Is it a lemon? Is it an orange? I can’t tell what today’s picture really is. It’s fruit and I love fruit. I’m not able to eat oranges any more, but I love a hint of lemon in water, on fish, well on just about everything I eat. 🙂
Right now and for the foreseeable future, it’s going to important for us to learn how to “turn lemons into lemonade.” So it’s going to be about taking the “sour” moments of life and turning them into a “sweet delight.” The only way I know of doing that is by controlling thoughts – especially the wandering kind 🙂 . That means different things to different people.
Find out what that means for you and start practicing so you can make it a habit. Change is the name of the game. And while we’ve all had to make a lot of changes lately, there are many more to come. That means you need to have a solid foundation for keeping your eye on your goals and not allowing the “crisis du jour” to stir you up. Easy? Heck no — at least not for me.
Each day holds its own challenges. All we can do is our best in the moment. Your power is in the present. Find one small thing to keep your equanimity in check and do that. Just one small thing. Do it several times a day or every day. Now is a great time to implement new mental habits. These will be part of your toolkit to help you navigate what’s to come for the remainder of 2020 and beyond.
What you need to know …
… Soon, we’ll all be able to leave our homes and get back to life and work
… The weather will be changing — it will get hotter or colder depending on where you live in the world.
… You’ll find you have even more things to do than you ever thought — so now’s the time to get all those annoying things off the To Do List.
… You’re going to want to get your plans in place now through December. As unbelievable as it is, we only have 7 months left of this year. Start planning your calendar now. It’s time to gather your resources to create the future you want to see.
In the meantime … Live for today — in the present. Be safe. Be well. Be grateful!
