How are you doing?
The ‘interesting times’ we’re living on keep getting more and more interesting and it’s only natural to feel overwhelmed and exhausted sometimes.
Just as our phones and computers and other devices need some time to install upgrades, when we take deep rest and sleep well or even sit or walk and daydream, we’re processing a lot of new information, we’re shifting energetically and potentially transforming ourselves and, together, the world.
Even when we feel like life is too messy to offer any kind of hope at all, we can recognise that the storms we’ve already survived HAVE strengthened our roots
It’s so easy to get distracted and look at all the people we wish were doing life differently. From people we know to world leaders and everyone in between.
But that distracts from the power we ALL have to make each next best possible decision based on whatever we know about whatever it is we’re working with.
As Gloria Steinem says, ‘We have to behave as if everything we do matters, because it just might.’
This isn’t about delusions of grandeur but thinking about all the tiny choices we make each day and how they might be bringing us CLOSER to the world we’d like to help co-create or further away.
If you’re feeling exhausted, know that you’re not alone but that the more time you can allow to rest, journal, heal and dream, the more potent this time can become.
What HELPS you do these things?
What else nourishes your heart and soul? (As well as body and mind).
What self care and Self care practices are you already integrating?
What are you struggling with?
How much energy might you free up if you start asking yourself, several times a day, what do you need right now? What is the best possible decision in the moment?
It’s all the tiny actions that add up and create transformation and, hopefully, a better world for everyone.
