Practice 26: It’s a New Day and I am Alive!
I honor my dread, sadness, fear, and hurt.
With no disrespect to any of my pain, I actively reach for joy and aliveness in myself.
The intention of my joy is not to deny the difficulties, it’s not to pretend to myself or anyone else that things are just easy and chill.
Instead, my intention is to claim life in the midst of all of the struggles that are there inside me, outside of me and around me.
Holding pain in one hand and joy in the other
I embrace the fact that I am alive
