Thoughts about the current paradigm shift…

.

Hey, all…these are some of my thoughts about the current paradigm shift we are experiencing on a mass level…
.

.
.
While neither Boston nor the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have “SHELTER IN PLACE” orders, that could (and likely WILL) change in the very near future. Even Marshall Law. Don’t get angry or fearful, look at it as a great opportunity to get in touch with what truly matters to you, what is calling to you, and what direction you want to move in, once we are on the other side of this challenge.

We are fortunate to live in an area with so much green space around. Wednesday weather will be warm and sunny, so get out for a walk! We have Jamaica Pond, the Emerald Necklace Greenway, Arnold Arboretum, and Franklin Park surrounding our district, and Pierre Lamont Bike Path in the SW Corridor Park in the middle of JP, if you’re short on time or heading to the T. Plenty of room to walk alone or maintain a safe distance from friends. Hug a tree, and sit at the base of it. You’ll feel grounded and calm. Nature heals.
.
.
.
Plus we have typical New England weather extremes. SNOW, and a “wintery mix” are coming early Thursday morning! Then Friday temps soar to the 70’s with1-3″ of rain! (We need the precipitation..the crocuses are thirsty!) But in general, we’ll have seasonable early Spring weather after that. So take advantage while you can, practicing your “social distancing” method (stay 6′ to 10′ away from each other). Everything will be fine. Eventually.
.
.
.
It is extremely important that we all follow protocol, so we can nip this pandemic in the bud, and enjoy our Spring and Summer.
.

Walking outdoors is keeping me sane right now. If yoga is more your style, JP Centre Yoga is live-streaming all classes on a sliding scale donation basis, $0-$20. Gyms are closed, but even a staircase can be used for cardio. YouTube has plenty of stretching and exercise videos, and you can cast them to your TV or phone. Of course there are movies, guided meditations and hobbies that can be enjoyed at home, easing stress and giving our busy minds a break from the breaking news cycle.
.
.
.
Many local restaurants are making takeout and/or delivery available with reduced hours. Keep in mind, most waitstaff and bartenders, like many in the service industry and those of us working in Complementary Alternative Medicine, have little or no work at all, and thus, no real income coming in, especially those who depend on tips and some of us Independent Contractors. Check websites to see if there are funds set up that you can donate to, or perhaps buy a Gift Certificate to help keep your favorite bartender or small business entrepreneur afloat.
.
.
.
We are all in this together. Things might briefly get a bit worse, but they will definitely get a lot better on the other side of this.
.
.
.
Set your fear aside, shake your finger at it and tell it “Thank you, but you are obsolete!” Drop into your heart and count your Blessings every time you catch yourself grousing about an inconvenience. Remember how well we have it, compared to much of the world. Watch after your loved ones. These days are precious, and having time to connect with family (even if by Skype), time do those neglected projects and hobbies, time to meditate, time to read that book, time to amp up your self-care routine…all of this is a gift!
.
.
.
Our lives may never be the same, but then, it is through change that we grow, find clarity, become resourceful, recognize our vulnerability, demonstrate strength in adversity, and draw on our humility to persevere, survive, breakthrough, and thrive!
.
.
.
Breathe easy and go lightly.
Check in with each other.
Let love be your guide. ❤

        • Actually, I noticed in other places I had been spelling it correctly..so I must have been pretty tired when I posted that..but then, I stay up all night a lot due to fascination with some of the topics..and not having work or having to be anywhere lately

          • I misspell words or leave out words in sentences all the time and I’m writing a book!
