not burning out

 


none of us seem to be sleeping. 


some of us are taking social  media breaks. 


some of us are doubling up on our social media (to feel connected). 


I'm guessing I'm not the only one who indulged in a little bit of retail therapy this week. 


(I got myself a 'knook' kit. Hand crafts help with my anxiety and I have a really large yarn stash to plow through.)


fiction? I guess lots of you are reading 1984. me, I started a series about the napoleonic wars, but with dragons. (because dragons.) I also have game of thrones on audiobook, because my boss came through faster than I expected. 


dragons. 


yes, dragons could win against fascism. roast 'em alive. 


I'm trying to move more. dance. yoga. walk. 


I'm taking more baths. 


(fear sweat is a thing.)


we're writing. we're arting. we're connecting. we're trying the best we can to take care of ourselves (and those around us.)


we're in for the long haul. 


don't let yourself burn out. don't let your friends burn out. 


breathe in. 


breathe out. 


tomorrow is a new day. 


winter is here, but spring will rise.
