On Friday, I had to do a deep dive into self-care.
Why so serious?
Because this week’s killings of Alton and Philandro hit me heavy.
And because I felt called to speak out and take action.
So I wanted to make sure that I was okay. And that I would continue to be okay. Especially because I am choosing to keep up with the devastating news and to take action in response.
So what did I do?
- I canceled all my meetings.
- I didn’t respond to non-urgent emails.
- I took my kid to daycare.
- I went for a run.
- I ran a couple errands.
- I saw my husband over his lunch break.
- And then I took a nap.
I put my oxygen mask on.
So I can put on others’ oxygen masks.
Because it seems like the plane is about to crash.
