Monday Missive ~ Pause

Seems like we didn’t listen, and were given a forced choice.  The busy, frenetic life so many were living has been brought pretty much to a halt; or drastically slowed down. The thing I’m seeing now is that the frenetic busyness has moved itself onto social media. I understand the need to connect as we isolate, to feel that others are having the same anxious feelings, to reach out for consolation, but it seems that it is also days filled with memes, Facebook games to find out what your name is based on what you last ate and color of your shirt, what friends will be in jail with you, and on it goes.

In talking to a friend this morning we wondered if, once we can get out of isolation, people will go right back to how they lived their lives before the pandemic.

I would like to think that maybe once this is over and we’re released from our quarantine, that we will live  in a different way, a richer life of kindness to all of the earth’s inhabitants, all living things, and value each other more; show more love to everyone. Live mindfully. We’re going to need to do that because it will be a very different world.

Hit the pause button, slow it down even more and visualize how a changed life for you will be in the future. And then practice the good parts any way you can, now.

Pause and share love any way you can, now.
