Day 3: Election Day: Dance with it

On edge. But okay. 

I picked cards again today.

Yesterday I was feeling scared, nervous, anxious, and worried. 

Today I’m feeling concerned, but optimistic. And also hopeful, and also grateful for what I have. I’m feeling calmly hopeful. 

And also a little scared and terrified. 

I love Elizabeth Gilbert. On her Instagram today she told a great story about how she and Raya were praying on Election night ’16 after it was apparent Trump had won. 

Raya looked up and said to God something like, “Yeah, buddy? You want to give me both cancer and Trump? Okay, let’s dance!”

My brain shifted into a fantastic reframe when I heard this. Dancing with reality? Why not?

 Not just stoically enduring it, or even fighting it. Dancing with it. Yeah, that’s what I want to do. 

I have to learn to dance with whatever energy pattern is showing up for me in any moment.

I have to learn to harness it and direct it into my projects and my daily activities. 

And the more energy I have at my disposal, then the more effectively I can deploy it to make my life better, as well as the lives of the people around me.

I get energy and can stockpile reserves by meditating and doing some yoga daily. And reading. And writing. And cooking. And walking Stellabella. 

So that’s how I’m going to dance.
