Wow, 2020 has so far been something else. Right?
We are being forced to take a deep hard look at ourselves, our actions, our biases and our tolerance.
Change is being forced upon us whether we like it or not. Change by definition means to make or become something different.
The Universe certainly wants our attention. As one of my clients said about being forced to make a change, “the Universe whacked me upside the head.”
Do you feel that way too?
Firstly, the COVID 19 global pandemic has forced us to take a pause and take a long hard look at how we are doing things.
We have had to re-examine how we work and our work culture of going into the office or still being productive while working from home.
We have had to re-examine our poor treatment of the climate, of each other, and of animals. I wrote a few weeks ago about looking at the “flip side of things” because there is always light in the darkness and good to found in difficult situations.
For example, more families have deepened their connections, there is more community spirit with neighbours helping neighbours and strangers, there is greater generosity and kindness, there is greater air quality with less pollution, and more.
Secondly, the inhumane and injustice death of George Floyd’s has ignited global frustration, anger and outrage regarding racism. It is now enough. We must do our part to stop racism.
Each of us has been touched by this and moved to speak out, take action in our own way and denounce the underbelly of racism, hatred and cowardice.
There is wisdom in understanding that before things can get better, it sometimes has to get worse. Humanity is on the brink of lasting change, so let’s make certain that it is good change.
I also wrote about adapting to change a few weeks ago where I mentioned that perhaps these momentous challenges are a “blessing in disguise”.
Blessings in disguise can come in many forms, including a set back turned opportunity to an awakening.
So, what has changed for you?
Are you using this time of pause to re-examine your life, relationships, purpose, business, income and circumstances?
Are you taking advantage of the pause?
