Fuckery... definition by Urban Dictionary - (noun) Insidious deceit, treachery, falsifications & evil works intended to harm, hurt and/or destroy the intended recipient. Fuckery can take many different manifestations.
I am not interested in getting political with you. As a yoga teacher, I find myself in an interesting position... desperately trying to stay grounded and neutral through all this fuckery. It's been a hard year. And if you're feeling how I am feeling, which I think you are, we're all really tired of it. We've been living / surviving through a global pandemic since March, a severe economic downturn, dumpster fires & shit shows in the political arena, civil unrest, the greatest loss of life since 9/11, and climate change raging and consuming from coast to coast. We are living through a collective traumatic experience and there is no end in sight. Boston University has called it "The Great American Trauma." I am calling it The Age of Fuckery.
And yet, here we are. The birds still sing, the sun still rises, a new season is upon us, and we too shall prevail. It's the only way. We can't stop here, my friends.
"If you're going through hell, keep going." ~Winston Churchill
And that's what we are going to do... Keep moving forward. My friend, Gina from yoga said, "where there is breath, there is hope." And she's right.
So take a deep breath, relax your jaw and shoulder blades, expect a little less from yourself, allow time for grief, take no shits from anyone, spend time in nature barefoot, leave it better than you found it, carve out quality time for self and your people... and let's give it all we've got.
We are resilient.
Let's not forget all the nurses, fire fighters, scientists, doctors, grocery clerks, waste management staff, farmers, teachers, and ALL the essential workers who take a major risk everyday so WE can keep going.
Thank you so much!
So here's to October! To healthy happenings, cleaner habits, healing humanity, new beginnings, and to getting through all this fuckery together. Now... let's do some yoga!
And Thank YOU, my friend for your love and support.
