2020 began with so much optimism, more than usual in fact.
How quickly momentum shifts.
When life’s good, momentum can shift.
When it’s tough, momentum can shift.
The moment we embrace the certainty, that life is always uncertain, we begin movement through fear.
We check in daily to our identity and assumptions.
If you identify as a wife or husband, you can’t assume that your spouse will always be by your side.
If you identify as a mother, you can’t assume they will do what you believe they should do for life.
If you identify as a business owner, you can’t assume that business will remain.
If you identify with being healthy, you can’t assume that your health will stay strong.
If you identify as being kind, you can’t assume that something won’t arise to drive your cruelty.
The only assumption we can make with certainty, is that the only thing we have control over is our behaviours.
Rather than over-identifying as ‘something’ that can be taken away, ask how you choose to show up each day at home, work and in the community.
And then invest your energy in supporting the behaviours (physically, emotionally, mentally, socially) that help you to do that.
Doing so brings certainty in uncertain times.

Take care and be well,
