We are living at a crucial moment. How we act now will be of vital consequence for generations to come.
Do you feel daunted by climate change and what it means for those following in our footsteps?
Are you immobilized by fear or incapacitated by overwhelm?
Or do you find yourself charting the same ole course only to achieve the same ole outcomes on your brief path through life?
Navigating now requires unprecedented change. We can either dig our heels in and resist like heck or open to the vast array of possibilities that riding this sea wave of change might open up for us.
When we sense something might be required of us it’s normal to hunker down and try to stay the familiar course. But what is that course exactly? Is it the one of your choosing? Does it align with who you are and what you came here to do?
Are you living your best life? Fulfilling your soul purpose? Or do you find yourself ticking off the weekdays hoping the weekend offers a reprieve from the monotony of a life you didn’t create with intention?
COVID gifted us with a slower pace and fewer choices. Did you make the kind of shifts you imagined you would if ever given the gift of a slowed down clock?
Or have you returned to the prior pace by default because you didn’t have a clear enough new vision with a mapped out plan to get you there?
As difficult as now can feel, we were made for this time. Like a birthing mum, we have unlimited power within us to meet the challenge of this moment to birth our planet anew.
Surely we are meant to do more than just survive. We are here to shine like the lights that we are and THRIVE! And in our thriving, our planet has the best chance of thriving too!
None of us know how much time we have left on the proverbial clock of our lives. The best time to live full out is right now. If we don’t do what we came here to do, who will do it for us? Who will be our best self if we won’t?
Gandhi, MLK, Mother Theresa, Thich Nhat Hanh and many others encountered impossible odds and overcame them. They were fully human like the rest of us. But they each raised their hand to say yes to doing their part no matter what. Their vision and purpose were crystal clear. They knew what was theirs to do and they persevered. We remember them as some of the ‘greats’ but during much of their lives they were ordinary people who persisted toward their vision for a better world in extraordinary ways regardless of who was or wasn’t taking notice.
What is your vision for a better world? What is your vision for a thriving planet? Who do you feel called to be and what do you feel called to do to make your vision a reality?
By the time you finish reading this post precious time to act will have passed. Contemplation and reflection precedes powerful focused action. What are you contemplating and reflecting on in the gift of idle moments you might have? Or are you filling the void with mindless stimulation? Are you making every moment count…because it matters a whole lot that you do. It matters for our youth and for the most vulnerable among us who will be impacted most by the slow moving freight train that is climate change. But first and foremost, it matters for you!
I cannot be you nor do the work you came here to do. You cannot be me nor do the work that I came here to do. But we both THRIVE when we do the work we came here to do…and when we support one another in doing it!
If these questions inspire you to take a deeper dive into what it might look like for you to thrive while supporting our planet in thriving too, I’m happy to support you in going there.
If you have a vague sense for the work you feel called to do in support of a thriving planet, I can help you get more clear and map out an action plan with a thriving you at the heart of it.
If you know what lights you up and energizes you from the inside out and want to get clear on how to align that with a thriving planet, I can help with that too!
