This is what I woke up to this morning outside my house . The craziest haze rolled in and out again within 10 mins. I wanted to share this moment of magical peace, because 99 % of the time I’m focused on the many things that evoke fear, anxiety, grief etc , you know the list ... I’m working on allowing moments of reprieve, seconds or minutes if I’m lucky, to drop my armor, put my phone down and just be still . It helps . Calms my nervous system, quietens the fear and helps me recalibrate so I don’t get depleted. We are in a long ass marathon . This is not a sprint. Plan for the long haul . Do what you can to be gentle with your thoughts and kind to yourself, deal ?...
