In Search of Serenity

Finding peace in a pandemic through writing.

I’m OK in this time of the pandemic, but that doesn’t mean I have serenity.
For the last few days, I’ve experimented with coffee. I’ve had a hard time sleeping. I wake up too early or stay up too late. I feel amped or I feel tired. I may feel irritable and then I have to dial it back, waiting for the feelings to pass before I say something I might regret later. I don’t like regretting something I’ve said, so I avoid talking during tense moments and I just listen. I’m still recovering from the coffee.
