Everything is uncertain. We hear everyone saying “during these uncertain times . . . “.  When you think about it, everything is always uncertain even if we think the light will always go on when we flip the switch, or someone will call, or a check will come when expected. The level of uncertainty right now, however, seems to be unprecedented. If we could only be sure one way or another, we could deal with it. With this heightened uncertainty comes anxiety which takes form in one way or another. For some, it is prevalent and evident. In others, it is a little hidden and underlying. In either case, we shouldn’t ignore it. How to deal with it? Here are some tools that can help.

Each day brings a forth a new thought, subject, theme in our lives. Waking up can be blissful and at other times rather difficult depending on your current situation. Yesterday, I wanted to write all about gratitude and how it promotes a feeling of joy and happiness.  Waking up every day to simply saying thank you. It’s a nice way to start the day.

 Rumi the medieval poet wrote, “What you seek is seeking you.” I think of this as I sit each morning. What is it I would like to embody today? What is my intention as I walk through my day?

We often fail to know our hidden centers and so we live and die without knowing who we really are. Have you ever looked into the mirror and asked yourself, “who am I?”
