I keep hearing "I can't wait until this is all over" or "I am so sick of this." Since we have no idea when solutions to the situations will occur, it is time to start LIVING! What does that look like you say?
Go for a walk, ride that bike, phone an old friend, sit on your patio and do nothing.
Job loss? Volunteer in different areas that may create networking opportunities for your next job. Perhaps your next job will be your best job yet. The problem happens when we give up or wait for someone else to come save us. When we sit and blame the world for out situations, our only option is to change directions.
No, this is not easy and it is not fun and I miss many of the enjoyments I had such as summer concerts. Feel the feelings of sadness for a minute when it is necessary because at times, it is necessary! Then adjust your sails and reach out to someone you may not know and offer support. Smile rather than frown. Laugh rather than cry. Sing rather than yell. Dance rather than sit. LIVE!
