This 2020 thing might not be your jam. Maybe it is. In some ways it has been splendid for me and I’m grateful. In other ways all I can say is , “ugh”! In either case if you are feeling squeezed or overwhelmed take small steps in the direction you want to do. They add up. Even a couple steps back are okay too. I know they helped me.
