Vote Yes for compassion, care, and change

Tomorrow we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to vote to remove the Eighth Amendment from the Constitution. At this point, we have all seen the posters and viral videos; we have received leaflets; and had conversations with friends and strangers. Tomorrow, it will be time to vote. If you have not yet decided how you will vote, I urge you to vote Yes. Let me explain why.

'We need a more compassionate response. We need to repeal the Eighth'

Hildegarde Naughton is one of many Irish politicians who has been "on a journey" over the issue of abortion and the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution, and at the core of what has persuaded her to campaign for a Yes vote on May 25 is the idea of compassion.

Mindful self-compassion training

Our evolved brain is more concerned with our safety and obtaining resources than with our happiness. This can lead to a narrowing of our perception. For example, if while shopping you are received well in five shops, but the sales assistant in the sixth shop is unpleasant, what will you remember about your shopping trip later that evening, the five pleasant sales assistants or the unpleasant one?

Pain & Letting go...

What if, to be pain free means, to be free of pain both physically and emotionally. What if I said to live life without illness isn’t a quirk of faith or a chance, something which ‘good luck’ has fated us with, what if it were instead a conscious choice? This is something which I strongly believe; that all illness be it physical, mental or emotional is in a way some form of resistance to life and to what life wants or expects from me.

It was that all too familiar feeling in Croke Park last Sunday, when Maurice Deegan blew the full time whistle. While 'The Auld Triangle' drowned out the celebrations from the Hill and Dublin supporters around the ground, for us Mayo folk, we sat back and took stock of what had happened, just like we did in 89, 96, 97, 04, 06, 12, 13, and now once more in 2016. If you have not heard the last lamenting few minutes of Mid West Radio's commentary from Mike Finnerty and John Casey, it captures the feeling we all felt as well as anything could. "It's just not meant to be, it's just not meant to be for Mayo," was how Mike called it, before a few seconds of silence came from their microphones before he was able to try to put some sense on what happened. While when he could finally get some words in Casey emotionally adds "is there ever a God going to smile on us," and, "Ah give give us a break, give us a break for God's sake, that team deserve something."
