Connect to Your Inner Sunshine In Stressful Times

Living in the northern tier of our country, you may understand just how much sunshine can really make a difference on the tempo of your day. This time of year not only is the amount of daylight shrinking, but often the cloud cover is consistent and gloomy. Along with the overcast weather there is a prevailing sense of pressure and uncertainty intertwined with the telling and retelling of a darker perspective. We are being twisted by the stress that comes with this cycle. This can become transparent to those around us, and it’s why we need one another.

When the going gets rough — human beings too often resist creativity. 

Creativity is a gift and a resource that is available to us every day. We can call upon our “inner sunshine” at any time. Our creativity will lead us forward especially in uncertain times. It holds power for renewing our trust and giving us authentic strength.

Choosing to connect with our creativity often begins with wrestling around in the dark with one’s fears. Fears may distract us for a while, yet even these same fears can bring us back to what truly matters. And in the end — they return us to our values. Our values help us to keep things simple.

Today, focus on your values by sharing and connecting with love, kindness, and growth. Stretch beyond the boundaries of your imagination to take action. And may you find ease within your “inner sunshine” and all that you want to create.

Energize your values, vision and vitality with Promoting Brilliance.
