So how do you face work, life, school, anything when you are dealing with a emergency?
Not fun, eh?
My family is in Northern California with scary fast moving wild fires. In fact, mid-conversation with my sister, they suddenly had orders to evacuate.
As of mid-afternoon MST, 20,000 have been evacuated, 1,500 building destroyed, one fatality, it is an official state emergency. A breezy day, not helping anything, no.
So how do you deal with it when loved ones are under threat and you are nowhere close? First give yourself a break. If you need to leave wherever you are, leave.
But if you can make it through the day, give your employer/school/whatever your best but realize, too, you might have to take your pace a slower.
I find myself writing and re-writing sentences.
Slow down, breathe, check in often and allow yourself to be human.
Good luck, kind wishes and blessings to all those facing similar situations.
People Not Things.
