I wanted to share a quick message with you considering the events that are unfolding on the planet as we speak. The COVID-19 events directly affect our lives, because we know that tomorrow will not be the same.
There will be a new normal, and it’s coming. Pretty fast.
I also don’t want to scare you any more than you are already traumatized.
I’ve been on a Movement Control Order for the whole country for over four weeks now. And, I’m getting a little antsy.
Now I am sure you have received lots of emails regarding this state of affairs, but this one is unlike any that I have sent before.
Why? Because I want to help you move past the fears, the anxiety, and the disconnectedness you might currently be experiencing when you think about the future.
I want to help you move towards a future with confidence, clarity, and courage. I want you to know that I’m here to support you and help you move away from the panic and towards your purpose.
I want to see you thrive in that new normal that is just around the corner.
So, What’s Going to Happen?
Most places are now in shutdown mode if not complete lockdowns. We’re on a Movement Control Order here, and it is helping slow the rate of the spread of the virus.
But it has been devastating for businesses, transportation, workers, and healthcare, to name a few. Businesses will go under and some will thrive and have more success than ever before.
In the midst of this tragedy, there is opportunity. It’s the time to think, reconsider, reassess, and plan for action.
The bad news…
There will be a big hit to the worldwide economy. But you already know that.
What does this mean to you?
Well, it means things will not be the same when we emerge from this. We’ll need to re-tool our thinking, how we relate to each other, how we do an economy, and what really matters to us. As individuals and as communities.
And this is what I’ve learned after lots of hard knocks…after all, this is Denise you’re talking to right now.
You know me, who has been through it and has discovered a different way of approaching life that has made all the difference.
If we have ignored our inner life, our true voice, our purpose, our spirituality, and the love that brings us life, then we will be hurting. Again, as individuals, communities, and nations.
The good news…
Those who have cleared their emotional, psychological, and spiritual clutter will have the advantage to move forward quickly into a new life with purpose, and a life they’ve chosen by design. Not just what the current culture told them to be or do, but a life they’ve intended based on what brings them meaning.
This is a new day. It’s just around the corner.
That’s because they grabbed this opportunity to go deep inside themselves, let go of inner pain and blockages, connect to a deeper purpose, and set healthy, loving, insightful intentions for their futures.
And that is the key. And I’m talking about you. And me.
Do that inner work FIRST, and the outer situations will start falling into place once you are aligned with your higher and true purpose.
Will you be ready? Or do you want to just re-enter your past and live the same old, same old? You really do have choices here.
I know, because I made different choices in my life that brought me into a whole new way of living. With confidence, clarity, and courage. And a lot more calm.
I want to support you as you move your life and your purpose into a new day. A new world. A new you.
Can you design a better life for your future?
I’m going to bring my lifetime of wisdom, experiences, learning, teachings, and knowledge to helping you not just survive this time but build hope for thriving for tomorrow.
What I’m hoping is that if more of us take this time to ask ourselves some tough questions, release unhelpful behaviors and beliefs, reorient our deepest yearnings, and then redesign our lives and futures—we will each have a profound impact on the wellbeing of our world.
The key right now…
If you’re finding yourself getting swept up in the fear, and you’re trying to make life decisions, then you might be setting yourself up for failure.
The key right now is to breathe, be calm, and take a step back before you make any decisions.
Right now you need to do the inner work needed so you’re ready for the next step that is ready to unfold for you.
Can you turn this into an opportunity?
Absolutely…and you should!
For you…and if you’re doing good for you, that good flows out to everyone around you.
This isn’t about being selfish or self-centered, this is about healing yourself so you can have the clarity, confidence, and courage to live into the new day that is coming.
The world needs you. The real, whole, healthy you.
Now, most folks will be pulling down the shades, contracting rather than expanding, shutting things down. I know we have to be on our toes to make it through this time, but this is not the time to shrink from the opportunity to move forward into a new life, a new world.
It’s an opportunity for you to strategize on how you want to change your life.
It’s an opportunity to start—one-by-one—new habits, perspectives, healthy beliefs, that will carry you through to the other side, the future you want to live.
It’s an opportunity for you to be person you want to be and give back to the world around you.
It’s an opportunity for you to dream bigger than you’ve dreamed before.
Here’s what I’m personally doing…
What I’m doing is creating a clear pathway through this situation that will lead my clients, friends, and tribe to designing a new life for the future.
Uncommon, out-of-the-ordinary strategies, if you will…
Looking forward to connecting and helping you thrive,
Denise “Yes, Life is Changing” Peterson, MM, CBCP
