Positivity Not Panic

The world changed in a matter of weeks last month.

Contrast this week to even 2 weeks ago…

Coronavirus spread fast and has impacted the entire globe.

In our lifetimes, we’ve never encountered anything like this.

The impact will be felt for years to come, no doubt.

Both emotionally for those who’ve lost loved ones but economically as well.

Uncertain times lead to panic and fear.

And we end up making decisions from a place of panic and fear – which will never be the best, most rational ones.

In times of fear, most people pull back. They retreat.

Don’t retreat to a diet of constant news and headlines. We seek certainty. Certainty that things will be okay. They will be.

Tell yourself that and instead of ingesting news, focus on the positives in your life instead.

If you’re reading this today, evaluate what your life is right now.

Are you sitting in a warm home with food?

Do you have everything you need?

If so, and you’ve got loved ones close by, remind yourself that right now you are ok.

And you will be ok through this and on the other side.

Because it will pass, even if the days are beginning to feel long.

You’ve got this.
