How are you feeling? These days that’s a very difficult question to answer! For most of us, myself included, the question will have a different answer today than it did yesterday, and different again tomorrow. Even more, the answer will probably be different hour by hour, or even minute by minute, as we all learn to ride this rollercoaster of emotions.
 
I started the ‘pandemic journey’ feeling at peace with the world, as though everything had slowed down, I’d got off the merry-go-round and finally had a chance to breathe. That feeling actually lasted for quite a long time, perhaps a few weeks or more, I can’t remember. But since those glory days, I’ve gone from one end of the spectrum of emotions to the other – a sense of deep calm to high anxiety, happiness, anger, euphoria, tears, laughter, overwhelming fear… the list goes on.
 
And do you know what? I am LOVING it! Yes, really. Not loving the hard parts, that’s for sure, but loving where it’s taking me.
 
This time out of ‘normality’ has given me the opportunity to really feel into each and every emotion that comes up. Sometimes it hasn’t been a pretty sight, I never could cry without looking like someone had smacked me in the face! But it has been, and continues to be, a hugely rewarding experience.
 
For the first time in our adult lives we have been given the opportunity to go D E E P. We have the time to really explore each and every feeling that comes up for us, no matter how painful. Instead of having to bury our emotions because we’re so busy running here, there and everywhere, we can, if we choose, sit with the feelings for as long as it takes to understand what it is we need to do to heal ourselves. This could be minutes, hours and sometimes even days.
 
It’s not easy, it hurts beyond hurt as these gut-wrenching, heart-breaking and sometimes frightening emotions come to the surface. Our natural inclination is to bury them in being busy, drinking alcohol, going into denial, whatever our addiction to pain is. But if we sit with it, go deep and really allow ourselves to unravel what it is our heart needs to have to heal, I promise we will never, ever look back.
 
The healing won’t happen overnight, it takes time and courage. But we have the time, it’s a gift we’ve been given whether we wanted it or not and we can build the courage. It is SO worth it, I promise!
 
This is an opportunity to change your life, your future, into something you’ve only ever dreamed of! Let’s do this, together.
