If you knew the truth about
The way I feel
The fear and doubt
You might find out I’m a little like you

— Lyrics from “Gotta Be Me” by Brenda MacIntyre

We’re all wandering around on this planet trying to do our best and we all have our own individual experience… and we are all connected! You’re not alone in any fear or doubt or anxiety or grief you feel. We are all having some kind of a human experience on the planet right now, so on some level we get each other and we are each other.

In other words, I’m a little like you and you’re a little like me.

The truth of what we’re feeling in any given moment is not usually what we share. We share bits of our lives that we’re ready to share, with people we feel safe with whom to share.

TRY THIS: The next time you notice yourself having a belief that you’re the only one in the room with fear and doubt – or whatever emotion – remind yourself it’s not just you. Remind yourself that you are HUMAN just like the rest of us. And. You are LOVE just like the rest of us.

Final thoughts: You are enough. Period. Being YOU as fully as possible? That’s where it’s at. The more you do that, the more of a difference you are making for yourself and for others, and the more you are aligned with higher frequencies, meaning more Joy, Laughter, Fun and Happiness, even in the midst of whatever else is going on.

Hope this helps. Please feel welcome to share it with friends you know who are experiencing grief, trauma, loss or chronic pain.

Love & Blessings,

Brenda MacIntyre, Medicine Song Woman
