Cereal with Hand-Poured Milk is a meandering little blog I wrote a few months back. It touches on Tridemic Trauma, the pain of uncertainty, and our collective grief and exhaustion.
What really resonated with folks, though, was this single sentence:
“What can we half-ass without harm?”
We have been going. And going. And going...
Even the most stoic and grounded and well-resourced among us are seeing, feeling, and showing signs of strain.
I’m tired. You’re tired. Everyone is tired. And not the kind we can mitigate with extra sleep or self-care. It requires something more.
Coach Meg Rentschler and I rumble with all of this and more in her recent episode of the STaR Coach podcast. It was easily the most fun I’ve had talking about a serious topic, and we managed to touch on all the things people are struggling with most right now.
