In this time of change in the world it is time to come together in (virtual) support of each other
There’s so much anxiousness in the world right now
understandable as we are faced with more unknowns than we have collectively had to face for a long time
many of us have not lived through global concerns of this magnitude
at these times there’s key things for us all to remember
the reactions of others are going to be different to what you have experienced in the past
things you’re usually rational brain would consider crazy in different times may become more common place
it’s a time to be kind to yourself and each other
it’s time to be considerate and more patient with yourself and each other
it’s time to be patient with yourself and each other
there will be questions you have that you do not have answers to
parents, grandparents, aunties – the children in your lives will be seeking greater reassurance than ever and even though they may not understand what’s going on they will pick up on your reactions and responses
business owners, employers, employees – this is a time for flexibility and consideration as to the impacts on individuals and families and a time to be creative with how you respond – how you keep your business flowing – how you support yourself and support others
having personally been the victim of a cyber attack this week that’s still unfolding it’s a time to stay calm amidst the storm and mixed feelings about the world and the people who are still out there doing bad things to others
let’s work together to ride this out and come out the other side stronger and wiser and more connected, not less
check on those people in your life who might be alone, scared, compromised
be relaxed and practice self love and care as much as possible
I penned the above in response to what has been happening across the world this week in response to the rapid spread of the Coronavirus. COVID19 has made an impact on the world and there are many feeling all the feelings as they navigate changes hour by hour, not day by day.
This is a time to get clearer on who you are. A time to build confidence and resilience and to move forward from a place of strengths.
If you know your Thrive Factor Archetypes then revisit them now. Be aware of the potential challenges you could experience. When you are stressed, anxious, feeling overwhelmed or concerned for any reason the negative side of your Archetypes can become your default response.
That doesn’t have to be the case. Be a woman of strengths. Move forward with grace and intention. Choose thriving even if it feels like it is the last thing you’re feeling.
From me to you here’s to big love and a whole lotta thriving
I’m going to hang with Archie cat and back to chillin on the sofa whilst I plan the best way to support you, the women of the world who choose to show up and make thriving your goal
