I have had so many thoughts recently for blog posts that could be inspiring for those around me, and yet I can never quite find the words. Maybe it's just as simple as this................
GIVE YOURSELF A BLOODY BREAK!
The entire world has completely changed in only the last ten months. Nothing is the same. Is it any wonder we all feel tired, confused, and drained? Or motivated, ambitious, powerful, and then bewildered and unsure.
We have won tickets to a horror movie and need to recognize that it is not presented by Disney.
Yes, I do believe we can adapt the experience, but only through care, awareness, and attention.
Some of my friends are going through the most life-changing events that normally would have us walking on Bambi's legs - let alone adding this layer of the unknown. We have no idea of the challenges that others are trying to navigate through. Let alone masks - we also have blindfolds.
I cannot help the world but I can support my own small universe of people, and that includes myself.
In less than 50 years I will not be around. I have children in my life who will be, and if I can teach them that we are not bowling balls trying to knock everything down then I would have succeeded.
Please, please, wrap caution tape around yourself and grow aware that everyone else has it too.
Respect one another and respect yourself. Allow for space and growth. You will still be able to achieve and go at one million miles per hour, and imagine doing it gracefully and carefully.
We can only succeed through support and connection. Oh, and cake helps!!!
LOVE YOU xx
