One of my clients screamed at me today- I know it had nothing to do with me and I usually have thick skin but I was really rattled today. Also he is essentially the town drunk but sober for 6 months and I’m so full of hope and fear for him.

Is Anyone else watching the Chernobyl miniseries? It’s SO good. I love how they show the fucked-up-Edness of the Soviet Union but also the dignity and pride of the people.

I basically have two speeds with my boyfriend 1. I love him more than life itself and look forward to carrying our babies and spending our lives together 2. I’m going to leave him because he does not pull his weight with housecleaning

I work with homeless people who struggle with addiction and mental health issues... and i’m So burnt out. Lately I can’t stand my clients and I just want to yell at them. I feel really ashamed of being so upset with such vulnerable people. I’ve had burn out before - but never this bad. I’m just not really sure what to do- I don’t have any time I can take off

Dying earth gloom 

Since college this Wendell Berry poem has been what I reflect on around Easter. I’m hoping to find ways to practice resurrection this season but what come keeps coming to mind is that before things can resurrect - they need to die.

As soon as the generals and the politicos
can predict the motions of your mind,
lose it. Leave it as a sign
to mark the false trail, the way
you didn’t go. Be like the fox
who makes more tracks than necessary,
some in the wrong direction.
Practice resurrection.

I’ve always loved Easter- the idea of resurrection really resonates with me but church services with everyone wearing pastel dresses and passing out candy does not really resonate. I’m wondering if anyone has some alternative ideas for celebrating. I just want to honor the theme of what was dead coming back to life.

I have an earache, a fever, and swollen tonsils- also I work in shelter and get exposed to a really unexpected amount of feces. Is this the flu? Or some mutant strain of torture?

I have to admit, the church of the forest and the ocean has always been my favorite church.

Just a fun little statistic I read: 36% of people check their phone during sex.

Let’s all aspire to be the other 64%

I’m not entirely sure what I did wrong (or maybe right) but pretty sure my last batch of kombucha had more than “trace” amounts of alcohol

I apparently caught the stomach virus at work and threw up in front of my staff. Like I puked on my shoes and in my hair. Pretty sure I need a new job now.

Where does a mansplainer get his water? 

When your a therapist and also super addicted to sugar - you write yourself a treatment plan with warning signs for relapse. We’ll see how this goes

when I'm tired of living my best life I sometimes take out my second-best life and live that instead

Alan watt, Greg Boyle, Richard Rohr- who else should I be reading❓

I’m reading @mike book right now. I just kept laughing because my last experience with church was attending a small group where everyone there felt the need to tell me I needed to STOP listening to Rob Bell’s podcast because he was a heretic and it’s very important to believe people will burn in Hell forever - yet in this book and in my life- he showed light on a path back to the table
