Let's face it... This week was really insanely rough. On top of the novel corona virus taking over 100,000 lives last week (and disproportional taking the lives in communities of color)-- this week, we were greeted with a series of events that reminded us of all of the hate, violence, in justice, and inequities that exist in our country. It's just NOT OK and is so infuriating. And more than anything, it makes me just so sad. I know, personally I hit my breaking point this weekend--it all felt like too much... because it is.
I woke up on Saturday in a huge funk and could barely get myself out of bed. But I forced myself to get up, I rolled out my mat and just laid outside in my back yard, searching for something to anchor on. For once, I finally said, 'just let it out. let it be messy' ... 'feelings are for feeling. let it out, don't deny what's there.'
And trust, I really did just need to let it out. From there, I was able to just sort things out better.
My morning rant and outburst actually led to a very healing space, in which I was able to lean into a meditation. I wanted to share with you in case it might be helpful.
Be well, and take care of YOU. Honor however that the looks like for yourself. #justshowup
Who am I and do why write this blog? Each time I ask myself that question, I find that I have so much more to learn and discover. "Who am I" is an ongoing process, and just when we think we've figured it out, life has its way of throwing us a ton of curve balls-but that's why its called a journey.
