What about me?!

Although I’ve received my two doses of the Moderna vaccine and I’ll still be wearing my mask.

So where was I one + years ago when all of this chaos broke out and where am I headed?

Mid-September 2019 I was between Los Angeles and New York City seeking employment in the television industry. I had several appointments and a job offer when I got the urgent call to get back to Chicago.

My wife’s business lost a key management member and I was needed to step in. So I did.

Now it’s mid-May 2021 and between the business, the family, my moms health, the loss of another Grandma, Covid, my automobile accident (I was t-boned), the physical therapist, the fighting of stress and depression, I’ve been thinking like Admiral James Stockdale, who said in the 1992 VP debate, “Who am I? Why am I here?” and even the Talking Heads 1998 song, “How did I get here?”

Feeling overwhelmed with whatever life is about right now leaves me feeling as if I’ve been on an unintentional sabbatical and I’m hungry and thirsty for improvement.

A physical, mental, sensory, creative, emotional, social and spiritual improvement.

Now more than ever, as I left the Physical Therapist this morning I do need to focus on me, not just as a mid-life thing, because what about me? I’ve to put my oxygen mask on first, to help and do more good, for me.
