Perspectives on connection and acceptance

I’m someone who tends to make waves regularly. I love deep conversation, conversations that matter. Conversations that help us grow.

Today I had the opportunity to walk my dog along the shore. It was such a luxury after being housebound for a couple of weeks. I still didn’t touch anything and kept a safe distance from everyone but it was a beautiful moment of perspective and reflection.

Here’s a few of the aha moments I’ve had in the last couple of days.

  1. This Coronavirus thing, as tough as it has been, has actually brought me closer to my friends. My friends call and I call them. Before this we didn’t do that as much as we likely could have. We remained close but didn’t show each other just how much we mean to each other as often as we do now. We talk about nothing and everything. We care, we make waves and we support. It’s beautiful. I love having friends who believe in me and my ability to grow and learn. Who believe in my potential so much that they are brave enough to make waves and be real.
  2. We don’t have to be working hard and kicking goals every moment of the day. We don’t have to hold ourselves together 100% of the time. We need to be gentle with ourselves and others. We are doing the best we can in this very moment. Soon enough, when we are ready we will be back to our usual selves, when our verve and calm has returned. Embrace this moment whatever it is – feel it, experience it, notice the thoughts, the fears, the hopes and the insights that come when you observe and allow every little detail. Accept yourself and know that who you are, in this very moment, is okay – more than okay!! Be confident and know that the good of this moment won’t go away, ever, love and good moments aren’t finite. You don’t have to chase them or stockpile them. They are always there. Ready when you are. It’s not like toilet paper, it’s not going anywhere. If it doesn’t happen today, it will come when you are ready.
