Moments Of Mindfulness: Back to Normal?

So, today I am intrigued by the term “back to normal”. Apparently, a lot of folks are in a big hurry to get there. However, science tells us, humans experience time moving forward. Perhaps the answer lies beyond the words. Perhaps normal is code for what we knew, and back refers to when we were comfortable and in control? What do you think?

Regardless, our nation’s normal contains a variety of inconvenient truths. We have veterans who fought to preserve our beautiful lifestyles living in homes made of cardboard. We have children who not only go to school to learn but to receive the only food available to them each day. For many, addiction is a life skill. And we cannot seem to escape making critical human resource decisions based on the color of skin rather the content of character. Is this the best we can do?

Of course not! This crisis has created an opportunity to rethink, reimagine, and reposition ourselves into a healthier and more hopeful new normal. Real change happens when “I” becomes in reality, “US”. Together we can move mountains.  We are smart enough to redesign our food supply chain to effectively transfer the abundant amounts of food thrown away daily to those for whom hunger is constant. We are smart enough to repurpose surplus well-built empty buildings into affordable housing. We should better compensate, respect, and support teachers to whom we entrust our future 7 hours a day during the school year. And we must design and deliver a mental health support system for our healthcare workers who will inhabit that dark space called PTSD as a result of their commitment to us.

I hope as we take off our masks and can safely hug, we unashamedly share smiles of survival and celebrate the healing power of touch. I hope we have learned the difference between busy and important. And I hope we embrace authenticity, vulnerability, and what love can do.

In the meantime, walk in your worthiness, know that fear and faith cannot coexist, and that you are amazing just as you are. Oh, and I forgot, toilet paper is back!

    Until next time, remember,
  • You are not alone.
  • You are not your circumstances.
  • You have everything within you to live a purpose-filled life.
