I’ve been making “funny mistakes” lately . . . like trying to get onto a Zoom baby shower party, only to learn that I had the date wrong . . . by two weeks! Or having my mat and blocks all set up for a zoom yoga class, waiting for the teacher to let me in . . . but I was too early—by 24 hours! How about mistyping my name so often that I’ve thought about changing it to Lidna!
I could blame COVID-19 or chemo brain or stress or aging . . . and perhaps they each play a part in creating some anxiety in my life, but I choose to just laugh it off and to do the things that bring calm, joy, and peace into my world.
