Ice Ice Baby

This past week has been a little crazy.

Monday through Wednesday were beautiful weather then Thursday we had an ice storm, which seems to be becoming the weather of choice for Feb. Because of that we lost power for almost 24 hours.

I had a blog idea in the midst of that but … there was just a lot of other stuff going on.

I think it may have been about resilience and fatigue and how much staying strong (or even just staying upright) during these last few years has had a toll.

I come from a traumatic background and know how hard it can be to exist in survival mode for any length of time. Even if we may not realize it, most of us have probably been in survival mode for a while. It looks different for everyone but we all definitely feel the fatigue, or maybe the languishing, of it.

My question of the day for you is do you feel this too? What are some ways you’ve cared yourself in the midst of all this?
