My mother referred to as me from Massachusetts yesterday. “They have been speaking about bomb cyclones in California on the information. I by no means heard of such a factor earlier than. Are you okay?”

“Yeah, we’re high quality.”

“They confirmed cities beneath water!”

“That’s true. A few of my buddies in Santa Cruz are fearful about it. One took a photograph of an entire part of West Cliff Drive that has fallen into the ocean. (I used to reside close to there.) However he’s alright. Everybody I do know is alright (though there have been some shut calls).”

“However what about you? Are you getting any rain?”

“Oh, yeah. My condo complicated has a brand new pond function it by no means had earlier than—it is engaging! All the pieces’s okay.”

“How are you going to joke about issues like this?!!!”

“Actually, Mother. We’re high quality. Don’t fear!”

After all, that is like telling a fish to not swim. Worrying about issues appears to run within the household. However I feel that is true for anyone who has had to deal with calamities (just about everybody). As we undergo life all of us expertise sufficient laborious occasions that it’s simple to develop the sample of worrying concerning the future and what may occur. And for many individuals that turns into such a power downside that it’s laborious to benefit from the current second. I hear that due to the political chaos, pandemic, and monetary instability of current years, nervousness and the melancholy that comes from that’s epidemic. In comparison with these worries, the extent of rain we’re getting in Chico doesn’t appear to be that massive a deal.

Not that I’m immune, in fact! I lived by an earthquake that shook my home off its basis so I do know firsthand how laborious disasters will be. However I additionally bear in mind the great issues that got here out of that. And I do know the rain is filling up our empty reservoirs proper now so I’m simply having fun with what I can. That’s my New 12 months’s decision this 12 months—to seek out moments of pleasure each day—and it has been going nicely to date.

Am I taking any flower essences to assist with that? Sure, certainly. “Releasing Fear and Worry” with California Valerian added to particularly handle fears of the long run. I feel it’s serving to.
