Give & Take

It seems when crisis becomes a mode of daily living, changes in circumstance present in sharp relief as “good” or “bad”. 

Black and white, without perceived shades of grey.

I have learned the habit of always coupling any change for the worse with something positive I can find. Sometimes, it requires an effort but if I don’t make this practice a priority, I have learned to expect I could become overwhelmed quickly and be rendered paralyzed to act when it’s necessary to remain on point.

Today’s change for the worse was having the gas and electricity turned off. So, no power or hot water, stove. But, the good news is that I have shelter until April 3rd. I think that’s about 10 days I didn’t have yesterday. I’m grateful for that. 

Electricity and heat are overrated, anyway. At least they are when the alternative is being wet and unsafe.

I’ll take the good with the bad every time. So, yay.
