Letting Go: During a week like this, the stream of news can consume your life. You’re allowed to take a break. Are the issues of the day important? Of course. But so are other things. Yesterday, I got remarkably uplifting reports from my kids’ incredibly supportive and caring teachers. Yet, I still found myself unable to loosen the vise that has gripped my head for the last few days. I’ve often allowed myself to be absorbed by the news as a means of avoiding the stresses presented by real life. After getting into that habit, I’m finding it hard to do the opposite — to free myself of the all these open browser tabs and get back where I belong. On Thursday, Hillary Clinton was seen taking a hike near her house. A woman in the middle of it all, who just suffered the worst loss of her career, can get out and let it go for a few minutes. So can you.
