that’s the sound of my breath leaving my mouth as I practice from a mediation series video #3. My company put these together during COVID to help us deal with the situation. There is a whole host of activities to choose from and each come with points.
This carrot and stick kinda gal loves some incentives. I have already reached 2,000 points which means that I earned the highest percentage off health insurance premiums. If I keep accumulating to 3,000 points, I will earn a water bottle. I wrote here that I thought I’d stop but I found out the water bottle counts steps. What the what! I have to have one of those bad boys. lol
I was talking with a friend of mine … Can you hear Mr. Petty in the background?
We have much to talk about these days
When I wrote this, I experienced a fire storm
I was told by well meaning “friends” that I was a traitor
Seriously Meredith Grey?
The two of them (now former friends) went on to tell me I was demeaning and somehow saying I have white privilege is like saying I think I am better than …
Well hell sister, that could not be further from the truth!!!
Me? Better than?? No way. Not even close
I blame myself for EVERYTHING!
The hole in the ozone? My fault for using Aquanet in the 70’s to get my Farrah Fawcett wings. I’m so not worthy … just like Wayne and Garth. Not making light of the situation mind you. Humor is how I try to deal.
For the record, all I meant and what I feel is that I have never personally experienced discrimination for the color of my skin. And who would know better than me, what I have experienced? No one that’s who.
With a hand over my heart (technique learned in the resilience series) I say I wish you a peaceful #free48.
As always, more to come.
