How are you Friend?
How is your life at the moment?
Is it going at a slow pace, rather mundane, and you’re happy that way?
Or is it going at a slow pace, rather mundane, and you’re feeling bored?
If you’re feeling bored, remember that you have the power to make the changes you need to get excited about your life.
So... what will you do?
Is everything kind of ok and you are taking time to appreciate the good things in your life?
Or is everything kind of ok and you only notice what’s going wrong?
If you only notice what’s going wrong, make a point of noticing what’s going right as well.
You just might realise that you are going through a very good period in your life because nothing is ever perfect, and if everything is kind of ok, it sounds to me like everything is going pretty well. Enjoy!
Does it feel like you’re in a hurricane? That things are moving faster than you can deal with them?
If so, is it the result of some decisions of yours or of some unexpected life situation(s)?
If it’s your doing, enjoy the ride.
Remember that you needed that « change », that you asked for it, trust and keep going.
If it’s not, you seem to be going through a hard patch.
Do your best, and your best at this time might not be much, and let that be ok. It might even get a bit harder before you find your feet again, before you find a new normal. Just know that you will.
Adaptation or changes might be required. Trust that you can deal with the situation at hand.
Give it the time it needs. Be patient. Give yourself (and other people) a break... and some TLC.
Do you feel stuck? Nothing working as you hoped or planned?
Take a break.
If you can, go on a holiday, if you can’t, make the most of your day off.
And go do something completely different, something outside of your comfort zone, outside of your daily routine, something that will focus your attention fully, something that will stop you thinking for a little while. It can be anything: going for a day walk, reading a saga, drawing, ... anything that you can immerse yourself into.
Make sure that: you detach yourself from your usual thoughts by concentrating on the activity you are doing, breathe, use all of your senses and be in the moment. Just be in the moment. Then come back to your life. Let the dust settle and notice how you feel, notice if a new way of seeing things comes up.
If not, repeat.
The important bit here is to change the energy: your physical energy, your mental energy, the energy of your environment... Get unstuck by shaking things up.
(if you need more examples of things to do, let me know).

In this era of social networks and polarization of ideas, isn't it more important than ever, at a personal level and at a community/social level?
