STAY WHERE YOU ARE
Well it’s been another week and a lot of us are wondering when it will end.
We’re anxious, impatient and stir crazy, quite frankly.
We desperately want to know when the virus will go away so that life can return to normal and we can feel better again.
And it's totally normal to feel this way.
Our human brains want to predict the future to feel certain and in control.
But the future is not predictable in this case.
Focusing on things that are unpredictable will never give you relief because it’s not within your control.
You just end up feeling even more out of control and uncomfortable.
The truth is, you just want to get to the predicted future so that you can feel some peace and relief.
But here’s the thing: you don’t have to wait until the future to feel better.
The relief that you are seeking is available to you right now.
Because your thoughts cause your feelings.
You are in control of how you think and feel about your current circumstance and how you experience it.
And if you’re only focused on the future, you're missing the point.
The process is what really matters.
It’s where you will find the relief and peace that you are longing for.
In noticing the internal growth and who you are becoming along the way.
Developing compassion for your humanness.
Your expanded ability to feel vulnerable and experience discomfort.
Experiencing a deeper connection with others.
Embracing uncertainty and living more presently.
The reality is this situation may last for a while.
This is the part where life is uncertain and chaotic.
At some point in the future, it will be the part where things settled and there was more certainty.
Stay where you are.
Deliberately decide how you want to think and feel in this part of your life.
What thoughts would you need to think to feel that way? What thoughts would you need to let go of?
If this resonates with you and you’d like some support in managing your thoughts and feelings so that you can experience more ease and joy right now, I’d love to help.
