Novelty: the quality of being new, original, or unusual.

I’ve self-diagnosed myself with novelty fatigue. The last year has been an onslaught of newness and I’m exhausted– probably because change is hard.

A person’s support system (emotional, physical, financial) is so important during times of upheaval. We need touchstones to orient ourselves and to provide assurance that some things are constant.

When the whole world is in chaos, our illusions of control are shattered.

So, I’ll do what I always do when times are tough. I’ll go for a walk, talk to my family, and Listen to the Radio.
