The past three days in Seattle have been an indescribable emotional journey. How can I help myself and my family face the facts of the new life that is rapidly unfolding in front of us? I seek to enter it with love, trust, an open space to feel everything: loss and grief, love and happiness, closeness, laughter, joy, edginess, and tears. Yesterday, we made the tough decision to isolate ourselves as much as we can, because it is the only decision that will lead us back to a normal life as quickly as possible. It will hurt everybody, but the quicker we do it, the less we ALL suffer. Even my kids understand that.
This is how I got to this point, how we looked at the facts of the coronavirus outbreak in the Seattle area and my family made a heart-centered plan.
