Before the world got to this place, and quarantine was not yet a reality, I was called to remain calm. I realized I was calm because I had experienced chaos before. I knew how to handle it. While investigating my peace, I went back to see what I had learned in the past 2-3 months, and how it prepared me for the current times. Here is what I learned:
~My belief in manifesting thoughts altered, I know now that my thoughts do NOT define me
~Love is not always given to me in my preferred way or my love language
~Faith (re-learned, cannot be shaken)
~Fear = living in the past
~Discovered what I did not want in a career
~The commitment behind "I love you"
~Admittance of wrongs and feelings; owning guilt; understand what needs to be changed or worked on
~Consistency in routines
~Transitions and how to transition
~Remind myself that I deserve the love and every wonderful thing that ever happens to me
~Do not have to be in control to stay grounded
These things are helping me keep my peace as I transition into moving my mom's house, loose a flow of income, and work on my goals while quarantined. Faith is the strongest one of all these lessons.
I felt called to share these things. Spirituality and all of my little rituals and practices are an important aspect of my life but I would not call myself a teacher. It's been on my mind though, so I'll share. Maybe someone could benefit, Maybe it's me.
