Practical Wisdom for women — How to Stop feeling defeated and move your life forward…

We are not the same. But we are.

By Michal Spiegelman

Two emails I received at the same time were exact opposites.

The first email said:
“It feels like the universe hates me. What a tough year. Everything good is gone.”

The second email said:
“I start my day with clear energy and light. I am blessed to have a strong spiritual connection. I share this light with others and do not feel drained. I am not succumbing to darkness. I am not exhausted. I am blessed.”

The two women were responding to a message I sent out about the need to let darkness and light coexist.

While some people have lost hope and are in a very dark place right now, other people have chosen to rise above the darkness. One woman shared that while 2020 has been the most challenging year ever for many people, it was the best year of her life.

The pandemic has affected each of us in different ways.

We are not the same.

Some of us suffer.

If you are someone­ who is suffering right now, I want to shine a light on you. My family and I are safe and healthy, but I know many people are sick or recovering from COVID-19. Many people in our community have lost loved ones to the virus. I am sending you love, healing, and light.

We are not the same.

Some of us sacrificed our lives to help others.

I also want to shine a light on the essential workers who have sacrificed time with their families and risked their own health to keep the rest of us safe, healthy, and maintaining a sense of normalcy. If you are one of them, I am sending you love and gratitude.

We are not the same.

Some of us experienced a lot of loss.

If you lost your job, the challenges you face are different from those who enjoy financial freedom. If you are a mom working from home while navigating homeschool, your challenges are different from those of a business owner with no kids. If you gave up your job so you could take care of your kids, your routine is different from someone who works outside of their home. I want to shine a light on you.  

We are not the same.

Some of us are doing very well.

If you had the tools, resources, and support to turn this challenging year into an opportunity, you might be in a good place right now. Maybe you were able to reconnect with your purpose, elevate your daily practices, contribute to others, or express your passion and creativity. Release any feelings of guilt you might have for not having it “as bad” as other people. The world needs lighthouses like you to shine the light.

We are not the same.
But we are.

We are all on a journey doing the best we can moment by moment.

We are all human and imperfect.

We all have our moments of falling apart, and then we pick up the pieces and rise.

We all experience opposing emotions: fear and peace, anger and love, despair, and hope.

We are not the same.
But we are.

We might feel like a “Debbie Downer” today and become an uplifter tomorrow.

We might experience moments of clarity, even though we live mostly in uncertainty.

We all have the ability to connect with our inner light and to welcome the divine light in.

We are beacons.
Beacons of Change.

We are not the same.
But we are.

    I am watching my sister slowly lose her life due to throat and tongue cancer. She is literally starving to death in front of my eyes while the cancer takes over her body. I also am in a very abusive 34 yr marriage and am trying to find a way out but have never been allowed to have a job or even be away from the house very long by myself. I have a friend that says I am his angel because when we met again after 34 yrs he was ready to end his life and had made some very self destructive choices and is serving time now for them. I spent a year getting to know him and he taught me not all men are horrible abusers. I prayed for that kind of person to come to me and now I’m waiting for him to comeback so I can live the rest of my life in peace. After being with my sister and come home I feel so sad and helpless and drained because there is not one thing I can do to help he with this horrible sickness.

    For me, this was the hardest year. I had just began working for myself then the virus hit. This really hurt my business. I also faced some of the worst battles, opposition, and people in my life this year. Just when I thought I could not endure anymore, I found a strength I never knew existed and by the grace of God, I’ve found a new path on my journey. I’ve come out of looking thru my eyes to looking thru God’s eyes. And now I want to live fully my purpose with this renewed vigor in life. I wish for others to find that same light on their journey.

      I personally am having trouble finding myself this year. I am a very positive person an I can usually take a negative an find something positive. I am alone, as to who I have as support. I have 1 very good friend. An 4 kids who dont understand me, an it sucks. I am a breast cancer survivor an of 10 yrs. But lost my mom dad an husband all to cancer.. it’s hard to feel everyone’s emotions or my deep emotions. But I also feel like I am in this crazy world for a reason. But I cant figure it out. I do have this strange attraction to people. They will tell me everything. I talk to lots an lots of people. Strangers that I feel comfortable with. An I help them or at least listen. I’m ready for something an it feels like I am supposed to be doing something. I just dont know what.
