Feel like you’re living in a dystopian novel without the beautiful heroine or strong hero to save the day? You look around and see your life today, right this minute, and you’re not happy about the way things are going. What the hell happened to the world where everyone knew the rules and played by them?
In this time of changing realities and renegotiation of the rules we can feel lost and overwhelmed. We want so badly to reach out to someone who will make it all better, someone who will just make us feel safe. Such a tempting answer to the problems of today, but are you really willing to give away your power? Are you willing to allow someone else to tell you what to think, where to live, what to do for a living or who to love? Stop. Look around. This is YOUR life. Only YOU can create the life you want. You can’t change anyone else. You can’t make them do the things you want, but you CAN control yourself.
What you think and do now will determine your tomorrows. Are you spending your time being angry? Are you blaming others for your world? Or are you reviewing what is, and dreaming of new ways of being? How do you feel about your dreams? Can you swim around in there for awhile and enjoy the feeling? If not, dream bigger! Dream until you feel like you’re in a fairy tale.
I know, when things look so dark it’s hard to feel positive. There are nights I have to breathe deeply and practice EFT to calm my body enough to get to sleep. And some days I have to work really hard to find compassion for people in the world. But I know the work is worthy of my time and energy. When I feel like giving up, I remember,
Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
Because my dream is a world of light and love I will continue to dream big. Please join me in releasing the past and reaching for a future of light and love.
