(I wrote this last week during the long wait for the election results, but feel this is applicable to so much in our lives!)
I just wanted to share this, when we are bombarded with all sorts of fearful messages…
You are safe.
You are okay.
No matter what happens this year, just know that at any moment you can choose to ground yourself exactly where you are.
“I am scared, and that’s okay.”
Let’s protect our energy. When things get big and scary around me, I go in. I like to use the energy of my fear and anxiety and CREATE something. I create through writing and sharing, but I also create a safe home for my children, a calm and open environment for my family. I guard my energy and what I allow in.
After this past year, especially, I stay away from anything that throws gas onto my anxiety bonfire.
Protect yourself. Know what causes FEAR and ANXIETY and purposefully practice peace for yourself. For me that is writing, exercising, reading for joy, staying OFF social media and news sites, repeating affirmations, “I am safe,””I am okay,” and knowing this…
When I wake up tomorrow, no matter what the world tells us,
I am still going to be happy and live with intention.
I am still going to live my life as I have all year.
I am still going to love my family and serve others.
It is OKAY to disconnect yourself and care for yourself. It is OKAY to go inward and protect your energy and well being. Let go of what the world is telling you that you should feel and cultivate for yourself the energy you wish to emulate.
You are going to be okay, no matter what. 🙏🏻
