I have been musing on the words, Accept and Surrender, over the past few weeks as I comprehend our collective ‘new normal’. For many people, the stillness that the corona virus has brought to our lives has been both unnerving and triggering.
Acceptance of the current ‘what is’ can be challenging when you wish the circumstance you are in was different.
Surrendering to your lack of control in a situation like this can feel unnatural and uncomfortable.
During times of crisis, people who have learned how to be resilient in the face of adversity, thrive.
The people who simply survive are those who resist the ‘what is’ that has been thrust their way; they often ‘grin and bear it’ ungraciously.
Some people allow fear, scarcity and paranoia to take over their mind, body and spirit.
Which category do you fit into? Are you in one camp but wish you were in the other? Are you a survivor and wish you were a thriver? If so, you might need to readjust your mindset about this whole, crazy new time we find ourselves in. Our. It’s collective.
Mel and I want to make this current time of crazy just that little but easier for people so we are running online workshops working through her signature program The Ritual of Change™ which outlines and deep dive into the nine separate phases in the process of change.
In the online workshop we break down, into bite-size bits of understanding, what happens for you when change comes knocking unexpectedly or when you’ve discovered that you are seeking a change in your life.
Every time we encounter change, whether it is forced or intentional, we have to pass through these very specific nine phases to come out successfully on the other side.
Not surprisingly one of the most important early phases is acceptance. Acceptance of ‘what is’.
If you’d like to explore further where you are and how you can change being in survivor to a thriver we’d love you to join us.
