Yesterday was my first day off social media and I won’t lie – there were some moments when the temptation was great. But I filled my day with sewing and reading and cleaning out the fridge and prepping weekend meals (see all those ands Mary?). I also did some journaling and was reflecting on a conversation I had with my daughter this week. Within 15 minutes of arriving at work, three people told me how much they had to do and when I tried to commiserate, they responded by telling me how much MORE busy than me. Sigh. Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could practice just a tiny bit more compassion for one another? I have four months left in this work-life and I want to do just that. Listen with kindness and compassion instead of getting pulled into the “I’m busier than you” dance and hope that maybe it will rub off.
