Urgent Joy - ⚡️Kristen Kalp

Urgent Joy

CONFESSION: I have never been more scared of an election outcome than I am of the one happening next Tuesday.

ADDITIONAL CONFESSION: No matter what happens, my response will be based in joy.

Not because I’m a Little Miss Happy Karen Living In Oblivion, but because I’ve learned to orient my life around what keeps my soul alive.  (Slowly and painstakingly, as a result of 18+ years of living with chronic depression, lest you think what follows is flippant or frivilous.)

Urgent Joy will help keep your soul alive.  Please listen sooner rather than later.

Asshole brain will naturally say ‘life is over, why even try,’ and encourage you to give up in countless ways when you face a challenging situation — for example, the further grip of Trump’s fascism descending on the U.S..

Urgent Joy will help you center your life around all that is truly life-giving so that you have access to maximum human functioning — heart, mind, body, and spirit.

Asshole brain will suggest that the solution to any problem is Netflix, a can of Pringles, and doomscrolling until 2 a.m.

Urgent Joy will help you remember the practices, supports, allies, humans, and trusted guides who can help you cope with WHATEVER happens next.

YUP that worksheet is handmade and slightly janky — AND it’s effective AF. 😉
