Good evening, Kindness Warriors. I hope you all had a good weekend. As I have been taking inventory of my life these last few days, I am reminded of finding the right perspective and appreciating so much when I once thought I had so little. It occurs to me that, while I use many tools and checklists to control my chronic depression and anxiety, those same tools are helpful to anyone, not just headcases like me.😜
We are still in difficult times. Many of us have struggled, dealt with loss or tragedy. It seems overwhelming and we can find ourselves out in the wilderness alone. Many of us feel “lost in the woods.”
Here are some items to remember as you start your week:
Your checklist for the week.
- Life is better with a soundtrack.
- We are all connected.
- Life is love. Everything else is a waste of time.
- The world is a better place because you are in it.
- Keep kind on your mind.
- Everything is gonna be alright.
- In case you didn’t know it, I love you.
- The Light Of The World is within each of us. Let it out. Let it shine for others to see, as they too need help out of the darkness.
One last reminder for those feeling lost in the woods…
“Getting lost in the woods” is a phrase often associated with dark or troubled times in life.
If you are lost in the woods, take a moment. Take a deep long breath. Then look around you. The trees that surround you are not your enemy or your obstacle.
Look close and you will see, God has put those trees around you. They are there to protect you, to give you sustenance. They help form and define your path. Those trees are life giving and life saving. They offer you love and joy. Those trees are your friends and family, and safe spaces.
If you ever feel lost in the woods, take a breath, look around and know, you are not alone! Trust me, I’m an Oak…
