June is such an exciting month of the year. Not only do we get to celebrate fathers, but we also get to celebrate Black music month and Pride. There are so many ways this month represents the direction the world is going in, and that direction is towards more diversity.
Living through a pandemic makes the head spin. We’re experiencing high levels of fear for ours, and our loved ones’, health and safety, have a financial anxiety over the economy for ourselves/the community/our company/the world, while also being thrown into a situation where we suddenly have to adapt to completely (for most) new working conditions far away from our office with regular routines and co-workers, to a far less ideal workplace in our home.
Have you ever lost your train of thought mid-ride? Instead of barreling full speed ahead into your brilliant proclamation, something else popped up. Suddenly, your enthusiasm was replaced with the panicked urgency of thinking (often out loud) “crap, crap, crap, what was I literally JUST thinking!?!?”
