As if an egg beater was turned on inside my brain and then someone else started adding the ingredients to make a dump cake. Sure, it will all be fine in the end, but for right now, THIS is a HOT MESS.
Anyone else feel that way?
8 days ago, I learned that I would be homeschooling my kindergartner and second grade girls…..for two weeks. I would have to cancel 8 clients. But we would reschedule. It would be fine.
And then the news just kept getting worse. While they powers that be haven’t officially announced that homeschooling will continue for 10 weeks instead of 2, that’s the general consensus as state-by-state announcements roll out the extensions. It’s to flatten the curve of the growing pandemic.
I get that.
I get wanting the world to shut down so that we don’t infect more people than necessary. I get the greater good.
But my brain doesn’t.
My brain understands schedules, benchmarks, activities, and time. My brain understands goal attainment and work.
Because of the Covid19 precautions, my world has been shaken like a snowglobe. Nothing is in the right place. Every anchor has been upended. And I am floating in an unstructured mess.
Immediately, I get the sense that I’ve lost myself. (sigh)
But that isn’t true. I am still ME. I haven’t traded my identity for something else; I’m simply spending extra time doing some things that I don’t enjoy as much and I’m not as successful with.
It doesn’t mean that I’ve lost the skills and talents that bring me joy, confidence, and strength; it just means that I’m exercising some weaker muscles.
It doesn’t mean the snow won’t settle; it just means that my current view is cloudy.
So who am I? Who do I want to be through this snowglobe shake up? Who will I be when the snow settles and my anchors return?
Who are you? Who do you want to be? And who will you be when the storm passes?
