Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace-
I read lots of blog posts, talk daily with all sorts of inspired people from whom I learn so many thought-provoking things. Everything from how people ask for the time on the bus to how mediation is a remarkable tool in our daily lives—whether they are winning races or losing narrowly in a local 5k … This is just a part of what I do all week behind the scenes here at CultFit.
As I was wrapping up the post on Friday, I was suddenly galvanized by the reporting on one of most horrific stories any of us have ever encountered in our fleeting lives. The tiny, innocent school in Connecticut, where those elementary school children and several adults were shot to death this past Friday.
CultFit is normally meant to inform and entertain you about the world around us. On any given day here, CultFit is more about entertaining you and providing a glimpse behind the curtain. Although there are days, and this past Friday was one of them. When fulfilling this responsibility … Feels especially frivolous.
Today, I can’t bring myself to write a witty, meaningless post.
May this humble post serve as an expression of my sympathy for all of families involved in Connecticut who lost children and loved ones this past Friday. May you somehow find, in time: Strength, Peace and Serenity.
There are no words…
Absolutely heartbreaking… there truly are no words… my stomach is sick at the thought of the tragedy that has hurt so many people.
Thank you for commenting today, my mind is cluttered and unfocussed, unable to remain positive in such troubling times. I ask that you take care this evening and please be well.
Practice Stress/Practice Peace
This just made it on a note to self on my computer.
Cool … I find that practicing peace is a much better way to make it through the day.
Beautifully said. Thanks.
This was beautiful. Thank you for sharing this.
I work in a school district. It was very hard for parents and kids today. Very unsettling. God Bless our little angels and their families.
Yes-it’s very difficult to write at this time of tragedy………….
