I dedicate this to all my sisters in the world that are struggling at this time with the many issues of just living.
We are in a global pandemic, and there are vast, innumerable challenges that we face.
This is a reminder to stay positive. Because negativity will rear its ugly head given the opportunity.
"Don't go down that rabbit hole", is a phrase affectionately used to warn someone from going in an unhealthy direction.
Like, "check yourself before you wreck yourself."
We are all figuratively on a surface with the sun shining.
We are also dancing around a deep, dark rabbit hole.
Shout down and listen to the empty echo...echo...echo...
Pour some wine down the hole in tribute to those that never climbed back up.
Reach up and thank the sun rays as they cement you to the earth's surface.
The sun rays give you strength. The sun rays give you joy.
The rabbit hole is deep, dark, vast and unforgiving.
Once you go down the rabbit hole there's no guarantee of coming back up.
No, it's not death. But it can lead you "there". And it can be hell being there.
What is the, deep dark rabbit hole?
It's the negative aspects that pull us down into itself with the sole purpose of stealing our joy.
These negative aspects come in many forms, so just to simplify I call it the deep, dark rabbit hole.
It can be anger, depression, self loathing, impatience, combativeness, sabotage to name a few examples.
The fundamental characteristic is that the visit down the rabbit hole is often our choice.
We can choose negativity and give it life. If you give it life, you give it your life.
Or, we can choose positivity, even though it requires hard work to keep it.
Negatively is always and forever present. But you don't have to be its dance partner.
Acknowledge its presence, but don't embrace it.
Many circumstances are not our choice. And many are.
Self bondage of our own creation and manifestation is a choice.
Enjoy the dance around the edge of the deep, dark hole.
But It's always best to keep your distance.
Stay away from the edge if you feel temptation and vulnerability.
Because the gravity will pull you in and spin you out of control.
If you have joy, protect it like it's more important than food.
If you need help, reach for it until someone answers.
Confetti and balloons will not always be falling out of the sky.
But choose positivity. Choose happiness. Choose to protect your joy.
