Self-care is not selfish. When exhausted from responsibilities, resentment brews beneath a thin veneer. Instead of turning to anti-depressants, alcohol or illegal drugs, take time for self-care. It is Win/Win for your loved ones and you.
- Be in the moment. Give yourself a few minutes each day to be, not think.
- Take a break from stress. A five-minute walk can change perspective.
- Treat yourself to simple comforts. You deserve it.
- Play. Connect with your inner child and have fun.
- Dare to Dream. Everything man-made was once someone’s dream.
Captain sets the anchor firm
In safe, calm anchorage
Two A.M. in howling winds
The anchor frees its hold
Set adrift with no control
The vessel doomed to crash
Waves are whipped to beer-like froth
React or blow away
Harbor snug was perfect choice
Or so the captain thought
Storms disrupt the best laid plans
To teach, so we may learn
Lives on Earth are fleeting times
For soul progression growth
Thrust outside the comfort zone
Be lost or reach for home
Guidance there, for us to ask
Free will, but help nearby
Practice stillness listening
The angels wait to aid
Life is full of miracles
Go forth, fear not, be brave
God’s got this, the plan is set
Believe! Feel Joy! Rejoice!
Wish not for the return to “normal”
Selfish agendas, divisiveness, wars
Hope for a “new” way of being
One that honors Earth and all living creatures.
Dial down expectation
Refuge found divinity
Honor life, thank the planet
One eternal energy
“Be still!” No entertainment.
“Sit there and think about it!”
Worldwide virus halts the train
Forced to face our inner fears
Look around at status quo
New days dawn, the birds still sing
Time to chill, step off the wheel
Wait the storm
