A Simple Practice that Sparks Optimism

A Simple Practice that Sparks Optimism

Dear friends,

I know this time of year can bring up so many emotions, and with so much happening in the world around us it can be hard to find morsels of optimism and joy.

Personally, this year has been very heavy. I’ve experienced so much unexpected change and disappointment. I’ve felt angry, confused, and misunderstood. The happenings of the world have led me to feel helpless and hopeless.

When the drama of the internal world mixed with the trauma of the external combine, it’s easy to feel like there is no light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

This week I wanted to share with you my personal practice for managing these mounting feelings, and how I use this practice to keep me afloat in these stormy seasons.

I often think about the Blaise Pascal quote, “In difficult times carry something beautiful in your heart.”

This is the reminder that helps me maintain perspective and even find optimism when times are hard.

This practice ebbs and flows for me, just like with life. Sometimes the beautiful thought I hold in my heart is a tiny joy: a daily cup of coffee or my cat, Charlotte. Other times, I visualize in my mind all of the good that I am creating in my life, allowing myself to feel the feelings of those accomplishments, and relishing in the excitement of what is to come.

No matter what is happening in my life or the world around me, knowing that I cannot control any of it, it soothes my soul remembering that I can call forward the good that perseveres. I can reinforce in my mind that no feeling is every final, and that everything is always changing. I can encourage myself to always believe in the good things that have yet to happen, of the love I haven’t yet created, and the magic that life will present to me.

I hope that this simple, but meaningful practice can help you in the ways that it has helped me, and perhaps, be that life raft when battling the stormy seas.

xo, Michelle
