In Times of Anxiety

In Times of Anxiety

My mind reels and spins. What do I need to get done today? Why is my son having these breakdowns? Is the money ok? How much energy do I have? Is it enough? There is a tightness in my chest and my pulse is rising...Wait. I don’t want to live this way. Where is the peace and the joy? I think I had it last week, but suddenly it’s gone, and I haven’t found it for days. 

A Meditation on Acceptance

A Meditation on Acceptance

Even after all the years of illness, one of my biggest emotional challenges is living in acceptance. I wrote the following meditation/prayer and I use it to center myself at the beginning of a day or a week. It addresses all of my biggest emotional buttons on this topic, but feel free to copy it and edit it to include the truths and perspectives you need to accept where you are today.
