Are You On Edge Too?

With the full strawberry moon, the eclipse, planetary alignments, months of quarantine, days of protests and terrorism, no wonder I’m on edge.  Aren’t you?  I’m so tired of all the chaos.  I’m tired of people acting so maliciously towards one another. It’s exhausting me.

I want a good long nap.  I want to wake up to a gentler world, but I think I’d have to sleep a long time.  I don’t watch the news anymore.  I hardly go on social media.  I’ve been watching shows (thanks to all who gave me such great suggestions) and I’ve been reading.  Trying to raise my vibration to match where I like to be – out of the chaos.

But it’s not working very well.  I feel like I’m getting sucked into the muck and it stinks.  Even the kids had to be deprogrammed after being with their dad last weekend.  And every little thing is irking me lately and that’s not my normal way.  So what’s going on?  Are you feeling this too?

When I get quiet, I know that this is the perfect storm for change to arrive, but it’s not coming as quickly as we’d want it to right now.  It’s messy in this world.  People divided.  Fear reigns.  And tempers are flaring while an invisible virus runs rampant.  There’s a huge issue of dishonesty and distrust of everything.  How in the world did we get to this place?

Well, I can see how we got here, but we’ve got to get through to the other side where the change (for the better) is embraced and we are united.  I don’t know how it’s going in your part of the world, but here, it’s messy.

Has anyone got any suggestions on how to navigate these troubled waters?

  1. I don’t live in America but I can drive to it in less than two hours from my home…

    Things aren’t great here, either. And it overwhelms, all of it.

    Writing about it helps me, although I don’t necessarily mean writing on the topic itself. It’s almost saturated, these days…to the point where my brain can’t absorb, much less think conscientious thoughts…

    I have no answers.

      Thank you for sharing. I write in my journal daily which helps. I stopped searching for answers. Now I’m simply trying to be peaceful and healthy and see how it all unfolds.

    Honestly, it hurts my mind thinking about it. I’ve gone into a news blackout and have done things like gardening and playing music to occupy my time.


    • janieleeds says:

      Me too Rob. I don’t want to see the news anymore. I just want to feel serenity and peace…and healthy. Hope you’re having a lovely time by your pool in your garden.

    It almost feels like the world changed overnight. I mean, I guess in the United States it was overnight, November 8, 2016. 😦

    In your area are you able to get out like to restaurants and such? Being face to face with someone and talking has helped me tremendously get out of my funk. We’re doing our Thursday breakfast club with the guys again and on weekends I’m starting to do activities with friends. It’s helping. Sending good vibes your way, Janie🤗

      We don’t have that reopening yet. I have seen a friend and we’ve social-distanced for a visit in her garden/yard which was good. I’m glad you can get out! I think that’s so important, especially now as long as we stay healthy. Hugs to you Dwight! Thank you…Fingers crossed we open soon

    When you figure it out, please let me know. I’m ready to bang my head against the wall because of people being such idiots. And yes, I’m tired and frustrated and angry. Mostly because I do try to be a decent, caring, considerate human being and I see so many people just not even making the attempt. I think this would be so much easier if I didn’t have my kids to worry about, but I’m really a mamma bear when it comes to trying to keep my kids safe and everything right now makes that so hard to do. I just keep trying to find the beauty where I can while still trying to stay informed. *Virtual Hugs!!* You aren’t alone in this!


    • janieleeds says:

      Thank you TJ! I think we are all having a difficult time in different degrees. I can relate to the Mamma Bear and trying to find the beauty in the simplest of moments. Virtual hugs to you too…thanks for being you! ❤️

    Janie, I just read a helpful post at Boundless Blessings by Kamal of 10th June. You might find it grounding too. Be kind and loving to yourself. Xx

    Janie, five minutes in nature helps me, having several yarn related projects on the go and new creative ideas. A news blackout helps too. I can sense how constrained you feel by your ex’s behaviour and influence and also by what’s happening in the world. They do not define you, my love. ❤
