Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021
The dark underbelly and worst reality of pandemic is most often a struggle and not a triumphant victory. Living your best life in the midst of pandemic with resiliance courage and strength is a fallacy unless you are a politician, bragging celebrity or very rich. If you are tired, you should be. If you are depressed, well welcome to the crowd.   'Belabored' is a book about this reviewed on npr. Overcoming all despair without help is as likely as a lonesome self made billionaire. We are not all super moms or super heros. Recovery overcomes all, is BS. There are those left behind starving and homeless while people talk about replanting trees as a result of storms or wildfire. Incidentally there are <800,000 to a million dead of disease in this country alone.   
The culture of resiliance promises you can push through any hardship. Well you can't. If your idea of coping is lying on the floor screaming you are at least telling the truth in my book. My idea is to ignore the present by posting too much about the present. Who can it hurt? Sure I am accused of unrelated inapprpriate behavior like breaking the butting in the line rule and not following agreed upon posting turns. No one reads them anyway except 2 obcessed critics, and those who do - admit they are not amused. Truth is good for the soul.
