You know what makes me happy?
Choosing not to drown myself in current events.
At the beginning of all this, I was obsessed with
Knowing all the latest information.
I also had more physical anxiety than
I had experienced in several years.
My mental health is better when I look away.
Nowadays, I see and know very little news.
It's all the same anyway, repeating concerns and worries
About something we cannot control.
The occasional headline that breaks
From the pattern won't last long.
I see things scrolling through Twitter.
I acknowledge it, maybe look, then let it go.
