A few days ago, I did a post asking you all to tell me something wonderful, and then I sent out a newsletter because I wanted to check in with others and how they were feeling about the Ukraine crisis. I was feeling anxious and unsettled, so I sent virtual (((hugs))) to all.
Well, I wasn’t expecting the outpouring of such wonderful reciprocation from you all. I received notes and emails by the dozens.
Thank you. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
You know, it’s in times like this when we need to sometimes reach out to see if there’s anyone else out there feeling the same.
I was quick to learn that there are many who are also struggling with the guilt of being safe and all that it entails as being on the sidelines.
While we need to keep Ukraine in our thoughts, we still need to practice compassion at home and be kind to one another.
There is help on the ground for the Ukrainian people and we can see that the situation isn’t being ignored by governments around the world. There are a lot of people who are working to bring about a peaceful end to all of this.
We’re so far away that it’s difficult to imagine, but we can help with those in need closer to home… Whatever that may be. It could be as simple as a smile to lighten someone’s day, it could buying someone lunch, or keeping a positive attitude.
Whatever it looks like for you, I appreciate that. Know you’re not alone. Others nearby are feeling the same.
I feel blessed to have so many wonderful followers and readers. You really are the best! Stay safe.
Thanks for reading.
