Are you experiencing anxiety?
There are many many people feeling unsettled in light of the recent US election...
many of them are north of the border
here where I live,
I refuse to subscribe to the constant bombardment of the media...
I am not a news junkie,
it affects me in a negative way
that I often find crippling...
Limiting exposure to negativity is a self preservation technique that I have had to employ over much of my adult life...
if I did not avert my eyes
occasionally to the horrors in our world
I would never sleep a wink at night.
I am not putting my head in the sand,
one cannot live in a society and not be informed...
but we must listen to our hearts
and decide just how much we can absorb and tolerate and still function.
Nature is a beautiful and rich sanctuary
that feeds my soul.
Seeking small and simple things of beauty provide me with moments of Joy.
I wonder what lies ahead on this journey...
uncertainty can fill us with fear.
Fear that can stop us from living a full life
that same fear can poison our spirit
Some will find taking action will help them...
others will hold home, family and friends close.
What will you choose to do?
How are you coping?
Today in this time of uncertainty,
Embracing the moment...
savouring the beauty in nature
will help keep me stay focused on living a joyful life.
Just this one simple thing
is enough to help me maintain my perspective
from spiralling down the rabbit hole.
