I have been looking through the women’s magazine today and one phrase rang my bell “Love is not just a feeling – it is an attitude”.
This concept of choosing my attitude toward everything that happens in my life has been working well for me. I consciously make a decision to choose what I want to see and how I want to feel.
The wildfires have been raging in our region. It is nasty!
On Tuesday, my husband and I were driving home after his last pretty eventful and dramatic stay in the hospital. “Please, be careful”, Bob warned me as I was pushing my breaks to slow down on the curve of the road. The smoke crept pretty fastly over the highway and the visibility was getting worse rapidly. As different thoughts were buzzing in my head, I was trying to get focused on driving to get home as safely as possible.
For the last week, we were up and down emotionally with health situations, doctors’ appointments, test scheduling… and of course wildfires. Are we to evacuate? Are we to hide? Where? How?
I don’t forget the beginning of the school year. We are doing the homeschooling this year with the online charter academy. It’s turbulent. But we are handling it.
I choose an attitude to see all this through the teacher of love.
Praying, visualization of light, releasing the energy of frustration and fear through meditation.
My heart is aching and the anxiety is hanging on my shoulders creating the annoying tension between my blades.
As I said, I’m looking at this through the teacher of love.
Here how it works for me.
- Feel it. Know it. Be aware of it.
- Visualize light, healing, the movement of energy.
- Be open to people and accept with gratitude anything that resonates with healing, support, kindness, love.
- Consciously soften my heart area to let that energy of anxiety go.
- Trust that everything is happening for a reason and for our good.
Things will improve. Our son is getting adjusted to the school online. My husband has been fine. The wildfires are contained and the smoke is becoming thinner.
We can breathe now and we are safe.
Please, talk to me in the comments. How are you doing these days?
As always, life is a journey of joy. Embrace it!
