We don’t know about you, but there are days a sense of peace seems hard come by in this current season!
In last week’s All Stitched Up! HERE, we shared Elizabeth Gilbert’s ‘pause’ as she encouraged us to name five things we can see, four things we can hear, three things we can feel, two things we can smell and one thing we can taste as a way to ground ourselves in the present moment.
This week we’re pausing again as we pursue peace amidst the hustle and bustle that is swirling around us the world over.
In a recent email, Grit & Virtue encouraged us to pause and breathe deeply, to inhale, exhale and repeat as often as needed. They reminded us that whilst we need to stay informed of, and ensure we’re prepared for, the situation before us we can’t let the storm overwhelm and overtake us.
They encouraged us to let go of the things we can’t control and reminded us that it will get better.
We will become acquainted with our new rhythms and routines but need to give ourselves grace and space as it may take some time before we find our new normal.
Whilst easier said than done, we’re determined to pause and breathe, reminding ourselves that we’re all in this together and as long we choose to embrace hope and love, peace will eventually follow.
