I have to say this is the perfect word today. I have been feeling adrift all day. Lost and a bit confused.
I have been asking a lot of “what ifs” lately. Primarily I am sure because of the all the negative news. I open the local news website to get the weather and see articles on North Korea launching another missile or Trump making a outrageous statement, potential impeachment, more racism in recent weeks than I can recall etc.
So much negativity, anger, resentment and hostility that I am beginning to just plain feel lost by all of the “what would this or that mean”.
I need to get back to my basics to lose the adrift feeling. The basics of what I enjoy. Maybe some gardening, reading a good book, sharing memories with loved ones or just plain taking a nice walk while listening to a little music.
Now I need to implement that and maybe even not watch the news for a bit or open those websites. Let’s see what I can hold myself to in order to lose this feeling.
