Do you ever feel like your wise mind or a higher frequency is speaking to you from inside your own brain and heart? Does it happen more than you like to admit, but surprise you every time? Me too.
This isn't a way to say things are going well right now.
This isn't my way of convincing you or myself that there is no reason to worry.
What I was trying to tell myself, however, is that in the face of all that seems hopeless and BIG and SCARY, we are not helpless. I have power. So do you.
Power is using your privilege, however that manifests for you, to dismantle white supremacy.
Power is drinking enough water and eating food that feeds health and not disease.
Power is being your own friend.
Power is taking three deep breaths when you feel panicked.
Power is reaching out to someone for help when you feel helpless.
We aren't in control of everything. But we have the power to affect SO MUCH more than we realize.
Take care and use your power for good.
P.S.: Below are three organizations that I donated to recently in the continued fight for justice for the Black, Trans, and Indigenous communities, and wanted to share the links here in case you are able to offer some money as well, no matter how modest the amount.
