Looking for that Silver Lining

I admit that some days are easier than others. Today is one of those days. I was talking with a mom this morning who has three teenagers in a small house with her husband. On top of that they are a mixed race. So they have been dealing with a lot of emotions. I asked her how things are going, fully expecting her to say the usual answer. It's hard, it's rough etc… But she did not. Her answer was that the family has never been closer. The kids are hanging out together and doing more things as a family than ever before. They have bonded. “I guess I’m seeing the silver lining.”

She is not the first parent that has shared those same thoughts with me. This “time out” has given families a chance to stop doing and start being.

Yesterday I was walking in NYC with my daughter Kara and she said to me “ I have to believe this is all happening for a reason.” This was music to my ears as I raised her with that same belief. We would often look back at bad things that happened and realize that in the end they actually were good.

I feel like I am a completely different person than I was before Covid 19. I never stopped moving, doing and accomplishing. I really never knew how to really relax and be in the moment. I practiced gratitude and positive thinking but now I feel it. When I hear a bird singing I am grateful in every cell of my body. I am grateful to be alive. I am grateful every day for the littlest things. I have broken a long held habit of watching the news. Now, instead I play music like Simon and Garfunkel and Cat Stevens. I think positively about the future and know this 5D world is going to be a whole lot nicer, kinder, loving and fun.

I really do believe it and feel it in my bones.

The clouds will pass, the sun will shine and we will be in a better world when all this has passed.
