Corona-19 has flipped the world upsidedown. It'll be a apart of your history - women's history - forever. Most people are scared...sheltering in place, keeping their distance from one another, living on FB and Instagram.
You have a choice this month - to see what is happening both globally and in your world - as devastation or opportunity, If you choose the latter - and I hope you do - you can emerge from this difficult time on the plus side.
FOCUS ON YOU
You know how you’re always so busy? If it isn’t some work thing, it’s a social something. You keep wanting to focus on you and your goals, but then you get distracted by something else or somebody else. But now that you’re in A mandatory deep pause...here’s you opportunity!
I remember Annie, a woman I talk about in Victorious Woman. The fun-loving sixty-something woman was diagnosed with cancer. The thing that would have jazzed her into fighting for her life was opening a bridal shop. When she told her spouse, kids, and friends, everyone laughed. SO, instead of designing a life she wanted, she went into the default position; she died.
On the other hand, Victorious Woman Pattie Painter, also in her sixties and diagnosed with multiple cancers, chose design. When she got well, she designed a new life as a wedding celebrant. She’s been performing weddings both locally and at different destinations for years...and having a wonderful time.
So what is it for you?
Have you been trying to design your own meditation practice? Start today with just five minutes. In two weeks you can build up to ten minutes...and in a month you’ll have designed a new healthy habit.
What do you want to do next month, next week, next year? What did you miss in the past that you want to do now? Is it a new skill or learning? What about that business you’ve always talked about? Or is there a fabulous trip (for next year...not now!)? Have you always wanted to visit the original seven wonders of the world or the NEW wonders, or the top ten National Parks in the US? Maybe you’ve dreamed of tossing a coin in Italy’s Trevi fountain, having dinner at the Eiffel Tower, seeing Stonehenge, or meditating with a yogi at a Himalayan spa.
This “deep pause” is giving you time to focus on what’s in your heart of hearts. Make the most of oit!
