Dear, <<First Name>>,
“…to awaken all of humanity, awaken all of yourself. To eliminate suffering in the world, eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. The greatest gift you can give is that of your own self transformation.” Lao Tzu
It’s been several weeks since the last time I felt inspired. The times we are living through seem dark and heavy. The phrase of the day is “mental health.” Feeling mentally stuck, I’ve wondered about becoming “dark and negative.”
Have you been experiencing a sense of loss or hopelessness? My prescription? The best antidote to despair is action. Rather than shutting down, ramp up!
Give yourself a project, no matter how large or small, and then take one step forward into completing it.
For me, that has meant an odd mixture of cleaning out closets and volunteering. It feels genuinely energizing to create fresh spaces on the one hand, and connect with new people on the other.
I have “rehabbed” three troublesome closet spaces, become a volunteer voter registrar and block walker for local candidates.
What can you do to start your own transformation? Reply to this message and let’s talk!
