In today's storytelling,
It may feel like we're in a game of snakes and ladders, one minute up, one minute down. We may long for those carefree ( by comparison) days of weeks gone by, or we may imagine the future positively, a new future ( or we may get stuck in negativity).
The circumstances of our life will come over the horizon towards us , this we cannot slow or change , yet we can choose our response... always.
We can choose to focus on the snakes , or the ladders. You may feel perhaps you're moving between the two. Be kind to yourself, move gently towards the steps of those ladders.
Fear of loss, of unfairness, of life circumstances being unjust may well surface, again...be gentle with yourself.
Remember where focus goes, energy flows.... what you focus on grows.
There is an underlying freedom to where we find ourselves, we have no control of what is presenting to us , yet we can choose to view with a filter of kindness, compassion, love, support and community.
What are your many blessings today?
Perhaps it's time with family, something in our busy life we get so little of. A moment of kindness , a smile and acknowledgement This could be the perfect time for going back to basics, for reflecting on what is truly important. To connect with ourselves and our love for our family and friends.
