Many people are seeing December 2020 as the end to an unbelievably challenging year in the coronavirus pandemic.
We all know the pandemic will not be over when January 1st rolls in. What will be over are the long marked calendar days of 2020.
Traditionally the beginning of a new year represents new beginnings, and refreshed hope.
- What is it that you truly want?
- What is it that you truly want to feel?
- What is it that you do have?
- What is it that you do feel?
- What is within your control?
Can we truly make our inner environment greater than our outer? Yes, we can! Is it easy? No! Is it worth it? Yes!
History tells us of greats who did it. Hats off to some of my favorite greats; Albert Einstein, Anne Frank, Helen Keller, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Maya Angelou, and Mother Teresa.
Our present pandemic history is reflecting greats who are doing it.
- The exhausting mission of nurses, doctors, and other health workers who have been risking their lives to care for others.
- Truck drivers, grocery workers, and all of the other retail workers who have remained on the front lines. I am so sorry for all of the people who may have been so deep in their misery that they may have treated you poorly.
- Social distancing enabled us to learn how to communicate meaningfully in other ways; acts of kindness and care no matter how small, staying connected with our loved ones, and communities via technology, and being confronted with the sober reality that we truly only have this moment in time so purposefully allowing the present moment to be a present.
- Many of us now have the time to finally get the mental health help that was needed for too long. Remote hypnotherapy, traditional psychotherapy, and some doctor appointments taking place through Zoom, FaceTime, and other approved software. Receiving your necessary care from the comfort of your home, your private office, or even the privacy of your parked car.
- Thanks to all of this wonderful technology, I have become an International Hypnotist with clients all over the USA and in Canada and New Zealand!
May we be kind to one another, treating others the way we want to be treated. May we remember one another in our prayers. May we draw strength from one another and may we be courageous enough to ask for it when we need it. Ask a trusted person to be present with you, ask them to hear your pain with the ears of empathy and the heart of compassion.
May you experience a renewed spirit from some of the below quotes and may you feel inspired to allow your greatness to be greater and greater. Focusing more and more on what is within your control and cultivating the garden of your inner environment.
Albert Einstein, “Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has prevented me from feelings of isolation.”
Anne Frank, “Human greatness does not lie in wealth or power, but in character and goodness. People are just people, and all people have faults and shortcomings, but all of us are born with a basic goodness.”
Helen Keller, “Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.”
Ludwig Van Beethoven, “Recommend to your children virtues, that alone can make them happy, not gold.”
Mahatma Gandhi, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
Martin Luther King, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
Maya Angelou, “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.”
Mother Teresa, “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
