We are all connected. This is so apparent right now during this Covid pandemic.
We are all together on this journey called life.
Life has joy and life has pain, there are ups and there are downs.
But, that’s what life is all about.
How can we know the joy without having known the contrast of pain?
You see, life is 50/50. There it is, 50 percent is great, but 50 percent is not so great.
And that’s okay, and a beautiful thing because we are humans living our human life.
So, here are 3 tips I’ll share which can help you if you’re feeling overwhelmed today:
- Take a moment to sit still, breathe, and become present in this moment. For example, “here I am, sitting at my desk, typing, looking out the window on a clear spring day. I just had lunch and just fed my dog.”. Notice if there is anything wrong in this very moment. Usually, the answer is “no”. Amazing, right? The problems lie in your future thinking which is not even reality!
- Make a list of 10 things you are grateful for. Take out a piece of paper and do it now. Do you have food today, a roof over your head, a friend, clean drinking water? Then after writing down 10, notice how you feel. You see, gratitude and fear cannot live in the same space. And there is always something to be grateful for.
- Beliefs are only thoughts you’ve chosen to think over and over again. Thoughts can be changed. This is especially useful to know. So, what thought do you want to think on purpose? Anything? Yes, anything!
Here are some examples: my future is bright; I can do anything I want to do, my life has meaning. Now it’s your turn to try on a new thought and practice it.

Here’s to gratitude, Being Present and choosing wise thoughts!
