A lot has transpired between my last podcast and the one airing tomorrow–specifically, COVID-19.

It’s making us feel uncertain and unsafe.

These feelings aren’t new, of course, but our experience of them now is unprecedented.

This is hard–all of it, and COVID-19 is the motherlode of hard.

The pain is real.

I know one thing, for sure.

If I can remember to:

Pause, pray, put one foot in front of the other and breath–deeply, I gain clarity and perspective.

Clarity and perspective move me away from fear and closer to who I aspire to be.

Repeating this exercise eases me into a calm heart space where I see a clearing in the storm emerge. This is the space where I find the courage and hope that I need to keep moving forward.

Thank you for staying connected.

See you tomorrow.
