There are two ways I can handle this moment.
I can surrender to fear, letting it take me over, feed on my energy, and act through me. This might have me watching the election polls obsessively, somehow convincing myself that it matters whether I know the numbers. It might have me speaking harshly about people, dwelling on the future or the past, or listening judgmentally.
Or I can surrender to love, letting it act through me. This could look like:
What's the most loving choice right that we can make right now?
As a mom (to 2 teenage sons), wife, and person in the world, I have been on a long imperfect journey. I have made many mistakes, but with mindfulness, emotional reflection, and lots of support I have learned enormously from those mistakes.
