“Made you stop, made you stare… made you see…??”
Some people are calling the Coronavirus episode a “Time Pause”. Does it feel like this to you?
So many people are facing new and unprecedented challenges in all areas of their lives right now.
How are YOU managing and facing up to the change?
As we get older, we can be less adaptable, less willing to alter our habits and beliefs. This can make a big difference to how we feel and how much we get out life, how we manage, our emotional and mental well-being too.
- We can LEARN for it
- We can GROW as a result
- We can ADAPT to new circumstances OR
- We can Shrink and cower with fear
- We can learn to stay safe at all costs (but have no plan to do this apart from #StayHome)
- We can try to return to when everything was familiar, like “before”.
In short – we can give up on our lives, diminish ourselves, become VICTIMS, regress etc. But… does that seem to be a good idea?
Which do YOU choose?
Which choice did you make?
HOW does this make you feel?
Are you excited to create something new – or terrified to try?
Whatever you decide is fine – but it will bring VERY DIFFERENT results – so be careful what you wish for!
Taking the time to put the past into the past is always worthwhile, even if it can be scary. Why? Because what opens up is truly unknown, a surprise, a wide open space – ready for your inventions!
Are you up for discovering what this is with me?
If so – let’s start with putting the past behind us… join me on a live workshop on Weds 22nd April 2020.
