For over a year, we have been facing some major changes in our lifestyles due to the pandemic. Changes that are evolving with every day that passes.
Some of us have permanently shifted to working at home. Many parents have been helping their kids transition back to in-person education and interacting more with their friends.
What are some of the high points and traditions we may want to recall? Maybe it’s the new things we’ve learned, new work opportunities that are now available, valued family time, or something special that is individually ours to recollect.
What is happening today will become part of our history someday. What might we want that to look like?
What might feel most vital to each of us at this moment in time? For each person, it’s likely different.
What might we focus on most?
- Might it be the anticipation of what’s next?
- What creative ideas might have presented themselves over this past year?
- What might be new traditions we want to continue or implement?
- What feels important about living a healthy, happy lifestyle?
Times gone by will forever highlight things we want to remember and every present-day is a chance for coming up with new concepts for our future!
Whether we are fearful of what’s next or thinking creatively, what might be one small thing we can do in a new, inspired way?
Roberto Clemente, a professional baseball player, once said, “Anytime you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you DON’T, then you are wasting your time on this earth.”
Remember Amy Purdy’s (Paralympic Bronze medalist) question when everything in her life changed at the age of 19? “If your life was a book, how would you want the book to end?”
How might we want our stories to be written?
Businesses and entertainment venues in many areas are now becoming more amenable to in-person activity indoors and out. While we realize things will not be exactly the way they were before, what might we want tomorrow to look like?
If we focus on being creative, can this be an opportunity for each of us to have an impact on our future like Roberto Clemente suggests in his quote?
We couldn’t have foreseen what we are experiencing right now and fear can affect our present if we allow it.
Life doesn’t throw us what’s predictable. The choices we can make can help us powerfully design our story.
If we permit ourselves to view today with creative potential, how might we be able to plan the history of tomorrow?
Michelle Weimer says, “When life gets blurry, adjust your focus”.
So, what might be one new thing we can implement today to create the legacy we want to leave behind? What can we do to make sure it happens?
By implementing a “ME” Monday® routine today, we can improve our overall R.O.I. to have a great today and determine the tomorrow we deserve!
