👁🗝 "Listen To Yourself" ✨🕯 | Today, I feel overwhelmed with all the content here on social media. So much advice. So many perspectives. About what's going on & how to handle it. So many "answers". I'm having a hard time sifting through it all. Holding onto my own. I cannot scroll today. Not even for 2 minutes. Or I'm gonna lose it. Today I am gifting myself stillness and silence. Away from the digital noise and information overload. Not because I don't appreciate it all, I do. But because right now, I need space. .
There is no "way to be" about these times. I'm one of the lucky ones. Safe and privileged at home. Guilt. There is so much pain and suffering. But I am still choosing to spread light/hope. Both are right. I'm feeling fear AND faith, all at once. Grief AND gratitude, all at once. Human AND spiritual, all at once. Sad and sacred, all at once. I have given (and still am) what I can. Not required.
If you wanna be optimistic, then be. If you wanna be pessimistic, then be. If you wanna be both, then be. Realistic? Yes. Hopeful? Yes. Hopeless? Yes.. Sad as FUCK? Yes. Watch Netflix? YES. Hustle? DO IT. Cry? Let it out. Laugh? As hard as you can. Smile and cry at the same time? I've done it a dozen times. Serve/donate? They need you. Take care of yourself? Please. Both? Incredible. Socially responsible? Mandatory.
