Feeding Our Souls

In our full day-to-day, one-day-at-a-time lives, how do we hold everything together and keep an attitude of lightness and also hold the fear and worry that comes from being a food allergy parent?

How do we hold the whole thing, and just be real, and leave enough space, awareness and mindfulness for all of it—the good, the bad and the ugly—and somehow find a rhythm that keeps us on a centered path?

I’ve been working on it for years, and I haven’t completely figured it out, but I am living with much more joy than ever before.

I work to really see other people and to let them see me. That’s what keeps me in connection with my world. And I choose the energy I want to be around…the people, places and things that feed my light soul. Because positive energy fills it, and contagious negative energy depletes it. Deciding what we’re going to let into our life is the only way to deal with the hugeness of it.

We know we can’t keep them safe without being fully awake. We can’t keep them safe without beingmindful. We can’t keep them safe without being compassionate. And if we can spread these out to other aspects of our lives, we can walk a spiritual path with our food allergy children. It’s an invitation to become far better than if it had never happened. Far more compassionate, far more aware. Itforces mindfulness.

What are the things you do to feed your soul? Which people, places and things feed it and enable you to keep a really good balance?

We can offer a safe, loving space for each other so that we can then heal and fully offer the space for the children who need us. Belonging means not feeling isolated with the truth. It means knowing there are other hearts that can hold us. It’s an invitation to not be alone. That’s where the strength comes from to carry on…from each other’s courage, from each other’s vulnerability.

We are creating communities of care around these kids. There are so many doctors, activists, parents and incredible souls who choose to serve and love so that every child has a chance to be happy and healthy. And I am so very grateful to be a part of it.
