Is it cancelled yet?

Before Covid hit us, many would go around saying Christmas was bring attacked and on the verge pf being cancelled. That it needed saving. I won’t enter that debate. The irony is that a pandemic in 2020 indeed ended up canceling Christmas for many.  Actually, more things than that ended up being cancelled.  For me Christmas was not cancelled. But I digress just a little.

The word of the year is “vaccine”. And, in this month some may argue its “omicron” or “surge”. Or perhaps because of all the uncertainty that currently exists there’s a new phrase of the month “is it cancelled?” I have found myself asking that phrase repeatedly? Or sometimes “should we cancel” x, y, or z plans? We had been in a phase where we previously asked “is it back” but look how quickly things turn.

Things can change quickly. I think that’s a major lesson for the year. We have to not stay stuck in these times of uncertainty and must learn to sway with the wind.

  2. For me, I stay in proximity to body and breath as much as I can, interacting with what’s directly in front of me. So much is not under my control and learning to ride with the wobbles gracefully has become the new norm.
