Video Update from Italy: March 31, 2020

This video is from one week ago, March 31. It is a response to my post “More than Statistics,” which was a vulnerable reveal of the myriad of emotions I had been feeling, and am still feeling. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get the video to load. So here it is, edited down into 3 sections with a whole bunch cut out. As someone lacking in tech skills and working from a phone & tablet, this is the best I can do – lol!

Bottom line: Honor your emotions, whatever they are. Know that they will pass and other emotions will come. Take care of yourself, in whatever way you need: bake, pray, dance, write, draw, nap, watch funny videos… Even cry and scream, if that’s what you need. Feel your emotions deeply and in doing so, know that you release them and allow new ones to emerge.  We are, truly, all in this together.

Stay present. Stay positive. Stay well.

  1. “We are co-creators.” Yes! Thank you for reminding us that we still get to control our aspects of the narrative. It is what it is. True. But it is also what I WILL it to be. How I choose to respond also has its place in this new thing that is happening to humanity. Bless you! Ciao!

  2. Hi Jan!! Jeff Bell alerted me to your situation and I just wanted to pop in and say hi. If anyone can get through being quarantined in Italy, it is you, girl!! Stay strong & healthy!! Xoxo Ursula

About this blog

Everything begins at home. Our relationship to home influences how we see the world and how comfortable we are in it. My research of many years, including my PhD dissertation on the psychology of home, reveals key ingredients that are essential to feeling at home. To finding home and creating home when feeling very far away and disconnected. These blog posts are mini meditations of sorts. Enjoy.
For more information, please contact me directly. I always love speaking to groups!
