I've never been what I consider to be a risk taker. I sometimes do things that others might consider to be brave or even commendable, but as far as actual risk goes, I'm not really a fan. I've never been more aware of this trait of mine than I am during this pandemic. My bubble during this time is my husband, our dog, two cats, and Phyllis, our chicken. We order our groceries, Zoom with family and friends, and hang out within the lines of our property. Pretty much all the time. For months now. This is my comfortable risk level.

Over time I've had to come to terms with the fact that everyone is not, in fact, like me. For others a widened bubble of family and friends is their comfortable risk level. For some backyard pool parties is their comfortable risk level. And for some going places without a mask is their comfortable risk level. Aside from that last one, and maybe a the one before the last one, if I'm really being honest, I'm having to become OK with what others choose to do.

Non risk taking and rule following me is doing her best to breathe through all the decisions I cannot control. Deep breath in...deep breath out.
