I’ve always been an over-thinker, always trying to make decisions that match my deepest feelings. I feel all the possibilities and seek clarity deep in my soul. This often means that I am slow to act, but can then be very impulsive. I’m willing to take some risks that many wouldn’t, if they feel right, even if they don’t always make the most sense on paper.
This whole pandemic has only amplified the desire to be even more attentive to the way I want to live. While this always means aligning my actions more closely with my heart, I also feel that these changes have created some uncertainty about how to make decisions. As if now what makes sense in my soul must also make more sense on paper and for the people we love most? (Is anyone else looking for the next step for a student who isn’t coming back to the dorm this fall?).
Maybe these feelings are part of aging, when suddenly there are fewer years in front of you than behind you. They are probably magnified by the unusual circumstances that surround us all these days. When we were just doing normal things that we took for granted, like earning a living or sending our kids to school or even eating in a restaurant with friends, it is no longer possible or not as easy as it used to be, the life we know it changes whether we like it or not.
Change is a challenge, but sometimes embracing it can lead to life’s most fulfilling adventures.
How do you cope with all the changes in your world, my friend?
