Currently, we have all experienced a sense of being overwhelmed and confused with everything we’re hearing and seeing daily. It’s easy to let not only our fear and panic take over our thoughts and how we live, but others as well. I encourage you always to stand strong in your personal faith and seek out positive influence. Who you listen to, people you work with, friends you spend time with all end up influencing your thoughts and actions. Now, more than ever, we need to take account of who feeds us and who depletes us.
Choices, we make these every day. We choose our attitude for the day. We choose our work ethic for the day. What we choose and how we do it, goes on and on. I ask you, are your daily choices out of fear, panic, confusion? Or are your daily choices based on optimizing the opportunities around you, seeking truth and balance, being a ray light? Yes, we are in uncertain times and new territory, but that doesn’t mean you have to buy into the chaos. You can and have the right to choose the calm.

I also encourage you to build your relationships, get outside and enjoy the fresh air. A strong mind is followed by having a strong body. They need each other and they don’t work without each other. Now is a great time to learn how to become more adaptable, find new ways to stretch yourself and most importantly grow from positivity.
I look back at times in my life when I could have been crippled by fear, times when a harvest never came in, times when money dried up, moments when I faced opponents that were bigger, faster, stronger…but it was my choice in those times to either show up and have faith or retreat in fear. It’s during these times that we are able to learn new processes, conquer our fears and become stronger. These are the moments where we are able to build and refine our character as well as learn how to work with and help others.
Unfortunately, we can’t look into the future to warn ourselves of what to do or how to react. But we can help our future selves by learning from our past. We can learn how to keep fear and panic in check. Knowing who in our lives thrive off of fear and panic and keeping them at a distance. Learning how to calm our mind and evaluate before we react.
I encourage us all, to keep living fearlessly!
