Dealing with Anxiety is my Superpower

Hello 2021, so far things aren’t looking a whole lot different in our lives than they were in 2020. Covid-19 is still front and center, masks are our must have wardrobe accessory, eating out is a thing of the past, a lot of us are still working from home with our kids as officemates. What is different is that there is finally hope on the horizon, vaccinations are finally here! God bless the scientists who created these vials of hope on such a short timeline, the brilliance that was required is mind boggling, but very much appreciated.

Bye Felicia! Hello 2021!

2020 is coming to an end today and all we wish to say is, Bye Felicia! We think we can safely say that we are not sad to say goodbye to 2020, nor will we wax poetically on how quickly the year went by! We felt every one of the days since this pandemic started as we suddenly had to be masked everytime we ventured outside our homes, had to sanitize our hands every time we touched something, were sent home to work and our children were sent home from school, since jobs were cut and lines were the norm just to get into grocery stores.

 

2020, the year of High Highs and Low Lows.

Christmas is just around the corner, it certainly seemed like this year would never end and here we are, just 2 weeks left of the year. When this year began we felt like it was going to be amazing and well, we all know how that went. 2020 has certainly had its ups and downs, but overall it has been a year of unexpected adversity, compassion, sadness, joy and fear. We started the year with such hope, as we always do, and then little by little we started hearing about a disease that had hit China.

 

The Festival of Lights

Tonight is Hanukkah and for those who celebrate, it is a beautiful time of family, food and traditions! Candles are lit, prayers are sung, latkes and donuts are made, then devoured, and history is recalled and honored.

“The miracle, of course, was not that the oil for the sacred light - in a little cruse - lasted as long as they say; but that the courage of the Maccabees lasted to this day: let that nourish my flickering spirit.”
-Charles Reznikoff

 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

December has arrived with lights and Christmas songs on repeat. Inflatables and trees seem to be up in record numbers, maybe the idea is that if we show enough season’s spirit it will make up for a really hard, colorless year. Our thought is, whatever helps you through 2020 (within reason of course), you should do it, extra lights, more inflatables, baking everyday in December, go for it!
