The current times are troublesome. We are having to bite the bullet with the pandemic here in the South Pacific at this very moment. I thought our little island bubble would not burst, but it eventually did. I suppose I was naive to think that we would be safe and almost untouchable.
It is when the Reality gets Real when the true measurements start.
Today, we are very much of a one-person away from catching this virus, so the game of preparation has changed very quickly.
I am really having to dig deep and “drink my own medicine “on what I wrote and spoke earlier in the year about Covid-19 Virus.
As we are now preparing for the second spread of the virus, I must remind myself of something. Looking too far in the future or thinking of probabilities that may or may not happen only bring unnecessary worry and fear. We must accept that the Uncertainty is the name of the game while going through this rough patch.
The best Anxiety, Stress, and worry tip I have an offer for the current times is simply this:
Focus on the elements and actions that are under your own DIRECT influence, not what is outside of your Reach.
I am very much aware that this is a lot easier said than done, yet I truly feel that it cannot be stated enough.
Keeping our Focus on what is directly in front of us at this present moment brings Clarity.
We can only control what we can, I believe the biggest stressors come from when we are trying to have influence over things that we do not have any influence on. At the end of the day, when you look deeper into it, our personal safety and health is on the line which will do either one of the two things.
The Fear will freeze you or kick you into gear and towards greater actions and Momentum.
One of the very reasons that the fear exists in the first place, is to mobilize us and for our mind to start finding solutions!
Stagnation breeds fear and worry whereas Movement creates Momentum away from the source of the fear. Remember, that you can only control what you can!
Keep your feet moving and Focus on watering the grass on your side of the fence.
Hope that helps? Share to whoever needs to hear this today!
