I’m going to be real here. I’m feeling weary. From a day to day basis I have energy, gratitude, and joy for my life, but as I look over the events of the past year, I feel weary. I’m tired of the fear, the hype, the helpless and frustrated feeling of watching our society make decisions that don’t seem to have any common sense behind them. Officials in positions of authority are making mandates that don’t reflect scientific evidence. On one hand we came together as a community in the spring, but now our political climate has our country sitting firmly on two different sides. I’m tired of our medical freedom and bodily autonomy being under attack. I worry about what the world is going to look like for my kids and grandkids.
I sit with these feelings and acknowledge them. In the past I would have tried to bury it, for fear of having negativity in my life. But I have learned over the past year that the best way to deal with these kinds of feelings is to acknowledge and move through them. Be frustrated, and then do what I can do. I can’t control everything, I can only control my actions and my reactions.
So, I acknowledge my weariness and assess what my body needs. Movement? Nourishment? Rest? What is going to fill my cup? I could make excuses and say I don’t have the time or money, but I always want to make sure I am living in alignment with my values. My health is one of my core values, and if I don’t spend time or money on my health I am not living in alignment. My weariness is signaling my body is in a certain state, and I am making steps to help my mind and body move forward.
It is not easy, to rise up from a place of lower energy and vibration. It takes work. But the work is absolutely always worth it.
