A few nights ago, my daughter woke up with a bloody nose. Naturally, I woke up and leaped out of bed to help her. As we sat there on the bathroom floor holding tissues to her nose, I noticed I was drenched with sweat and short of breath. My adrenaline was pumping so fast. But here we were, on the other side of this heightened dramatic situation just holding each other and taking deep breaths to calm down.
She went back to bed peacefully like any princess would, but I lied awake thinking. I had this bazaar feeling I hadn’t had in a long time. Like I’d been here before. I don’t know. I brushed it off and kept going.
Then rioting the capital happened, and this shit show triggered that weird familiarity feeling once again. It had a name. Deja Vu.
Deja Vu – a feeling one has lived through this situation before…
Yep. That’s what I was feeling. From my daughters bloody noise to riots and protests, I’d definitely been here before and the anxiety I was feeling was from a deep rooted fear that history was about to repeat itself.
You see, I am not here to hash out details or talk politics with you. That’s not my style. I’m here to ask everyone, including myself to read the following quote very, very, carefully….
I went searching for wisdom and spiritual mantras after those events. I’m not going to lie. This one, it stopped me dead in my tracks.
We are at a crossroads. Life as we know it has changed. It is our duty to think critically about where we have been, where we have gone wrong, and willingly humble ourselves to the notion that so many of our former ways, ideologies, and mannerisms have not given us the harmonious existence we envisioned.
As we journey into 2021, I will focus my attention on correcting broken patterns and being more in tune with new and functional solutions I’ve yet to consider that may be on the horizon.
Tonight, I sat down to write with the sole purpose of inspiring my readers to get activated in self realization so your next move can be your most authentic and prosperous. Change is upon us. Let’s take the reins and try to be very deliberate in our next steps.
As we shift to the next chapter of life, let’s remember to stay grounded and resonate in a state of hope more than anything else. Be authentic. Be you. And speak your truths. Do so with grace and dignity. We have a future full of opportunity. Let’s remember this:
Set your intentions in a place of love and hope. I hope that when in a state of fear from Deja Vu you choose to reflect on the results of past situations that didn’t favor your highest good and do the things you didn’t have a chance to try before. That new angle could make all the difference, Daily Feelers.
Wishing you a safe, healthy, and loving new year.
