“The dark does not destroy the light;
it defines it.
Its our fear of the dark that casts our
joy into the shadows.”
~ Brene Brown
Take a moment to reflect on how this appears in your life right now.
Instead of wishing the dark away, how can we embrace it and uncover our joy?
In this time of crisis, accepting the difficulties, the fear and the rollercoaster of emotions that show up is so important. Only in facing our fear can we allow the light to shine forth.
I have found the light when I shift my focus from anxiety to gratitude.
I am grateful to have the hot water to shower in the morning and wash my hands throughout the day. I am grateful that I can get food at the store. I am grateful for Spring and the changing landscape of colors and textures every day. I am grateful for the feel of sun on my face. I am grateful to have furry and non furry beings who love me. I am grateful for technology that lets me connect with people near and far. I am grateful to be alive and well.
Take a moment and reflect on what you are grateful for….
Notice the inner shift.
From anxiety to gratitude.
From fear to love.
There is a nourishing power here. Find your middle ground.
