It seems the universe keeps nudging us to remember who, what, where our priorities lie. For all our FL people: By all means, I hope you got prepared— Secure your outdoor belongings. Check in with your people and your neighbors. Evacuate if need be. Go through this checklist
https://www.stateofflorida.com/.../hurricane.../. But don’t forget to breathe. Peace lies in the space where we do the best we can while surrendering to the fact that some things are out of our control.
Keep in mind, when we’re faced with an emergency situation, we need our wits about us and it helps being at our healthiest. I know we tend to desire copious amounts of alcohol and sugary, starchy comfort foods when we’re worried, but stress that comes from impending danger already compromises our immune system and alcohol, sugar, and starches only lowers it more. So this is a good time to lean into nutritious foods and beverages.
I am sending out my strongest prayers for this storm to pitter out so that we may all come out of this as unscathed as possible.
May you and yours be safe and at peace! See you on the other side!
