Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
#Truthbomb? I don't watch the news. At the end of each day, I ask my hubby what I need to know. I have "alerts" on healthcare so that I can "do my job" effectively in the field of healthcare programs aimed at improved the quality of healthcare.
Well, in the event of Covid-19, it's pretty hard to avoid the news these days. And at some moments, I feel inundated with the overwhelm, the fear, the lack of TP.
For the last 2+ years, I have created a daily practice of gratituding. I list out five things for which I am truly thankful. I focus on the thanks as the beginning of my day.
And since I am unabashedly glass-is-half-full, I will express to you my gratitudes as arrived this morning- because even social isolation/quarantining/illness has silver linings.
1. I am so thankful that my kids are not in school. 2 of my 3 kids really struggle with the mainstream schooling environment. In many ways, I have been trying to figure/plan and design them out of school for at least a year. Now I get to hang out with them, teach them life lessons, and spend more time in their awesome presence. (Honestly)
2. I am so incredibly grateful that my job is remote. I can do my job from literally anywhere and I get paid. (amazeballs)
3. I love divine timing of receiving money at the same time that I needed to purchase a home computer in order that my kids can actually participate in online learning. I am so thankful that I am able to offer this to my kids. (thank you, Universe!)
4. I am so thankful that a good friend who relies on 4-walls income has paid off her living situation so that her stress can be eased as she is unable to work right now.
5. My lovey honey brought me coffee in bed (as he does every morning) and we were able to laze around and really connect without the rush of "getting ready". i sincerely enjoy time with him.
Things that I didn't mention but are also in my mind - I was able to be outside, I am close to water (my favorite), the temps are above freezing, my home is warm, my fridge is full, my friends are communicating, my pile of books is available. I am so incredibly privileged and I know it. I am able to help and offering space to do so. What are you thankful for today?
You gotta feel it to heal it.
