When we spend too long reading the news these days, we really feel an impact. Yowzer! Fortunately, we can develop skills of putting our focus on something soothing.
Here are some items that uplifted this author in the last couple of weeks.
- Extra Kindness for Us
How about an article that focuses on being kind to ourselves more than
ever! Make everything that flows ok. Pam Grout is a great resource: Here is a link to her recent post. https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#inbox/FMfcgxwHMZHmfFjNWknRgwkwGNFqmVbc
2. We were born for these times.
We can bask in the vision held out to us by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. “Do not lose heart. We are born for these times.” We can feel this deeply moving essay.
3. Updated List of Good News about the Virus
Did you get some uplift from reading last week’s list of good news among the not so good? This author didhttps://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/another-roundup-of-positive-updates-on-covid-outbreaks/?utm_campaign=newsletters&utm_medium=weekly_mailout&utm_source=25-03-2020
4. Make a list of the Good coming from what we would not have chosen.
Parents and children out for walks. Kids of all ages and sizes. One little guy (maybe three years old) was trotting along the trail. He looked up at this author and asked if he could pass me. With assent he zoomed off ahead, the adults keeping him in view (off in the distance). 😊
One woman noticed that Congress had begun working together to pass legislation responsive to this time. They are working together in a way they have not been for years!
Many pouring out generosity in myriad forms: the blueprint to make face masks, the giving masks to hospitals, the shopping for those who need help, the staying in touch and more.
5. Images that Conjure Joy
Out to by food, Laura Lee drove by an empty parking lot in her neighborhood. In the town this dirt and rutted lot has functioned as an overflow lot for a new building of shops and restaurants. Our star’s imagination popped with a wonderful image: a choreographed piece, the graveled packed ground filled with people of all ages in their own space six feet apart, dancing to blasting rock music.
Basking in her mind’s eye our heroine loved feeling a triumphant spirit rising in her, humans undaunted and expressing joy. Subsequently for several days L called up the inner picture again and again filling herself with that radiant feeling.
What a great opportunity to develop skills to keep ourselves upbeat! Holy Mc Goalie! Yes we can!
