Have you ever heard the phrase, “A watched pot never boils”? When you want something to happen, paying attention to it will make the wait feel much longer.
How long have the last three months felt like–really? Eternity? If that’s how you are feeling, you can join the millions of others around the world who are feeling the same way! A day seems like a week, a week seems like a month, and a month feels like a year because we are caught up in a continuous loop of information, disinformation, stress, and just waiting to see what will happen next.
It’s time to stop watching and start doing. Do anything! Read. Write. Learn. Create Videos. Update your business plan. Update your marketing plan. Reach out to others. Learn the art of meditation or yoga… Take Action!
Many people are suffering from depression right now, and the sense of uncertainty because there is not a “finish line” date to this thing only heightens that emotion.
“Change your thoughts and you change your world,” are still wise words to live by. If your only focus is the chaos and crisis in the world, your mind and body have only fear and grief to fuel it. When you shift your focus to creativity, productivity, and hope – you give yourself a gift of more peace, energy, and joy. When you do – you’ll inspire others to do the same – bringing more light into a world that could really use it. So, leave the “pot” to do what it will do. Watch, instead, things that will deliver new perspectives, skills, and peace of mind.
Something to Think About
It was just four months ago that all of us were saying, “I need more hours in my day.” Now we have that time, so don’t waste it waiting for things to go back to the way they were. Embrace the now!
