Yesterday I had some reservations about seeing some friends I hadn’t seen in a while. We sat outside; two of us were fully vaccinated, I have an official half-week to go, and the forth has had one shot. We were careful.
And we had fun.
Today I feel good in a way that is entirely new. I was unsure about picking up old threads, about venturing fully back into a world that has become, seemingly overnight, so dangerous. And yet I did.
And that’s the thing.
Sometimes if you don’t face it, if you don’t take it on, if you don’t try it, it looms larger and larger and larger until you can no longer see beyond it, you can no longer even contemplate doing it. With this pandemic, we absolutely run that risk.
If it’s safe, and ONLY if it’s safe, do it. If it’s safe, and ONLY if it’s safe, dip a toe in the outside world again.
It just may be a kind of relief you didn’t even know you needed.
Have a great Wednesday.
