In times like these it's easy to freeze, to be stuck in worry, in fear thinking about what the future will hold. Here is 7 encouraging things in times of crisis, one thing is: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
I can’t but keep sending you love.
One of the things I truly want to clarify is that when I talk about lean into love, I don’t mean to forget about your problems and go and only think positive thoughts.
THAT IS UNREALISTIC! And not only that, but it also suppressing your emotions. Truth it, it’s SO OK to feel all the feels. And for myself, I want to clarify that I actually encourage you to embrace your fear.
One of my friends put it like this “See fear as a friend that you need to have a talk with, approach it and take it to lunch”. Because the more we talk about our fears, the less power it can have over us.
What we are referring to when leaning into love is to face the fear, but come back to love.
"AND HOW THE HECK AM I SUPPOSE TO DO THAT WHEN I JUST LOST MY JOB?"
Yeah, leaning into love can be a bit triggering for some right now. And truth is, that’s when we need it the most.
The world needs love right now.
We need to be OK that we are not in control and the more we can get back to looking at what’s important in our lives, and the more we can get back to love and gratitude, the easier it will get.
Yes, we can. We can get back to love.
Look, life is hard right now. And you might read about “let’s be creative, let’s move your body….” and you might feel like doing nothing.
IT'S TOTALLY OK TO DO NOTHING, LET YOURSELF BE THERE TOO.
That’s the thing, doing nothing, not moving your body and just watching the news will make you paralyzed and it’s easy to lean into depression.
I am writing this out of my own experience.
That’s why i am so driven to spread love. Because I have been there. I have lost it all.
I have been deep down in depression, I have been on rock bottom. I even had moments of wanting to give up.
I was stuck in an abusive relationship, where I was almost strangled to death. I have lived off of nothing (literally bread and water), I lived on less than paycheck to paycheck.
What got me out of that place was:
That is why i will never give up on spreading love to anyone that needs it. I will hold my hand out so many times, and I will not give up. I know it's triggering sometimes to see that positive person saying “lean into love” when you are scared and have nothing.
I GET IT.
I had to hear it so many times until I could believe it. Until I saw that I was not making my reality better with pushing people away, or hiding, or being scared, or negative, or angry. I had to get up and take action.
ONLY I COULD DO THAT FOR MYSELF. AND I HAD TO DARE TO ASK FOR HELP.
(Ps. I now have an amazing husband thanks to my abundant mindset and some dang good manifestations)
Here are 7 things to think about in times of crisis:
Encourage you to its ok to feel all the feels, and to not be OK. But that no one else can make the choice for you to get back up
Community matters and maybe you are doing OK, but does anyone in your community need support right now. Have them join the community calls.
To be honest, being vulnerable is OK. That even though times are hard, we can get through it together.
Know that you are not alone. You might be annoyed be getting these weekly emails, I know I sometimes get irritated by all the newsletters I get. But then all the sudden there is one that I just feel - WOW, I NEEDED THIS. This letter is just one of those I hope you feel that you needed.
You are allowed to freak out and be scared, but let’s talk about your fear, let's name it. Let's lean on your community and work through it.
Notice were you spread fear to others, because that fear might truly hurt someone else. So dealing with our own fear, might save someone else from not living in fear.
Acknowledge yourself. You are doing the best you can, NO ONE WAS PREPARED FOR THIS.
I see you and I adore you, no matter who you are and what you are going through, I have been through hell and back and I made a promise to life to never give up on others in need.
So I now give my life to support others. No matter what you need right now!
