“So, I guess it is pretty tough to thrive these days, isn’t it?” a friend remarked. He was assuming that, in order to thrive, life must be going well. Everything in place, and everything humming along.
Sure, those are nice days. And yes, they represent easier moments. But thriving is not just about having things go well. It is possible to thrive, in spite of what life is throwing your way.
Or maybe because of what life is throwing at you.
And wow, life is really throwing it at us these days, isn’t it? Yesterday marked the one year anniversary since the first COVID case made it to the States. We’ve been living with that virus now for a year. Then throw in the economic struggles, thanks to the virus. Then toss in a little political struggle, some social unrest. These are challenging days!
And if we aren’t careful, we can let media (social and otherwise) keep us hyped up on fear and dread.
Or we can find our place of calm. Our spot of ease.
In this episode of Thriveology Podcast, I cover the space between Un-Ease, Dis-Ease, and Ease. How to make the shift.
