Imagine its December 31, 2020. When you look back over the year, what do you want to remember? Will we continue to live in the past wanting what was, used to be or in the future still creating from the past, what we know?
Will you recall all the challenges and struggles in which there are (and will be) plenty and re-live the pain like you’ve always done? OR is it possible like this video you will remember those challenges, and instead discover you knowingly or unknowingly created a new norm for yourself and your family (friends are families we choose)? Did you discover how to play again, inexpensively or free? Did you take time to lay back and look at the clouds or stars and remember simpler times? Did you discover an artistic side to yourself that you had forgotten? Might you have learned how to cook...again...or for the first time? Did you take time to learn something new either about the world with a TED talk or documentaries? Did you take an online class with others? Did you figure out your gifts and come up with a way to give back that served your soul? Did you learn how to laugh again at something simple? Did you learn to cry with your children or loved ones? Did you go within and learn how to quiet your thoughts or sooth yourself like we had to learn to do when we were children? Did you reconnect with your children who may be young adults now? Did you learn tolerance for yourself and others? Did you discover how to love yourself so you can love others?
This global experience is being felt around the world and in many different ways.
So, I ask you…
What are you doing with the rest of 2020? I understand one-day-at-a-time is more important now than maybe any other time in your life. Yet, if you do something different, learn something new, experiment with a new idea, and no matter how small what will you say about yourself and how you thrived through this time? Hindsight is 2020!
