Making a Difference - The Ripple Effect
Tuesday, I voted early. One of 75 million people and going strong, with less than one week until election day. Unprecedented numbers, unprecedented times. I felt good casting my vote and having a voice. Being in community with my fellow voters in our masks and practicing social distancing. Being helped by volunteers who made sure everything was safe, understandable, and running smoothly. I was proud to be a part of something so much bigger than myself. And impressed with people's commitment to showing up for what they believe in. We live in a historical time, coping with heightened stress due to a volatile political environment and a pandemic. It's a time where we need to take care of ourselves and our well-being more than ever. Whether or not there is a mandatory lockdown or shelter-in-place, part of self-care is taking care of our home that supports and nurtures us. With that in mind, I thought it was worth re-sharing a conversation I had with Tricia Brouk on The Big Talk podcast about this, entitled, It Just Takes One Person, recorded this past March at the beginning of the lockdown, where we speak about many things, including:
Tips to make your space more inviting
How cleaning with intention can help heal the world
The practice of gratitude within difficult times
It does take just one person to make a difference. It's the ripple effect. One person doing one thing, like doing dishes with intention, can make a difference in the world.
Take a listen and feel free to share any insights. I would love to hear from you!
Everyday Feng Shui. It's all right here.
With love and blessings, Kate
