Grace in Chaos: Tools for Emotional Resilience

Earlier this year, as I was gathering ideas and thoughts to share with you on an prior blog, I received an urgent text from our son, who, like many, was working from home. He and his family live 1000 kilometers away.

Sienna's artworkSienna, our 6-year-old granddaughter, missed us and needed to chat. Well, I must confess, that this was way more important than writing the blog.

So, connected by Skype, Sienna and I explored all her latest art work, played in her little tent, inspected her tidy toy area, arranged for a recipe swap with Mommy, pretended to be dizzy as she rotated the phone around in circles, inspected the garden in the back yard and planned baking cookies with Daddy for tomorrow.

We visit as often as we can, but the current health restrictions have made that more of a challenge, so we don’t get to see her in person as often as we would like. To be honest, I had been missing my beautiful little grandchildren and my family and this call warmed my heart in ways nothing else can. And it brought me back to love and grace.

Grace is defined as “simple elegance.” In times of great chaos, grace has a powerful impact.

Grace is one of those things that can certainly appear spontaneously. However, when you create fertile soil, seeds of grace will bring you much comfort, strength and sustenance.

How do we create this soil for grace when the whole world is in turmoil?

It is the nutrients in fertile soil that nourish seeds into healthy growth.

In times of great challenge it is important to gather many ways to nourish yourself. Here are some of my favorite that help me to keep my centre and open the door to grace.

Health Tip of the Month

October 10 is World Mental Health Day

You can’t see it, but for millions of Canadians, it’s an everyday reality – an invisible disability!

Depression is a common mental health condition. For some people depression is mild and short-lived; for others, it is more severe and longer-term. Some people are affected only once; others more than once.

First, know the signs:

  • loss of energy;
  • change in appetite;
  • sleeping more or less;
  • anxiety;
  • reduced concentration;
  • indecisiveness;
  • restlessness;
  • feelings of worthlessness,
  • guilt, or hopelessness;
  • thoughts of self-harm or suicide.

There is help.

  • Talk to someone you trust about your feelings – most people find that talking to someone who cares about them helps.
  • Seek professional help – your local health-care worker or doctor is a good place to start.
  • Stay connected with friends and family.
  • If you feel suicidal, contact someone you trust for help, or ring the emergency services.

This Month’s Gift

Gratitude Journal

As we approach Thanksgiving, it is a good time to remember those things that we are most grateful for – our families, our home, our close friends, and so much more.

A guiding principle of the Emergent WorkForce™ program
is to raise the collective (vibrational) energy such that each person is in the right space and the right mindset to seek their highest potential.

Much of our angst, our negativity, depression, and even much of our own self esteem, comes from our perceptions. It’s very easy to cling to the negative, while setting aside all the positives that influence us every day.

The simple act of gratitude is often all it takes to restore a positive mindset.

Each day, find at least one thing (many of you will find more – even a lot more) for which you are grateful. Record your thoughts in the Gratitude Journal.
