New Year Blues? Compassionate Shifts & Support

Let’s be compassionate with ourselves this year and in this new year.

If you are living with illness or care for someone who is, the time of year when everyone is making big plans and dreams can be especially tough.

What if those things aren’t available to or realistic for you?

Can you still be happy?

Can you still find joyful moments in difficulty?

Are you being left out or left behind in life?

I believe that kindness, joyful moments, peacefulness and support can be available for us all. I believe not joining in with the push for ‘all new you in 2017’ doesn’t mean you aren’t living…

Maybe you are really and truly living, you aren’t making sweeping pronouncements, you are really alive (even if you are near death), because you are with the very small moments, in contact, present. You notice eating, the effort it takes, the effect it has, you care when someone sends you a card, letter of gift LINK, you hold someone’s hand, or enjoy a (rare) smile. What if you, of everyone, are truly close to what really matters, to what is really real, in this business of being human?

Instead of judgements and invocations to change and be ‘better’, what would happen if we enjoyed kindness from ourselves and the media we are consuming?
