As my father has always said (really, since I was very young, always), we're all going to die. And we don't know when. I find this a comforting thought, because it encourages me to notice all the love and joy that is present right. Now. Give yourself an extra pat on the back today, or give your loved one an extra squeeze. Keep life juicy, everyone! #AdviceOfTheDay
#AdviceoftheDay: Forgive yourself for that stupid/embarrassing/wrong thing you just did/said, acknowledge your human imperfection, appreciate your ability to be kind to yourself, and then move the hell on, with a clear head, into the next moment of your day.
Tolerating times of transition can bring up all your ugly demons, bad habits, and fear responses. You can't rush through the transition, and you know in hindsight you will probably appreciate its gifts. If you're struggling today, use your power of choice to be kind to yourself, give gratitude and have faith in the process at hand. Give it up to the bigger forces at play, however you meaningfully conceive of them (God, universe, Santa, whatever), get therapy support, or get your sweat or meditation on, and know in your gut that something worthwhile is at work. It's corny but true: this too shall pass. We don't always know what's "right" or "best" until after the fact, so just be where you are. #AdviceoftheDay #LifeTransitions
