Today is all about packing the things that are going on the actual plane with us – things we’ll need short term that we can’t go without for a few days.
This is mostly clothing and toiletries for the big people but also ipads and laptops and diapers and wipes and cat litter and a litter box and cat food and bowls for food and water and puppy pads and OMG THERE’S SO MUCH TO PACK I’M NOT PANIC’ING YOU’RE PANIC’ING.
This one is a SLIGHT click bait / bait and switch thing as my life coach asked me to write about surrender ala the Serenity Prayer in light of all the stressors going on in my life right now and for those who want the reminder:
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.
Trigger Warning: This talk contains information about sexual assault and violence which may be triggering to survivors.
I’d like to pretend that you’ll never need to know how to help a friend because we all live in a world without war, violence or abuse. Without trauma. But. Just in case my pretend world doesn’t exist and you find yourself needing to help someone.
Or to help yourself.
Recovering from trauma feels like a roller coaster with rumination, flashbacks, depression, anxiety, and hypervigilance.
I’d like to invite you to get off of the roller coaster and board Leander Air where we’ll learn how to help our friends who have experienced trauma.
Hello and thank you for flying with Leander Air. A few announcements as we begin our talk. There is no safety card in the seat in front of you, unless you’re watching this from a flight in which case, where are you headed today?
