back to the old routines of doing too much with too little… and all around us we are seeing the fallout from that. Frayed tempers, rudeness and meltdowns. We are all stretched beyond our limits.
This holiday season, please be gentle with yourself.
Pare down the non-essential and do the things that you love with the people you love … and whenever possible, rest.
