Breathe Easy

What a wonderful feeling.
What a wonderful feeling.

Saturday.

I was at work, doing what I needed to do, collecting books to be placed on hold, trying not to think about anything super hard.  I’m just about done when I hear this noise.  No idea where it came from, almost sounded like some kid that was either really upset or super excited (hard to tell sometimes).  I shrug, and wander into the back room to start processing books.

That noise was my boss.

And that was how I found out that Joe Biden won.

Honestly, right now my feelings are a bit more mixed than presented in the comic.  Characterwise, I’m sure Lars is breathing just fine.  And so am I.  It’s like 2020 decided to finally throw us a bone at the end of the year.  Kind of like a miracle.

And yet.

I’m still struggling with this deep down feeling of doubt.  Like, some lingering unease or anxiety lurking about.  What if something else happens?  What if things suddenly flip and What’s His Face manages to pull something off?

What if, what if, what if.

I want to be Lars here.  I want to be able to fully embrace this and just breathe without these under-feelings.  And I believe I can.  I need to take care of myself, though.  I need to make sure that I avoid falling down certain rabbit holes and winding myself up, period.

Then I can settle into this peace.  Hopefully.  And actually celebrate.

  1. Just keep your media feeds turned off, Drew. Some people think bombarding the airwaves with their own words and faces keeps them relevant; don’t give them that pleasure.

  2. Drew, do you think your life is going to be better with Joe Biden as your President? I’m sorry but I worry when he can’t remember what position he is running for, where he is speaking, or can’t remember the current President’s name. Reminds me of my Joe who has dementia! It makes me sad for our country.

  3. Drew, I’m sorry if I hurt you in any way by what I said in my first response. I wish I hadn’t said anything but at the time couldn’t help myself. Since I deal with memory problems (dementia) every single day, it probably made me feel more strongly about Biden misspeaking/forgetting more than most people. Obviously, millions of people think Joe Biden can do the job so who am I to think otherwise! Please forgive me for voicing my thoughts to you. The last two years have been very difficult for me but I still should not have said anything and will not do it again.
