Surviving or Thriving?
“You can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.” Maya Angelou
But what about how you handle snow storms, water shortages, loss of electricity or a pandemic? Here we are almost a full quarter into the new year. How are you doing? Are you thriving or just surviving? Or have you lost the ability to even measure your “thrive”?
One measure is your capacity for resiliency, the ability to recover quickly from difficulties. But wow – the difficulties just kept coming. Perhaps you’ve lost your resiliency.
Another sign of thriving is feeling like you’re making a valuable contribution to the community. But how can you do that when you’re stuck at home behind a Zoom screen? And what is “community” anyway?
We may hope that the worst is behind us, but even if it isn’t, now may be the time to recalibrate. Sometimes a navigation system drifts slightly off course and needs a fresh point of reference to recalibrate. A small change to an instrument causes it to resume measuring accurately.
It may seem counter-intuitive, knowing that you have perhaps lost your focus or lack energy. You may not feel like doing what feels like more heavy lifting. But doing the work of recalibrating your goals, and reaffirming your purpose in life will bring back the excitement and set you up to thrive.
