“Quit resisting. Let your pain pierce your hard heart so the agony can flow out and the love can rush in. It’s the love that will bring you back to life.”
Pain, uncertainty, and anxiety are uncomfortable emotions. We don’t like to feel them and often fear facing the root cause that triggers these emotions. In the moment, it seems easier to push discomfort deep down inside. When we do this we lose the opportunity to face what frightens us and grow from the experience. Awareness of this is the first step. This week work on what you are resisting, and examine why you are leaning away from life rather than leaning into it.
Getting past COVID-19
I don’ t even know where to start with this blog….truly. Because I honestly don’t know if we ever will get past it. Too much has been lost, time, celebrations, and above all, the many lives lost. We are all suffering from COVID fatigue. We spend way too much time online, we are sitting constantly, and even though we are spending more time with our immediate family, we are desperately missing our friends. So what do we do about this? Choose 1 new activity that you can do safely and shift your mindset. Get up and move throughout the day, find something that makes you smile, and log off the computer. We are not going to get over what COVID has done to us but we can grow beyond its chains and make it a better future.
