I usually don’t get sad or down unless something happens that is sad.

I’m not usually rude or irritable, except to spam callers.

Or so I tell myself.

But you know what? The other day I was down, for no particular reason. I was extra sensitive. I needed extra validation. I wanted to cry when I made a mistake. Okay, I did cry. And I was sure everything was going to come crumbling down. I was sure I was going to be living under a bridge with a shopping cart. It might have been Mercury in retrograde, but so what?

And there was another day recently, when I just didn’t care. I couldn’t motivate myself to do what I needed to do, what normally is no problem at all. So I pretty much puttered all day long.

And there was another day where I just loved my animals – even more than usual – like my heart wanted to burst with loving them.

And there was a day where I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and wanted to kick every stuffed animal the dog left laying around. And I was irrationally angry that my glasses fogged up over my mask and my nose was stuffed up.

And then there was the day when I couldn’t find anything. And I was late for everything. And I was just discombobulated and couldn’t really pull it together.

And there are days like today, where I’m firing on all cylinders and everything takes half the time it normally does. I’m an efficiency machine.

And the day where I was just happy. And that was the day I was insatiably curious.

What a week, right?

All these things and more. They happen to everyone. So give yourself a break. You’re human. You are fully human, and it’s all part of the ride.

In the meantime, remember these things: You are loved. We are all loved. Let’s all be kind. And in all things – progress, not perfection!

Love and light,

Maggie
