My word for 2020 is ENOUGH.
It’s such a great word and realization. And it’s so versatile!
- I can use it while standing tall, with clenched fists and lots of exclamation points. “Enough of THAT!!!”
- I can use it when I remember to put Fear in the back seat. So I can get on with Life. “Enough, already.”
- I can use it when no matter how I try, things just don’t turn out as I planned or wanted. So I can allow a glimmer of grace to creep-in and flip my compassion switch ON. “:: deep sigh:: Enough.”
- I can also use it when God/The Universe/and Everything Good presents one of those gobsmacking moments of awe and love. “THIS is enough.”
I’m not a mask-hole, on either extreme. Like everyone else though, I have strong opinions about when, where, and with whom I’ll wear a mask.
I don’t wear a mask when I’m alone, with someone who’s in my immediate circle/pod, or when I feel I’m with others, in a controlled, safe distance.
I do wear a mask when I’m within six-feet of people, who aren’t in my immediate circle/pod. Basically, I wear a mask when I’m in the presence of people I don’t want to infect.
That’s how I see it. I’m trying approach COVID from a place of compassion rather than fear. I wear a mask for you. And for me, that’s enough.
How have you witnessed or experienced enough, lately?
