Choose Love.

Choose love.
Choose new beliefs. Choose to know that you are already good enough, just as you are, in your humanness. You are doing the very best you can with what you have. We all are. Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others.

Upheavals

Who are you to think, that after all you’ve been through, that you won’t make it this time? You’ve gone through so much in life already, of course, this is just the next thing. It’s no bigger, no smaller, but you ARE stronger, and wiser, and more experienced, and you know you will of course come out the other side. There is no other choice.
I am the calm amidst the storm. Serenity is the calm amidst the chaos. I walk now, the storm raging around me, trees falling, waves from the sea lashing against the shore, storm clouds gathering. And I walk, holding the light, anchoring it for all to see.

Adaptability. Resilience.

Fruits and squash grow alongside train tracks, or on steep slopes. Rice farms are planted wherever they can fit. Even my neighbours tend to the unruly bamboo to harvest its shoots in the rainy season, and harvest the bamboo itself for poles and furniture.
No matter the regime changes, no matter the global climate, no matter the word “pandemic” seeps through and across TV channels and cellphone screens.
They adapt. They stand strong.

Dive Through Anyway

Fear. It’s a topic that’s been cropping up a lot lately.
What can you do when fear crops up in your life? You may not realize it yet, but you have options.
Of course, this isn’t just about swimming in strong currents. This applies to anything. That conversation you’ve been avoiding, that move you want to make, practicing a new language, trying a new activity, speaking up for yourself. Remember to come from a place of love. A place of trust. Remember that everything you’ve ever been through has brought you to this moment, and that’s it’s only by going through this next scary thing, and trusting yourself, that you can grow and learn and step forward in your life.
