Why are there no emotional emergency responders? When tragedies occur, people rush to the scene to ensure that your physical body stays alive at all costs. Others will ensure that no messes are left behind and no hazardous threats remain and law enforcement will arrive to ensure that any who have broken laws will be held responsible.
A young woman with a lot on her mind is distracted. She runs a red light and her car smashes into another. Her head has hit the windshield and broken glass has cut her skin. She is in shock. She's struggling to steady her breath, looking down at her body, holding her head, grasping at her cell phone to connect to someone who cares. Her eyes are darting all over the place. The horn of her car is still blaring in the background and she is in chaos alone, despite the fact that she is surrounded by many. The cars are irritably attempting to get through the intersection, unaware of a woman in vulnerable need. All they see is an obstruction in their path as they aim for their various destinations. The firemen and police have their jobs to do, so they don't even notice as she stumbles into traffic to take a picture of the wreckage in her fogged state of mind.
This young woman has a mother, but she is too panicked to be able to make contact with her. So there she cries on the side of the road, sad for the mess she's made. The busy city around her is blind to the emotional distress she is in. Are they too busy to notice? Is aiding a stranger in need not on their list of priorities? Maybe they just have no idea of how to even start such an action. So again I ask, why are there no emotional emergency responders?
I am so many things...a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and neighbor. I am a photographer, a birth doula, and an intuitive guidance coach. I am a consumer and an entreprenuer. I am a heARTIST creating visions of love and beauty through words, photographs, and heartfelt interactions and life experiences. I am a helper, an advocate for our most precious resource (our children), a supportive heart radiating, a woman who is teaching while she still attending the school of life and learning everyday. I feel...I cry, I smile, I yell, I laugh, I fear, I dance, I hide, I share, I shine so brightly...all in the many breaths of my days. I am a simply complex human being always seeking to live a life based in love and following my heART and soul's desire for expression and celebration. The moments when I recognize the miracle that is existing, breathing, and being surrounded by so many spirits and experiences to love and be grateful for are the ones I hold dear.
