In light of the recent election, I felt the need to hold off on the article I had planned to write and instead share a few thoughts.
My heart is feeling sad today. And I wanted to reach out and say, in case you needed to hear it, that however you are feeling post-election is 100% ok. There is no need to try to fix or change it.
As I grapple with the realities of what this election will mean, I’m asking myself, what can I do to make this world a kinder, safer, more loving place? Because my own choices and actions are literally the only thing I have control over. And the truth is, there are a lot of things that I can do. In my personal life, I can be loving to those I come into contact with. I can stand up for those most vulnerable in our society. I can donate money, be politically active, hold politicians accountable, be a part of dialogue and truly listen to those I disagree with. But I’m particularly excited about how I can use my work to make the world a better place. Through making my practice of medicine an act of love, I support people on their healing journey, and as I’ve written on the home page of my website, part of my core philosophy is that human beings become kinder, more generous, more whole people when they feel healthy and taken care of.
So I invite you to ask yourself, what can you do to make this world a better place, because this country needs you to step into your power from a place of greatest love. If I can support you in your health along the way, please know that I am here.
