noun: levity; plural noun: levities
humor or frivolity, especially the treatment of a serious matter with humor or in a manner lacking due respect.
Things are challenging right now, we all know that; I could go on and on about it, but in an attempt at staying balanced today, I’m going to share a little humor with you. I realize the sobering severity of this situation; this post is not meant to be disrespectful or take away from the absolute heartbreak in the world right now. My only aim is to bring you a smile, perhaps a chuckle, and also a peek into the world of a person with an illness that is not completely understood. The video is about Covid-19, but honestly folks, it’s how I’ve felt about MECFS for several years now. Obviously MECFS does not affect people as suddenly as covid-19 does, but it’s equally as mysterious. This mystery or unknown territory leads to advice that points in every direction. Eventually you just have to forge your own path and do your best, which is very similar to how the world seems to be currently coping. We’re all doing our best. So, if you feel like a chuckle, this (totally PG) video just might do it. (Disclaimer – This isn’t an entertainer I follow so I’m not sure what her other work is like, I just stumbled on this video today.) Stay safe 💙
A few more of my doodles below. Using art to calm the mind is incredibly helpful, generally speaking, but lately it’s been an absolute treasure. You don’t need anything fancy, just a pencil and any old paper can do the trick. Remember to sneak in that vitally important self-care time right now. 💕
