OUR MIND IS OUR BIGGEST BATTLEGROUND…

With COVID-19 occupying so much of our present attention, we need now more than ever to keep ourselves in check.

In the game of life, we all receive a unique set of unexpected limitations and variables in the field of play. The question is: How will you respond to the hand youโ€™ve been dealt? You can either focus on the lack thereof or empower yourself to play the game sensibly and resourcefully, making the very best of every outcome as it arises, even when itโ€™s heartbreaking and hard to accept.

Obviously, with the COVID-19 virus spreading rapidly right now, we are all facing a hard reality. And while human lives are the primary concern, it is also prudent to consider the impact it may have on your mental health. Truth be told, we occupy an uncertain moment in time, on the cusp of a potentially historic event. Itโ€™s important to think of ways to mentally and emotionally prepare yourself.

Remind yourself that when you can’t control what’s happening in the world around you, you must challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening. Because that’s where your power is!

Thus, we all have some incredibly important choices to make…

We can choose how we spend our time in the days and weeks ahead. We can choose gratitude and grace. We can choose whom we socialize withโ€”and perhaps more importantly, whom we don’t (social distancing). We can choose to love and appreciate the people in our lives for exactly who they are. We can choose to love and appreciate ourselves, too. We can choose how weโ€™re going to respond to lifeโ€™s surprises and disappointments (COVID-19 being one of them), and whether we will see them as curses or opportunities for personal growth.

And, perhaps most importantly,ย we can choose to think better about our present circumstances, and let go of what we canโ€™t control, so we can consciously make the best of what’s ahead of us.

When we THINK BETTER, we LIVE BETTER, and peace becomes us.
