Busier Than Ever: A Rose and A Thorn
Since transitioning into my new role, I haven’t had much time for writing lately. In many ways, that is a rose because it means that I’m living out my mission and values by doing more of the rewarding, redeeming, but very difficult work of building better relationships and more equitable and inclusive communities.
However, even though I’m having all these new experiences, the realization that I have not been able to set aside time to reflect on them in written form has definitely been a thorn for me, as writing has been an important outlet of expression and a very important part of my own self-care process.
Taking some time this weekend to put some thoughts down on paper.
