You’ve Gotta Be Nimble

Obstacles are things that a person sees when he takes his eyes off the goal. Mahatma Gandhi.

In today’s challenging era, it seems to me that as we face up to what is going to be a different world we have two choices: We can avert our eyes and longingly look back to what was and is no more or we can excitedly scan the horizon for what’s new and exciting.

Staying in between is not an option.

To those with the courage and the vision to look for the best path forward, the choice is to be light of foot.

In the words of Priyamvada Natarajan,” being nimble and ready to change our minds if need be is an attitude that is crucial to live and thrive in a society that is powered by science and technology, both as an individual and as an engaged citizen.”

You’ve gotta be nimble on your feet.

Hmm…

Stay Safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.

I look forward to seeing you back here again soon.

We’re Getting There…

It always seems impossible until it’s done. Nelson Mandela.

As the world begins to reopen and we all start to think about how to grapple with the new reality, the over-arching question is, “where do you go from here?

It isn’t going to be easy. In this time of global economic, social and political upheaval, all options are on the table.

So how do you get on to what’s next in these unconventional times?

Where do you start?

Start at the beginning. By taking responsibility for yourself. Have a quiet talk with yourself. Establish what you really value and what you know, in your heart of hearts, you’re all about. And whom you want to serve.

Establishing the right intentions can help you stay optimistic and positive.

You get to decide how you live your life. The freedom is yours to choose and even when it feels impossible, remember it’s not. For those who want it bad enough, the future’s right up ahead and it’s going to be amazing!

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.

I look forward to seeing you back here again soon.

Jump Right In!

Throw your dreams into space like a kiteand you do not know what it will bring backa new life, a new love, a new country. Anais Nin.

It has been a strange, sometimes bewildering year. Covid-19 has affected everybody in so many different ways. Exhausted and fed up with social distancing, school closings, work place disruptions and the occasional restrictive lock downs, most are just waiting for it to be over and a return to the new normality, whatever that entails.

Some, though, having been given the time and resources, have paused to reflect upon how they are living and what they are doing with their lives. Could it be, they wonder, have I got it all right and just need to ratchet up my efforts or, perhaps, could I take a different path?

It isn’t over yet but a  major event, like a pandemic will do that to people. It forces everyone to get serious about life. To get crystal clear about who they are, what they’re up to and, most importantly, why.

They wonder, could this just be a half-time break or, perhaps, time for a major change of some sort?

Big questions. They don’t get any bigger. And they are not for everyone.

Change is never easy. And it doesn’t happen overnight. It will inevitably take much longer than expected. And, if you’re going to create something new, there will probably come a time when you are going to have to break out of the way you think and see the world.

Odds are you are going to have to try something you’ve never attempted before. You may even have to go up against people who seem to know better than you do. No matter. Just follow your intuition and do the work.

Sometimes, there’s no other way.

Jump right in. When you’ve gone as far as you can, you’ll know what to do next.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I hope to see you back here again soon.

Everything Counts

What you think you become. What you feel you attract. What you imagine you create. Buddha.

we-become-what-we-think-2-drew-simmie

It takes a lifetime to make a life. Finding one’s way isn’t easy, especially today, in the throes of the pandemic. Sorting out the ‘wheat from the chafe’, what’s truly important from what isn’t, requires many personal values and attributes, including clarity, self-esteem, and courage. Especially the latter.

Everything flows from courage. It’s the foundation upon which all our other actions stem.

Each of us creates our own experiences by our thoughts, feelings and actions… painting a picture, if you will, of ourselves and how we can be the best version of ourselves that we can be.

Everything we think, say and do, every move we make, is creating our future success. Our thoughts and deeds create who we become.

There are no short cuts, no magic potions to a balanced life; however you measure it.

It takes hard work, honesty… aware, always, of the idea that everything counts.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  

I look forwqrd to seeing you back here again soon.
