Covid Made Me Do It!
In my last blog I wrote how Covid gave me the time and space to bake scones. Then eat scones. Then not exercise.
I’ve been thinking about that blog ever since. What did Covid make me do exactly? Besides eat comfort food, reminiscent of my childhood with my grandmother, to feel better. My grandmother, and mother, gave me coffee, mostly milk, and cookies for breakfast. It wasn’t unit l my first babysitter, an older woman who put me on the kindergarten bus, Lottie, who balked at that and feed me blueberries and cream. I discovered a healthy sweet treat for the first time in my life. It’s natural I would go back to the comfort of my matriarchal line for comfort during difficult times.
Covid made me pivot. That’s for sure. My services are mostly online now, something that I resisted and now I love.
Lesson #1: Resistence means there’s inevitable change coming your way.
That’s when I realized the deeper meaning of Covid. It made me CHANGE.
Most people have a love/hate relationship with change. Do you?
I sometimes get scared and fearful about it. In the end, though, I take the RISK and assume a LEAP OF FAITH.
Lesson #2: Change makes you rethink life.
That’s where I’m at right now. Rethinking how I want to be in my relationships. Especially the relationship with myself.
What am I doing on autopilot that I no longer want to do?
How do I want to show up in the world, with my family, my friends, my community, myself?
What are my priorities, really, really?
What do I want the next part of my life to look like?
YUP, Covid made me do it, all right.
It made me CHANGE.
How about you?
