“However many holy words you read, However many you speak, What good will they do you If you do not act on upon them?” - Buddha
In this uncertain time, it is very easy to just think about ourselves and our needs. Not knowing what this present will bring in our futures, we can without thinking jump off the mental cliff and act selfishly. No matter how wonderful you are in “normal” times, I am positive everyone has had these feelings as of late.
I am not here to make you feel bad. I want you to understand that you are not alone in this. Yes, we are all feeling the fear and anxiety. We need to face them; not bury them. I find that reaching out to others helps. We are lucky that we have the technology to communicate with people. Be there for others. No words of wisdom are required. Just checking up on people and listening to them without judgement is all you need.
We are many things, peeps, and resilient and compassionate are definitely on the top of the list. So today, call someone and check on them. Text or FaceTime if you want. Try to reach a new person everyday this week.
Sending love, strength, and good mojo to you all!
