224 Addressing the New Paradigm

If there is anything worth doing, it is addressing the new paradigm, meeting the year in Grace, with Grace, and merging our days with the goal of that which is so much mightier, the I Am.

This might be a two sentence entry.  That would be a first!

Ask for help.

Find Gratitude.

Although either of those taken alone, and done daily, would guarantee an elevated journey through 2021, doing both in whatever way the Spirit moves you, and continuing through each day of the year, will elevate us all.  Make it contagious.  Share with those who surround you.  And then NOTICE the shifts.

When I “ask for help”, I try to tune in beforehand.  But honestly, asking for help can come from desperation.  It might be heard as a scream!  “I can’t do this, I can’t do it anymore, I can’t do this alone, I need HELP!”  However you access God/Spirit/the Eternal, It hears you.  It is there for you, and It is waiting for your acknowledgement.  Life is easier with some assistance.  Eternal help is the epitome.

And finding gratitude is the perfect partner.  In sickness, depression, and hard moments, gratitude is something I must teach myself to do.  It can feel impossible and can come up as more of a comparison than a pure distinction.  I am grateful to be able to… walk, have food, live in a warm home, breathe this breath.  It can feel minimal, like grasping at straws.  Just grasp.

Or, it can come in purely, like, I am grateful for the glistening water on the maple outside the window.  I am so thankful to live with the people I love.  I am warm and well.  I am writing, doing something that I adore.  


However it comes for you is the right way.  Write it down.  Say it out loud.  Catch negative thoughts, and switch to thoughts of gratitude.


A New Year’s Resolution?  Two parts?  Can we do this throughout 2021, bring ourselves back to the saving graces for all of humanity? If there is anything worth doing, it is addressing the new paradigm, meeting the year in Grace, with Grace, and merging our days with the goal of that which is so much mightier, the I Am.
