  • Day 87/100 #100daysofseedsoflight ✨
    Blah blah gratitude blah blah light and it feels like the world is burning down. HERE’S THE THING. Despair gets us nowhere, and this is the best way I know to stay afloat. ✨
    Keep on looking for the light. ✨
    When it’s dark, so dark, and the supreme court and family separation and the guns and the earth and poverty and disease and our own personal challenges, we all have them, and family challenges and difficulties in our intimate circles of friends and in our communities and all of it and more and the darkness threatens to overtake us - LOOK FOR THE SEEDS OF LIGHT. ✨
    The tiniest seeds. The sunshine on your face. The pillow beneath your head. The breath going in and out of your body. Teeny teeny tiny things. ✨
    These teeny teeny tiny things ARE seeds of light. Do not lose sight of these seeds. And know that the seeds of light will grow in direct proportion to the amount of attention you give to them. I promise.

    EDITED TO ADD - I have been very careful these last 86 days to not include the details of the darkness in these #100daysofseedsoflight posts. It was intentional - these posts are about the light and I want to leave them unencumbered. And yet it has felt increasingly uncomfortable to not mention the elephants in the room, so today I made an exception. Tomorrow it’s back to business as usual.
