Looking back, it was like a hint of what was to come on a bigger scale.
I can’t breathe...
George Floyd told us moments before his murder, “I can’t breathe,” unleashing the largest social justice response worldwide.
And a growing chorus has been pointing out that the Earth has been telling us for years, in countless ways, “I cannot breathe.” There is a growing understanding that our climate emergency, the pandemic, and those that are impacted by them the most, are all deeply interconnected.
In reflecting on this, I wonder…
Perhaps, we just all need to take a breath.
I have learned that gratitude and grieving can be great medicine that can support positive mental health & well being.
- Gratitude acknowledges all that supports us and is an invitation for more goodness in our lives.
- Grieving our losses can be key to letting go of the past, learning from it and creating space for the new.
What new awareness are you creating space for?
