A month ago I never would’ve imagined that the majority of our country would be quarantined.
The coronavirus has turned the world upside down. We are all operating from a new normal.
As the days turn into weeks, we have no idea of when this will come to an end.
A lot of people are afraid of the actual virus, but I think most of us are afraid of the uncertainty.
We’re uncertain about our future.
Millions of Americans are now unemployed, hundreds of thousands of people are infected with the virus, and the economy is tanking.
Everything feels beyond our control.
But here’s the thing…control is an illusion.
There isn’t very much we have control of, but we can control our reaction.
We don’t have to be anxious or afraid. It’s a choice.
We can choose to accept the unknown.
In order to do that we have to embrace the uncertainty. We have to get okay with it.
That’s where the power is. Where YOUR power is.
Obviously, that is much easier said than done. But it is possible.
Here are some things I’m doing that are helping me to endure the uncertainty, so I want to encourage you to give them a try:
Use this time to create the future you desire. I don’t believe life just happens to us. I believe we are co-creators of our life. The best way to predict your future is to create it.
Stay present. Instead of worrying about the future, focus on the here and now. BE present. Stress comes when we try to figure out the future and inevitably worry ensues. Live in this moment. Make the most of it.
Remember that Grace is sufficient. Despite what it may feel like right now, you have everything you need to handle whatever is ahead of you. The grace you have been given to get you through today is actually equipping you for what you need for tomorrow. So, don’t worry about tomorrow, once you get there, you’ll know what to do.
I know my suggestions are really simple, but everything in our lives has been simplified. We don’t need to complicate anything else for the moment. The simpler the strategies are the easier they are to implement.
No matter what it looks like right now, WE will get through this!
