As gas prices wise, the news blares, and bombs explode, are you finding a way to create peace for yourself – a little each day?
With Russia and Ukraine in the news, there’s lots of fear and anxiety afloat. My son is reading the newspaper and giving me regular reports on death, mayhem, and destruction.
Since I feel pretty helpless to assist with that situation directly, I’m looking for ways to keep positive and help from a distance. Who else believes in the power of prayer?! 🙏
I try not to dwell, or ruminate.
Every day when I get up, I read something positive, stay off social media for an hour or two, and enjoy being with my kids and driving the carpool to school.
I find when I have lots of listings, closings, and contracts to work on, I can keep moving forward and don’t waste a lot of time or energy worrying about things I can’t control.
I find I’m squeezing my kids a little more and telling them I love them with a little more purpose.
By 8:00 AM I’m in the office and absorbed by work.
What about you? Do you like to watch the news coverage? How does it make you feel?
