Doing what I can

I’m taking small, incremental steps. I don’t want to be overwhelmed by too much change at once. Also, with each change I make, I ask myself, is this something I am doing out of love for (not fear of) and is it bringing me joy?

For me, these are important questions. If changes bring me joy, I know they are permanent.

So – today I officially registered as a Green Party volunteer. I have no idea yet what that will look like – what role I will play. But it will be for the Federal arm of the party and it will be something that I will thoroughly enjoy – I will make sure of that.

Today I took Abby for a slow stroll through New Denver on the lakeside trail and through town – because that was the activity that called to me today. I bought a vegan spread instead of butter. I bought eggs that came from happy chickens.

I bundled up my older wool socks. The donation store was closed but I will likely take them to Nelson anyway – at any rate, they are in the truck and ready to go to a good home.

One small thing at a time. But with each step, I feel I am doing something positive – and that helps balance the “news” that is so hard to hear and read. At least I don’t feel helpless. And, more importantly, I am doing something “for” – not “against.” That’s key.
