Shattering Glass Ceilings

We made it through the election! That was more suspense than a Mystery Novel, but after 3 times running for President, Vice President Biden is now President Elect. Senator Kamala Harris will be the first Woman, the first Woman of Color and the first South Asian American to serve as Vice President of the United States. Whether you celebrate this news or not, it is a great and historical accomplishment, as well as an equality victory.

“Don’t aim to break the glass ceiling; aim to shatter it.”
-Matshona Dhliwayo

 

Lessons of hope from this election

Here we sit about 40 hours plus after the polls closed refreshing our phone and computer over and over to see how the electoral map has changed. Never before has a map of the United States been so fascinating, Geography teachers reading this, REJOICE! These last 4 years have been hard to weather, we have witnessed so much epheavel, pain, loss, and violent acts being perpetrated in our country, leaving us equally numb and dumbfounded.

 

Taking care of our Mental and Physical Health during a Pandemic

Sometimes it seems like we are in the middle of a weird end of times biopic. Movies and TV shows are like viewing a historical record, OMG, people are touching, they are shaking hands, they are kissing each other's cheek, no masks, crowds, concerts, dining out, it all seems like a beautiful dream! Reality on the other hand seems stark at best, but like the adaptable people we are, we press on. No Trick or Treating seems utterly bonkers, but so does catching or spreading COVID-19 over getting free candy. Reality is way more scary than a Haunted House ever was or will ever be!

Happy Tears, Sad Tears, Tears abound in 2020

What a wild ride 2020 has been. It seems like there were way more downs than ups, but just when you are completely convinced that there is no way 2020 can look up, there is. You see something online that makes you tear up. It used to be that we only teared up at Hallmark commercials, but now it is political ads and news stories. We have become soft in our adult years and our eyes seem to leak a lot lately.

Where is the pause button?

Isn’t it striking that whenever you scroll through social media the posts always seem to be encouraging you to try something new, to be thinner, to use this vitamin, to sign up for this diet program, to be more socially conscious, to be more involved, to try this type of yoga, to meditate, but only using the ____ method, vote for this person, don’t vote for this person, do this, not that, eat this, not that, accept your flaws, don’t except your flaws-fix them, change them!!!!!
