What do you do when a wave of fear washes over you?
How do you respond to the tsunami of life that crashes down sometimes?
I take myself to the beach.
This act of loving kindness toward self
is a commitment.
A stretchy goal.
Five days in a row,
no matter what
You see, coming up this Friday I’ve got surgery
I’m dancing with my fear.
I’m reclaiming my power.
for when I’m scared,
I tend to contract.
I push back.
I get angry.
Instead of isolating, I
Gotta get out of the house.
Instead of contracting,
I’m releasing the pinch.
And sharing my strengths here with you, because perhaps you feel the feelings of life intensely.
and that’s okay
Instead of holding it all together…
You allow yourself to Weep. Tears. Ample tears. Lotsa snot…
and instead of playing the look-good game…

Release. Let go.
Feel the fear. Release the pinch.
Turn towards others instead of curling up in fetal position.
Trust yourself to not abandon yourself.
Focus on your part in the nightmare around you.
Do what you can to center yourself.
Repair your relationships.
Then do what you can to serve others.
Repeat. Have Faith that this is enough.
You are enough.
