As the world continues to be in need of an epi pen for the soul, we persevere.
Really interested in using this experience we signed up for as the impetus for learning how to become stronger, more resilient – capable of handling the intensity of experiences we’re being given to work through. Cuz they are plentiful. Even grocery shopping is a lesson in resiliency these days (Eggs are the new toilet paper people.)
That said, I’ve been trying the Wim Hof Method lately and really appreciating the impact it’s made on my mental and physical health.
I was never one to go willingly into the cold. I’ve long felt I belong on a beach. But I’m really loving the effects of a 30 second cold shower + Wim’s breathing techniques.
I went out into the world yesterday & felt as though my capacity to handle the crazy had risen to a new level. I still felt uncomfortable around some extreme fear-ism at the shops. But I didn’t waiver, didn’t RE-act – didn’t repeat or contribute to the fearfulness a few people were offering. I stood strong in what I know to be true, for me, and breathed through the attempted energetic bitch slap.
Jokes aside (even though jokes are so necessary right now) I want to contribute something helpful to the world at this time. And I believe that starts with bolstering my capacity to handle the intensity, so I’m not walking around, flinging fears & my own reactivated wounding at everyone I come into contact with. Energy is like that, after all.
Into the cold I go. ❄️
