Sunday Reflection Quote…No matter the capacity, hard work is simply that—hard. If one is working on their career, personal goals, or self improvement on a physical/mental/emotional level, the grind can get stale. There’s the rub. If the mindset is “grind,” then the connotation may lead to a static path of negativity. If the mindset is to “strive,” then the path is dynamic and positive. Due to the pandemic, as a collective, we’ve passed the one year mark of working hard through challenge after challenge after challenge. Fatigue or impatience with oneself or others may be more pronounced. Nonetheless, now is the time to push through and persevere on a micro and macro level. I’m reminded I am a hard worker; hard wired to strive. Those efforts have been fruitful. I’m also reminded I have one life and I have the power to choose how I live it. Here’s to being kind to myself and pushing on with perseverance and striving!
Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on Monday)…Like most, I’m so over it. I mean seeeriously (said with my Mickey Mouse voice 😉😆). Over all the policy and protocol changes. Over the inefficiencies of bureaucratic bullshit. Over people in power making decisions with ZERO experience or context. Over the uncertainty of the future. I mean, seriously! Nonetheless, nonetheless. I’m reminded the future is ALWAYS uncertain. Always has been and always will be. That being said, I’m reminded to live in the now. Why? The beauty of peace and happiness yields more value. I’m reminded living in the past feeds depression and living in the future feeds anxiety and fear. I’m reminded don’t tell me, I’m the teller. Here’s to living immediately!
Sunday Reflection Quote…Just like that, we’re all getting schooled. Ironically, while we try to flatten the curve, the learning curve is insanely steep. The levels of adversity we’re experiencing as individuals and as a collective spans a continuum. The end points unknown. I’m reminded we all perceive and process adversity differently. Each predicated on prior experiences; each equally valid. Here’s to acknowledging the difficulties, shifting gears, and pressing on.
