Fasten Your Seatbelt, It’s Going To Be A Bumpy Ride
Bette Davis spoke this classic line in the film All About Eve, and it’s certainly apropos for the world we are currently in.
Unless you are in deep denial, the fact is that the rug has been pulled out from under all of us and it’s going to be bumpy for quite some time.
As we adjust to being in a collective dark night of the soul, we are individually figuring out how wrap our heads around the fact that right now there are no real answers: no one can say when/if the virus will end; when/ if certainty and stability will return; or if life as we once knew it will return.
Whether you are suffering through this process or are doing great with it (or bouncing between happiness and misery), most of us are now learning to adapt to “being with not knowing.”
One of my core beliefs is this:
Contentment is being willing to accept both your happiness and your lack of it at any given moment. This is the practice of the spiritual warrior; to love what is, the good, the bad, the ugly and to remain centered in appreciation and gratitude.
Can you find contentment right now with what is? Start with the smallest baby step of gratitude… right now in this moment, who or what are you grateful for?
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
