Between my Epic two-parter Halloween, the Cub’s winning the WORLD SERIES, and Election mania…I haven’t gotten a lot of sleep. Mix that little sleep with a dramatic election night and what do you get? A hot mess and a major dent in the Halloween candy. I know I’m not alone in this.
With all the things going on in the world and the uncertainty that a lot of us are feeling, it’s important to remember that there are things we have influence and dominion over. FOCUS on those very things. We don’t always have a choice in what’s happening in the world, but we do have choice over how we react.
If you’re feeling sad, angry, or even afraid, that’s ok. Give yourself the time and space to express and work through your feelings. You can choose to free form write – a process that is super cathartic and allows unedited thoughts to surface without judgement. You can also have an adult temper tantrum. Find a safe spot in your house and beat the crap out of a pillow. ( Just make sure your cleaning lady isn’t downstairs — awkward. )
After you feel like you’ve expressed the emotions, it’s important not to dwell there. Focus on what YOU are creating and being the change that you wish to see. If you don’t like the leader that has been chosen for you, are there opportunities in your life where you can lead in a different way?
I promise you this is a way more empowering place to be. Making the other side wrong might feel good in the short-term, but long-term it only leads to more suffering.
Tonight I’m hosting a group of ladies at my home and we will be making vision boards for our future. I know we can’t all be at my house together, but I hope you join me in owning and stepping into the values and visions that you hold for yourself and the planet.
P.S. I will be posting a video on how to make a vision board soon! Stay tuned!
