Summer is for living a little.
backstory: There’s a fine line between living a little and living dangerously. But after the health challenges and acute loss I went through this past winter, I decided I’m not postponing happiness any more. So, this summer, and despite the constant fear of contracting Covid-19 and other airborne diseases, I’m taking risks to live a little.
Just to be clear, I’m not talking about the “I’m over it!” careless attitude some people have adopted regarding Covid. The abandonment of masks, alone, is a huge let down. In any case, there are still things (for me) worth the risk of attending in person.
How are things on your side? Do you find yourself caught between caution and a desire to live? If so, how do you strike a balance? As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
