Happy Canada Day my friends! I am so grateful and honoured to call myself Canadian! To be able to live in the majestic beauty of this land, with my friends and family, in freedom and peace, surrounded by the richness and diversity that so many cultures gift us with, is a blessing that I cherish everyday. Eh?
No matter what you may be experiencing in your life, at work or in your relationships you are worthy.
No matter what is going on in your outer world, your worthiness is inherent and absolute.
Even if you have a contemptuous self-loathing relationship with yourself, your worthiness remains irrefutable.
Your self-destructive behaviour can not tamper with your worthiness.
The unpleasant and cutting opinions of others towards you, cannot inflict any damage on your worthiness.
Spiteful, jealous people shredding your character cannot quash your worthiness.
You are emphatically worthy. Period.
Imagine, how your life might be different if you believed that you are ever worthy. 🦋
2020, the tipping point, men and women of all races embracing their humanity for all sentient beings, for life itself. 🦋
Love is always the answer. With love all conflict and chaos ends. Love inspires compassion, understanding, respect, appreciation, humanity … 🦋
When we argue with what is, the facts or the truth about someone’s behaviour, the difficult circumstances we find ourselves in or perhaps the discomforting past, we find ourselves mentally and emotionally struggling, suffering or drowning in a tsunami of relentless pain.
Acceptance of what is, empowers us, it emboldens our courage to open that door in front of us and step into a new world of possibilities. 🦋
Let’s begin again. We have paused, reflected and felt the tug for more … life, joy, meaning and fulfillment. We’ve started to reimagine what our life could be. We’ve begun to ask ourselves the questions that dare us to reclaim that which matters most in the here and now. What do I really want? Why do I want it? How would I feel having it? Where do I begin? When do I take my first step? 🦋
What we think affects how we feel, which in turn determines what we chose to do or not do, foreshadowing outcomes. 🦋
Yes, we are human after all.
Right now, for many of us, our mental and emotional capacity, strength and resilience are being tested and stretched to their limits.
Most of us are yo-yo-ing through the restrictions and unpleasantness of living together yet separately in this unexpected covid-19 world.
One day, we are the hero’s and heroine’s of our story as we slay the slings and arrows of this outrageous pandemic and then the next day we can barely get out of bed let alone purge our house or write the next Pulitzer Prize book.
It’s okay to be zig zagging on our life’s continuum, to feel two things at the same time, to be grateful yet sad, energetic and productive yet lethargic and unmotivated.
Yes, we can be happy to have a home, food, health and safety, and yet feel angry about the unpleasant effects that COVID-19 is having on our lives.
Bottom-line, there is no right way to be, except to be real, honest and vulnerable with ourselves, to compassionately give ourselves permission to be whatever fits in the moment, to move through this ‘craziness’ one day at a time. 🦋
The gift of Easter is hope, the divine anticipation of renewal, the glorious possibility of a new life. Happy Easter my friends. 🦋
In this historical moment, we are all united in a massive transformational shift, preparing ourselves to rise out of the ashes, renewed and ready for the world to reopen itself to the dawning of a new reality. 🦋
