Well here we are, three weeks into this “hibernation period” and it has been an emotional roller coaster.
Thoughts constantly flood my mind about the future. If it’s not those thoughts, it’s food. Social Media is exciting, following up on old threads that consumed me in the beginning, and in the same breath, it highlights everything which is so wrong with the situation we find ourselves in.
The process of making it through this period seems to be a bit of an un-researched topic, but social media is the last place to go looking for answers. The next 2 weeks is our extension for now, and the fear of a further extension is a cancer that can’t be removed from my thoughts.
The absolute depths of these times are uncharted and the panic creeps in, in a mild way which seems to linger. Money, food and family. It never stops!
Now is the time people are looking for leaders. Do not give up on the community around you, start thinking about change. I imagine the absolute joy we will feel when we are all together on the outside, allowed to roam freely. As for the next 2 weeks, I will spend more quality time with my daughter.
Somewhere in the future, we will all look back on our current sad situation, and whatever you reminisce on in that moment, is whatever you’re doing right now. The present will determine your thoughts and memories in the future – make the best of it!
From a business point of view… My staff are relying on me to make sure that they will be financially covered through this time of uncertainty. These are real responsibilities that owners of companies are facing. It’s terrifying. The only thing that keeps me going, is the fact that I am not alone in all of this, most of the world is in the same boat.
Broaden your mind, join conversations to gain a different perspective of the way everyone perceives this predicament we find ourselves in. Your situation is dire, but so is everyone else’s. Develop a better eating regime, keep training and read books.
Most importantly, be there for your life partner! They will love you in all the ways you need if you let them.
Also, take note of the people who are calling you and remember that they are looking for your assurance that things will get better.
Be honest, communicate your thoughts and be prepared, this experience will change us all! At the end of all of this, everyone will be hopeful and happy. Be part of the support system that will form once we’re allowed to leave the house! Integrate yourself in your community and take this time to allow yourself to grow!
Keep that culture going!
