It’s often said that when a person faces death or has a near-death experience, it changes their perspective on life. But sometimes we act as we have forever to take action to improve a situation or to achieve a goal.
Since COVID hit, we have experienced a level of uncertainty never thought of or imagined. Let me clarify that statement; I never thought or imagined a time like this. Did you ever think that you would see the day when nearly everything across this country would be shut down? I mean businesses literally closed and not just here in the United States but around the world. Schools closed. Bars and restaurants closed. Concerts canceled. No sports! Nothing for months! Did you ever think that it was even possible for this to happen?
So, here we are five months later and we’re still in the middle of a pandemic with no cure for the virus insight. The recent events have clearly shown us that life can change in an instant. Life the way it was is gone. After the pandemic, we will face a “new normal.” In the meantime, it really is up to each of us to choose how we will live our lives each day. For some, the pandemic has caused anxiety and depression. For others, a heightened sense of service and contribution. Believe me, I completely understand the level of devastation that surrounds us.
It breaks my heart that hundreds and thousands of people have died due to COVID. As a result, I think the thought of death looms for all of us. Death can become a reality for anyone of us any day. But wasn’t that always the case? Just now that we’re experiencing so much of it on a daily basis, it consumes us.
What we focus on expands. No matter how bad the situation, I choose to focus on LIFE, LOVE, PEACE, and PROSPERITY. Each day we are here on earth is a gift; that’s why it’s called the “present”. The power is in the present moment “NOW”. What are you doing with the gift of today?
What area of your life would you like to improve?
What do you want to be, do, or have?
Is there a goal that you want to achieve?
Life really is short. Whatever it is that you dream of doing or having, start working to achieve it. The power is within YOU, right NOW.
