Today marks 10 years since I became gainfully unemployed and started my coaching practice at Leading With Heart. I have invested $$ tens of thousands into online marketing strategies, multiple coaching certifications and mega miles of travel.
It took COVID in 2020 to bring me the ultimate gift of clarity. It is simple. Super simple.
Life is transformative. Change is the only constant. We see it in nature and society alike as species, families, organizations or governments adapt and evolve or destabilize and disappear.
Power and control are the ultimate illusions. The idea that we have lasting influence on anything outside of ourselves is the final fantasy.
COVID has exposed our humanity and hidden agendas. No excuses, no hall pass. It is an equal opportunity wake-up call.
I am drawn to count my blessings as society sputters to restart amid global turmoil. I am rereading sacred scripture for new insight.
I am blessed to have developed a daily meditation practice before being thrown into social distancing that most days smacked of isolation.
I have always been late to the party of life. I approached everything as a problem to be solved. It made me an asset in corporate America and a liability in love.
I am blessed with a late in life opportunity to love without measure.
Everything on earth is transitory and temporary. Legacy is an ego prop. This moment, this breath, this body is all we have to experience the magic of life around us.
I don’t want to miss one single second going forward.
Thank you COVID for Life Lesson #34,164.
