I woke up this morning to news about world markets crashing, Corona virus numbers doubling, speaking engagements being canceled, and so much more.
And yet, I am feeling very optimistic as I wash my hands in hot soapy water and make a list of more food to store up on “just in case.”
Why am I feeling good?
Because my faith is strong that despite what is happening in the outer world (where I have little control) my inner world knows that whatever happens, ultimately I am OK and I am going to be OK.
This is a conscious choice to not dive into the worry and despair and anxiety that is prevalent right now.
If I had a magic wand, yes, I would wave it and make the virus disappear, and sick people would get better, and war would cease, and love and peace would prevail.
My magic wand is my heart and my heart says:
I am blessed and I give thanks that in this moment I have many in my life who love me.
I am blessed and I give thanks that in this moment I have everything that I need.
I am blessed and I give thanks that no matter what happens, I am whole, healthy and complete and will continue to survive and thrive.
And so it is.
Remember, we get to choose our thoughts and actions so choose wisely.
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
