We are on day five of the Blizzard of ’22, and it feels like we’ve never left holiday lockdown. Last year we were all tucked in with Covid; this, we’re homebound with unplowed streets and driveways, a city-wide driving ban, and never-ending snow falling.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what to write and share on social media, particularly during hard and scary times, and what I realize now is that there is always a hard or life-threatening time going on somewhere and that I might as well write.
If I waited until the coast was always clear, I would never write or share, so here I am. And not to minimize or be unaware of what goes on around me in the world, if I want to bring it back to the raison d’être for my site here, I will have to say, wear the dress.
Take every opportunity to show up for yourself and those in your world as your best. Use your good china, put a cloth on the table, make each meal a celebration, always make room for another guest or two, put on some lipstick if that’s your look, and wear the dress or whatever it is that you might be keeping for good. Good is what’s going on now.
