I’ve been on edge ever since the US election last fall, and every day feels like we’re spinning further into chaos. I was drawn here today because some part of me feels comfort in my blog.
To pay forward that comfort, I want to tell you, dear reader, I’m sending love and light to you. When times are dark and it takes everything you have just to get out of bed in the morning, remember that there is love, kindness, and beauty in the universe, and in all of us. When times are dark, hold close the light. Focus on it. Add to it. Share love. Share light. Give someone good news. Be kind to yourself, and to others. We have a choice each day to add to the light or add to the dark. I hope we choose to share and nurture the lovely light within us all.
I love you and I’m with you. I’m in your corner and cheering you on. You have good ideas, you’re smart, you have potential. You’re lovable and have value. You’re not alone. You have a voice worth listening to, but you need to do the work and find it. You are absolutely capable of achieving everything you want to do, but again, you have to do the work. Yes, it will be hard. Yes, it will not be fast. Yes, it may go a different direction. Yes, you may fail. But, in the end, YES it will be worth it. Not everyone will understand or support you, but this is your journey, not theirs. I give you permission to explore, to learn, to discover, to create, even to destroy if necessary. You have permission to let yourself be. I’m proud of you for everything you’ve done, and everything you’ve overcome. Believe in yourself, trust the process, trust your decisions. Be patient, give things time. HAVE FUN! You have permission to have fun. You need to have fun. Life is short.
