It doesn’t mean one should be passive or not care. Do your best and let it go.
4 days to Election Day. Covid is rising (again). Civil Rights protests are simmering. Lots of stressors out there, but keep your nose to the grindstone. Regulate for positive input and positive output will follow. I’m watching comedies, listening to mellow music (Jack Johnson, Johnny Nash, Alexi Murdoch) and taking in affirming podcasts (Marie Forleo is a great one)!
There is a mockingbird that likes to perch outside my bedroom door each morning and squawk mightily. This, despite that it’s 6 am and, due to the pandemic, I can sleep in. This bird does not care.
I noticed that on some mornings, I am grateful and happy to hear the bird.
Other mornings, I am annoyed and flirt with the idea of shooing it away.
Same bird. Same noise. Same time.
