A lot has happened in the world since I last wrote. It is hard to think of creativity when world events, national events, and personal events engage our hearts so strongly.
This day I wish you all peace, and time to reflect on what’s important in each of our roles in our daily life. Strengthening our inner selves requires creative choices in a challenging world.
Take time when you can to pull in, away from negativity and darkness and be thankful for those gifts you have in your life (people, the beauty of nature, home … ) and the gifts you have to share with others (expertise, strength, kindness … ). This gratitude is a positive choice and can give your mind and heart a respite from troubling events.
As a write this entry, I reflect on how events, positive and negative, trigger new creativity and ways to best respond to them … coping skills for ourselves, supportive skills for others … how we move forward together in the face of unforeseen events.
Wish you well. JNC
