happy autumn, friends. this one’s a casual newsletter since today’s the last day i have to send out a september issue and i want to give a shout out to all the survivors out there.
hey, makers and breakers!
hey, those who choose what gives them life!
hey, warriors of gettin it done!
i’m hearing story after story about ramped up anxiety, mental illness, depression, sickness, getting covid even if vaccinated, and more. we gotta hold on tight, people! we’ll get through. as babe’s australian sheep herder said, “that’ll do, pig. that’ll do.”
how are you? i’m thrilled and exhausted. lonely and overbooked. in the flow and feeling pressure. life is always full, especially when the world feels pear shaped. are you also feeling the effects of climate change and are concerned for the women in afghanistan? how about settling in after moving or your laptop breaking? all of life’s micro and macro concerns coexist every day.
i’m always leaning into gratitude as a baseline. it can be hard to feel thankful when your stove doesn’t work or your state is on fire. but, it’s always possible to slow down and reflect inwards to realize how much we have. i’m teaching more yoga these days and am grateful for the opportunity. and, of course, i’m grateful that you read my newsletter. thank you.
