Alicia’s take on living through times that look nothing like we expected? One. Reset. At. A. Time.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“We all thought this year was going to go differently than it has. Sometimes, it’s not about what you thought you wanted or wished for. You just have to stop and listen to what is needed and follow it. Y’all feel me??” — Alicia Keys
Who else breathes a sigh of relief when someone (anyone!) gets real about the monumental effort it’s taken to get through the past year with space for grace and resolve in our hearts? Taking things day by day isn’t the least of what we’re capable of; it’s the only thing we’re capable of. And, in times like this, it can take major effort.
Which brings us to the unspoken (and most powerful) part of the deal, which Alicia pointed out perfectly in this Instagram post during the summer of 2020. Holding steady within our spirits — putting intention behind our highest ideals, seeing beauty and value in others, and keeping our minds open, superficial noise and circumstances be damned — is what turns taking things day-by-day into an all-out superpower.
And we love the sound of that.
What expectations can you drop to make space for your inner visions instead?
