I’m hopping on this afternoon to remind people to stay centered and grounded. I was on Twitter earlier and people were melting down and sharing conspiracy theories about the goofup with the Iowa Caucus. Please don’t.
Take a minute to breathe before you spread disinformation. Take a minute to get centered before you freak out. If you’re already freaking out, pause. Don’t feed the darkness. Remember we are in this for the long haul, so we can’t panic at every point along the way. It’s okay to be disappoined with people you thought would do better, and then you breathe, shine your light and continue your work.
And if you need to take a break, do it. You don’t have to keep up with everything in real time.
