You know me, I’m all about positive reinforcement! Especially saying it out loud and to yourself.
It has been tough the past few weeks. The world seems to be spinning out of control. We all have so many feelings about todays events. I see it on social media. The outrage, the anger, the sadness, the fear. I understand all of those emotions. They are valid. Even I feel some of them.
But I have one thing that I want to remind you to remind yourself as we go through these times:
It is okay for you to have dreams and goals and to work towards them!!
You don’t have to abandon them. There will always be stuff going on in the world. Much of it needs our attention. Find the balance. Volunteering, giving of time and money, supporting, any kind of activism can still be done WHILE you strive to live your best life. Giving yourself to your community is part of living your best life. There is room for all of it.
No need to feel guilty or shame for wanting to acheive a personal or professional goal. Especially when people are out to do harm and halt our lives, I feel its more imperative that we shut them down and thrive in society today. In spite of them! And give back in any way we can!
