I received Marci Shimoff’s newsletter in my mail today and had to share it with you. I’ll leave her to ‘speak’ to you as she did to me.
Here are some ways to turn losses into openings in your life:
2. Remember that you’re not alone-get support from those around you (not the misery-loves-company kind-the wise and loving kind!).
3. Take time to feel any fear or sadness. Don’t be afraid they’ll overwhelm you. Feel them fully and have a good cry, if needed. Then take a deep breath and go out and do something you love to do.
4. When feeling contracted, think of the word “soften.” Just that little reminder can make a hard place inside melt.
I feel a deep compassion these days, and I’m grateful for it. Let’s allow the changes we’re experiencing to “tenderize” our hearts-and welcome the sweetness that brings to every moment! This is how we can stay happy for no reason, no matter what.
