We’re all having to learn—faster than we ever imagined—to get used to uncertainty and unpredictability. We might even discover there are gifts in finding comfort in not knowing what’s a-head of us and living in ambiguity. Russian novelist, Fyodor Dostoevsky, once wrote, “Times of crisis, of disruption or constructive change, are not only predictable, but desirable. They mean growth. Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.”
We can learn to forgive ourselves for past decisions and decide whether we want to hang on to them. We can attend hundreds of summits on purpose and leadership and post hundreds of tweets, but unless we experiment with life itself, they are only words. Life is not lived by following someone outside ourselves, but through action and learning how to follow our own lead instead.
It’s time to move away from what cannot and will not change. It’s time to find the courage to get to know ourselves well enough to adopt a healthy mindset, which we can use to build a new, healthy life. Now is the time to begin healing ourselves and our beautiful planet that was made for living fully. If you’ve made it this far, ask yourself whether you’re being called to remember that you are part of nature, and check to see if you are on high alert for any signs of unnatural separation and division from yourself and others. It is your time to heal, to mend yourself with the togetherness that integrity and compassion bring into your life. When we align to natural cycles, there is no need for winning or losing—there is only movement and flow.
