Are you ready to move into your future?
You’re at a good starting point now. You’ve just lived through a couple of years where your life was different from anything you’ve experienced before.
Each of us has a different pandemic life experience.
For years, my job had a certain description, a certain pace. Suddenly, the pandemic brought in new and different rules. I remember that first Monday like a confusing dream.
One of my friends, on a road trip to California, got stuck somewhere in Nevada or Colorado for three weeks when everything shut down.
Another close friend went into her home and hasn’t come out yet. When I visit with her over the phone, I wonder if I’ll ever see her again. Social distancing is an art form for her. Her life is a closet to hide in.
We cleaned our homes, and cleaned out our homes. We took up solitary hobbies. We did things we never even imagined that we would do and then we talked about it on the phone and emailed about it. Or didn’t.
CHANGE IS IN THE AIR NOW
People are moving, getting new jobs, getting trained, starting new businesses. Whatever this shift brings, I see people going forward somehow. .
Question marks punctuate everything. Question marks are the centerpiece of this new energy. We’re riding into our futures on them.
What are some guidelines we can use in these new times?
GRIEVE THE TIME WE LIVED THROUGH THE PANDEMIC.
Honor your losses. Remember friends and relatives lost to this disease. Did you struggle with children trying to learn school lessons at home? Is your job gone forever? Did you work endless hours? Is your housing situation changed? How are you changed?
Honor these experiences and set them free.
OPEN THE CLOSET DOORS.
Send whatever fears you have away. Quit hiding from life, hiding from love.
You may be hiding old, worn-out fears and experiences in this closet. If you look in the corners, you may find baggage stuffed with fears and events you experienced in past lives even.
Whatever you’re hiding, send it on its way. You need space for the new you. Spend some time meditating about the new you – how you look and act and feel.
GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO LET YOURSELF BE YOU.
Right now the world needs you to just be you. When you are yourself, you can soar like a beautiful bird. As you soar, you release your limitations.
With your limitations gone, you’ll shine in new ways you may not have thought possible before. Let the world see the real you – the new you that was there all along,
Without limitations, how will your new life look?
For some of us, creating the new life is the most difficult part of moving into your new future. These old limitations were comfortable. Make it easier to create your new life. Creating your new identity can be a real challenge.
It can also be the best thing you can do.
BEGIN BY LETTING GO.
Let go of living with what other people expect of you. When you live your life according to what everybody else wants, you will find yourself following the crowd, and obeying the rules.
When you give up living your life for other people, you’ll find that you are discovering things you want to do to live your own life for yourself.
You may even see the big picture now.
You are good enough. You are smart enough. Know your worth.
