I did something this morning that terrified me. I made my plan of attack, gathered my protective gear, and went to the grocery store. Honestly, I couldn’t sleep last night because I was so scared.
The mood of fear constricts what’s possible. And I’ve adopted three practices that help me shift out of the fear mode.
Each of these shifts me out of the future and my acute awareness that I have no control over it, and brings me into now. Right now. Only now.
Turning my attention to the things in my life that I’m not taking for granted today brings me a sense of peace. Today, my gratitude list includes:
What are 5 things you’re grateful for today? Please let me know.
I can’t laugh and be scared simultaneously. I’m joking around with my husband and my friends (on the phone). Watching, listening and reading things that make me laugh (comedies, stand-up, podcasts, etc.).
What’s amusing in your world today?
Sing, dance, make music.
While some might find it overly cautious, we truly do need to plan for a few weeks of shelter-in-place. Depending on the laws the trips to the grocery store become fewer and farther in between. While I was successful in my grocery store trip which proved to be less scary than imagined, I'm also stocking up on Farm&Oven mini muffins. I know well enough that even in these times of self quarantine that my family will still avoid all things green. This is why I always have Farm&Oven on hand to know that I've snuck in over a 1/2 cup of veggies into each delicious soft-baked serving. To help you stock-up as well I'm offering 20% off all of our 20 and 30 packs. Simply use code STOCKUP at check-out.
In love, lightness and gratitude,
“Today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.” (Sanskrit proverb, Kalidasa, 5th century A.D.)

Patience, Persistence, and Play. Three words that can be applied to everything we do. Read what I’m focusing on this month and learn what grounds me every day. Hopefully it will help you, too!
