I’ve been crying, I’ve had anxiety, worry, anger, frustration, sadness, you name the negative feelings and I’ve felt them this week. I’ve been called things I don’t even want to repeat because I believe in equality, and I’m a huge fan of Martin Luther King Jr.’s philosophy.
I’m criticized because I say things like, “violence doesn’t solve violence.”
Or, “We don’t live in a ‘this or that’ world, we live in a ‘this AND that’ world. But, we cannot accept all our unique features that make up this beautiful planet.”
I felt shame and guilt for publishing my latest podcast episode earlier this week. While it was recorded around the second week of May discussing how to maintain your alignment during fearful and stressful times, a lot in the world has changed since then.
It went from solely worrying about the effects of the pandemic, to now worrying about it AND the inclusion and safety for ourselves and the people we love. The United States is in turmoil and I really don’t know what I can say or do to fix it. I am hurting and I’m scared for everyone. And yet, I am SO THANKFUL other countries in our amazing world are coming together to support love and equality for people of color.
I just want you to know I’m thinking about all of you and I hope you stay safe and healthy during COVID-19 and these challenging times. Always believe in yourself and the power that is within you. Let’s come together and support each other, please.
I will never back down for trying to promote peace and love for everyone.
You are amazing, never forget this.
