A Glimmer

Glimmer alert! This post mentions

soft spring rains

puppy dog noses

long walks on warm evenings with a loved one

the smell of jasmine on the night breeze

waking up without an alarm

the sound of running water in a small stream

the smile of a stranger

the first cup of tea of your day

the feeling of fresh clothing on your skin

starlight reflected in a lake

your best friends' voice on the phone

I see trigger alerts warning of the negative feelings a topic might engender is so many places. Yet we are surrounded by glimmers - "glimmers" refers to small moments when our biology is in a place of connection or regulation, which cues our nervous system to feel safe or calm

There is a great deal written about our "getting what we focus on" and if that is true - do you want to focus on triggers or glimmers? I don't actually think it's a straight up choice, but just the awareness that the opposite of triggers are out there and accessing them can help our self regulation.... well, it gives me a glimmer of hope!
