It’s been a bit of a doozy of a couple of months. Many, many highs, and many lows. Not a whole lot in the middle. But, y’know. I can take it. And all those highs are so, so gooooooooood. The lows are inconsequential, right? And besides, I’m tough and I’m softly malleable. I’m loved. I’m well-supported. I know what to ask for. I receive well. So, y’know, I’m good. Except, I haven’t really felt good.
So when an “energy guy” came highly recommended by two friends I trust with all I have, I listened.
And so did he. Though before he could listen, he needed to clear some profound exhaustion that I didn’t know existed. Before he spoke to a profound sadness that I didn’t know existed.
I’ll be honest that there’s is a part of me that wasn’t 100% convinced. I mean, we’re all carrying a little tired and a little sad, non? Part of the light and dark of life that makes it so, erm, rich, right? And then, I took a look at some pictures that were taken of me earlier in the day. There was a void in my eyes that I haven’t ever, EVER seen. And it scared the HELL out of me.
How long have I been sad? And then this:: What right do I have to be sad? I am so bloody fortunate and grateful and lucky and blessed and, and, and...

Perhaps the reason for the long dispute over the source of the adage: “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle” is due to the fact that it’s incomplete.
Perhaps it needs to be updated.
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle they might not even know they’re fighting.
Once I saw that I was IN a battle, I did what I do best, surrendered to the wisdom of some of my nearest and dearest and asked::
I could use your honest loving. Have you been receiving me as sad lately?
Julie Daley spoke up first, within minutes. yes. I will tell you. but I'd rather do it on skype, with you, not here.
As ever, she gave me a soft place to land. She gave me this question:: “what do you trust in when everything is pulled out from under you?”
That my light is abundant, was my answer.
Julie Daley does deep, powerful and transformative work. She can hold your tears. She has no fear of snot (trust me on that one). She can hold your power. And her Becoming a Force of Nature program registration starts now. This is not an affiliate link. This is a you-need-to-know-her-power link. You can take it. You are a force of nature.
And so am I. Whether I’m sad or otherwise. Up or down. I am a force of nature.
