"Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with their past and create the world a new." - Arundhati Roy
The word 'Crisis' is taken from the greek word "Krisis" which means to sift and separate to make a judgement or decision. What this 'crisis' we are experiencing is a chance to sift out what no longer serves us and create the world anew?
As life begins to get busier and noisier take time to take stock of what is important to you, what has the pandemic shown you about yourself, the way you live your life and what do you want to commit to as you go forward? Everything you do casts a vote for the way you want the world to be. Make your vote count by being conscious of what you are supporting. Stay true to you heart and values and watch yourself and the world flourish as a result.
Starting with yourself and let go of the habits that no longer serve you so your can become the best possible version of yourself. Clean up your own act as regards to the way you nourish yourself through diet, exercise and self talk. A daily practice of yoga, quiet walking, gentle movement and meditation will give you a strong foundation for this and there are many tools such as Emotional Freedom Technique to help you succeed.
The 'crisis' the pandemic has brought has highlighted the positive and the negative aspects of human nature and, without a doubt there has been much devastation and sadness. There has also been wonderful stories of communities coming together to help and support each other and there have been many examples of how kind, funny, loving, courageous and resilient humans can be. The earth has showed signs of repair, her waters are running clearer, the air we are breathing is cleaner and wildlife is certainly confirming that we are on to a good thing so why would we just want to get back?
It's time to live smart so we can live well, make choices that support our dreams not hinder our progress towards a cleaner, healthier, fairer and happier future for every living being.
Take stock of what is important to you and commit to staying on track as you go forward, feeling powerful in the knowing that everything you do is casting a vote for the way you want the world to be.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
