“We’re all just walking each other home.” Ram Dass
We are facing unprecedented times and with that unprecedented fear. There is so much information that begs our attention; it’s overwhelming & anxiety-inducing.
But I keep asking myself: What does the world need from me? From us? And the answer I keep receiving is...care for each other.
We are searching so heartily for the solution. We are aching for ways to help, to feel better, to love one another. What if the way through this is to show up for each other in any way we are able? Check on your friends. Show kindness to strangers. Donate money or items when you’re able.
And, of course, care for yourself. Give yourself the grace to feel all of your feelings. Take breaks from social media and news outlets. Cuddle up with your pets or just a cozy blanket. Drink tea. Drink coffee. Read books. Journal. Hope. Dream. Create with what you have on hand. Bake. Cook.
The way we make it through is by caring for each other and ourselves. There is no perfect answer but we can choose kindness in all our actions.
Let’s all walk each other home.
I love you and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it,
