As I sit here and feel the tensions rising, the separation happening, a derisive intent . . . what can we do?
We can do a lot!!!! We can feel the feelings and then control our thoughts. We can use the anger, sadness, fear, worry, anxiety as fuel to spread the fire of love. We are in this together and we can support each other. Reach out and support those who normally support your lifestyle.
Reach out and support those who normally support your lifestyle. For me that is buying a gift card from our local surf shop that has sponsored my son since he was 7 years old, buying a shirt from a friend's small company, a restaurant gift card to a family-owned restaurant, donating (even small amounts matter) to Haven's Fund for families struggling in New York, donating a tree in your Mom's name to Tree People, buying a grocery gift card at the check out and handing it to the cashier or the bagger, supporting your kids' Coaches with a donation (it can be what 1 training session would have been) and for me the more I think of, the more I think of.
We all need support and connection. We are physically distanced but we can connect socially with Zoom, FaceTime, calling, texting etc. We are so lucky that there are so many ways to connect. So:
Love to you all.
