Intentionally creating Light
The spheres we live in just got smaller. And the challenge is: how can you make your "little corner of the world" a better place to be? Starting with family, your neighborhood, your society, your country, the world? Here are some ideas to get started ...
Help a Neighbor
Supermarket "runs" don't exist right now. They have become "journies." When you're taking that trip to the store, what can you pick up to help your elderly neighbors? Be sure to follow all hygiene and safety precautions.
Make a list of people you know who might be especially suffering right now - they're lonely, ill, confused, or live in a difficult situation. Set aside times to do "call-ins" and check on them.
Who doesn't love surprises? Think about how you can bring some sunshine to your family at home or your neighbors - perhaps it's leaving a spring plant on the stoop or putting a note in the mailbox, or ordering a special delivery. Be sure to always use proper health and hygiene precautions.
Share your talents with your neighbors and bring smiles to their faces. Step onto your porch or throw open your windows and let it rip! Invite your neighbors to listen from their own homes.
Start an on-line card sending campaign to your friends and loved ones far away ... and those close to home!
Give a message of hope to the outside world by hanging inspirational messages on banners outside of your home or on signs in your yard.
This difficult time has reminded so many of the value of family and friends. Take the time to reach out to people you've been meaning to. Maybe it's time to forgive someone. Or to forgive yourself.
Don't stop Socializing
Take it digital! Host a tea party, cocktail hour or lunch chat with your friends and family on-line.
