Struggling with staying positive amidst pandemic recovery uncertainty? You are not alone. While misery may love company, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Our minds can be a terrible influence when we allow them to run away with things we do not know. This includes assumptions we make about others and what we think they may be thinking. It can wreak havoc on your wellbeing.
Instead of worrying about what the future may hold, think about what you’d like the future to hold. Let go of perceived barriers and ask yourself, “If I could accomplish one thing this year what would it be?” And then ask yourself, “OK, so how do I make this happen?” Wanting to go away? Ask yourself where you’d like to go, who you would go with, where you’d like to stay (camp, hotel, resort, friends, family) and then ask yourself, “what do I need to make this happen?”
The whole energy shift goes to one of making something happen vs. feeling or allowing yourself to be the victim. The same pattern holds true, if you’d like to get a new job, start a new relationship, improve an existing one, or make more money.
Asking is an amazing tool when we allow ourselves to ask – for what we need, why it’s important and why it will make you happy. You may not always get you want but having people know what you want, including the universe, is one more step in the right direction.
