This is just to connect and create a space where we can share notes on this collective journey. It’s an uncertain time, and rich with potential. It’s a transformative time. We can emerge from this stronger than we were before.
Let’s start small, though. Let’s start with what we know.
Here are some things I know for sure:
I miss all of you! I have taken some time to do my own grieving, and I know there will be more in the coming days. If you need support with your grieving process, please reach out. I can help. We are in a hard and scary time, and I know how to make hard things easier and scary things friendlier.
Rituals are also nourishing, and a deeply ingrained tool to help us move through anxiety. Making tea has been one of my favorite daily rituals lately. This article explains some of the science behind the practice. If you want to talk about developing rituals that will support you, I’m here for that.
And here are some actions I’m taking despite a lack of perfect clarity:
In line with the CDC’s recommendations, I’m wearing a fabric mask whenever I am in situations where people might be closer than six feet away. Here is an article with links to local mask makers.
I’ve been more active on social media than ever in my life. There are some interesting conversations there, and I’d love to include you! I’m on Twitter @embodymeaning and Instagram @ricegrainmoxa. And, occasionally, K.M. Campbell Wellness on Facebook.
I will also probably start sending more of these newsletters, too.
Let’s stay connected. We are a community committed to thriving, and exploring. Let’s keep moving forward together.
