I've been very emotional the past couple of days. I stayed away from social media in an attempt to sift through my thoughts and feel the emotion in hope I could let it go. But I just couldn't. I felt deflated. My trust in humanity had gone from little to none. I questioned my beliefs and my ability to see things from a postive perspective. Everything I did became a challenge. I can't remember the last time I felt this way, and it was scary.
So I messaged some girlfriends who gave me the advice I needed to read. I rolled out my mat with Lucas and we gently stretched as the sun went down behind the mountains. I breathed deeply. I made nourishing food. And I watched an educational documentary that confirmed my decisions about what I eat.
I guess I realised that no matter what everyone else does (even if it is the majority of humans and those who control us), it does not make my impact any less important. It doesn't mean I should give up on what I believe in, or stop supporting the industries I think are making a difference. I know I can grow old, happy, knowing I've done my absolute best for what I think is right.
I cannot control what others do, but I am in full control of my own decisions, as you are of yours. So, if you find yourself in a time of doubt or confusion. Remind yourself of who you are, why you're here and the type of mark you want to leave behind in this crazy world 🌏💙
Now I can see the rainbow on a cloudy day, can you? 🌈
