Just wanted to give a shout out to all who are having a rough time right now.

There is so much going on in the world on so many levels and it’s all overwhelming, I know it. Just remember, you are loved.
Don’t forget to love yourself a lot too, okay?
I know sometimes it’s hard to feel it in the moment, but there is usually some method behind the madness. Some opening in every change, an opportunity for growth.
The really hard stuff, the stuff that happens TO us, is often on the level of a spiritual initiation. We would never consciously choose to have loss, heart break, illness, a plague, climate change, and social and political unrest, all in the same week. Why would we?
But we can choose to allow these crisis moments to open our hearts, to expand our sense of compassion for ourselves and everyone else.
Initiations can open you, crack you open, force you through the eye of the needle and that can soften you if you choose that.
Or it can harden you, make you bitter and even more full of hate.
We get to choose, in every moment, which way we are going to go. We can take our sorrow and anger and find healthy productive ways to release it, to create change.
We can. And I believe that we will.
Today, I am sending you so much love. Fill up on love today. Take care of yourself. Take care of your people. Ask for help if you need it. Give help if you have some extra to give.
