The past few months have been difficult for many of us. In Canada we lived with pandemic restrictions, the weather was dark and cold, inflation soared and uncertainty was everywhere. My energy level and motivation seemed to disappear.
As someone who constantly walks her talk, I decided to explore these feelings and try to understand why I feel this way now when things from the outside are actually improving. I found my answers through journaling, time alone to reflect, and conversations with people close to me.
I suddenly understood that I had to completely and absolutely forgive myself. I took the time to embody this forgiveness and to speak more kindly to myself. It has been liberating.
From a place of kindness, forgiveness, and acceptance we can begin to see new opportunities, new motivation and new ideas flourishing. The present is lighter (even with its uncertainties and challenges) and the future is full of possibilities.
