Today’s blog post was supposed to be about setting boundaries. I tried and TRIED to write and publish but the words wouldn’t come. I didn’t quite understand what was happening. Sincerely I thought it was writer’s block. Then it came to me, I’ve been here before…this numbness and disengagement coupled with a calm like fatigue that isn’t peaceful. More life loss because of the color of someone’s skin. Which is also the color of my skin. As I write, I remember how I tried yesterday as well. I tried to avoid the images, stories, reels, posts, think pieces, blogs, etc. I tried. I spoke to one of my coworkers today about my frustration and my inability to avoid, resist, and block the emotions that come with this. One coworker knew what happened in Buffalo, the other did not. Before you ask yes the one who knew is and the one who didn’t know is not.

My heart aches for the families of those who tragically lost their lives. When will it all end? Will there be any justice? Will there be any peace? I pray so. Whatever you’re feeling today, acknowledge and honor those emotions. Do whatever you need to do for you today and in the upcoming weeks.

Let Your Light Shine!

  1. I’m expecting the tag title😃. I tag it as let the light of self-care/ emotions shine! It is okay to feel these emotions but positively make use of it. It’s okay not to be okay, just have to work through it. Thanks for sharing your thought. 👍
