You’ve been on my mind.
It’s been quite a year, month, week and a moment. I’m checking in; truly wondering how you are doing. How ARE you? Honestly, authentically, really? Would you let me know? I really want to hear from you.
Personally, I feel like I’ve been on a roller coaster this year.
Are you fan of roller coasters? They’ve grown on me. I used to be afraid. I’m not great with heights, and I’m a bit risk-averse. Over time, I found that that initial purposefully slow climb up built suspense, yielded fantastic views, a new perspective I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise, and an exhilarating fast ride down. The loop-de-loops that used to fill me with worry, turned into an opportunity to feel gravity suspended just for a moment, view the world upside-down, and test my sense of adventure.
I think among the unexpected, the hard, the hurt, the loss, and the weirdness of this year, I’ve experienced a lot of opportunity to slow down and consider what’s important, to consider my role in making a difference, to recognize my privilege and use it to help others and do good. In the loop-de-loops of the year, I’ve tried to see things from a different perspective and make shifts and pivots in business and life to go with the flow, uncover new ways to serve, and make the best of the “upside down.”
On the occasions during the year that I’ve careened at top speeds for a bit of time, I’ve tried not to feel afraid and worry too much about what was around the corner, but to make sure I was buckled in, to appreciate when things felt easier and be grateful when I could see that previously expended effort, energy and inertia played a role in making the ride ok.
I’ve seen a lot of disruption, unrest, uncertainty and change this year, but I’ve also experienced and seen a lot of learning, focus, reflection, reprioritization, resiliency, community, connection and growth.
What’s been your experience? How are you doing?
What have been the hardest parts for you? Are you stuck in them right now? Have you had any silver linings, light-bulb moments or experiences you’re grateful for that you didn’t anticipate for this year? What’s good and what are you ready to leave behind?
Are you practicing self-care and keeping up with the priorities in your life and work? Could your daily routines use a tune-up? Sometimes, we just need to hit the “reset” button and reboot our habits to be productive and get time back for what matters the most. We need to take time to take care of our self, and once we’ve done that, it is possible to be productive during times of stress.
What are you grateful for? While it’s productive to feel and express gratitude all year long, it’s natural to take some extra time in November, the month of Thanksgiving, to reflect on things we’re grateful for.
I’m grateful for much in my personal life. Additionally, I am grateful for the opportunity to be of service and help to others through Simply Placed.
