In times of tragedy or crisis, you can take care of the world by caring for your self; change in the world starts with each of us!   Feed you inner light and it can shine bright…maybe even illuminate others.

 

Some recommendations for supporting yourself during times of tragedy…

1 – Take care of yourself. Treat yourself gently and with respect, like you would treat a friend who was grieving.
2 – Don’t repeatedly check the news and social media.
3 – Acknowledge your feelings. Name them but you don’t need to explain them to yourself or anyone else.
4 – Talk to your friends and family or anyone who supports you.
5 – If you are a parent, utilize these great resources to talk to your children:

6 – Envision the ideal future that you wish for the world.
7 – Find peace in your own soul today (and every day) by counting your blessings/gratitude. Why is this important? In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
