The past two years of living in Elsewhere have proven difficult and oh so debilitating for every age group. How has life in Elsewhere affected your wellbeing?
For yours truly, it has been a mix of fear, sadness, and anger. There’s the loss of control of many freedoms, and unfortunately, lethargy. The fact that Covid 19 was probably man-made exhibits to us that we are at the mercy of some scientists. I am aghast that there is a third variant rearing its head in Africa. Because I, like you, don’t want to continue living under a cloud of doom with a heaviness weighing me down.
Today for the second time, we were forced to cancel our dream trip to Rwanda. We were going to track the lifestyle of silverback gorillas – an experience we have our hearts set on. Then we were to be off to Tanzania and to the Island of Zanzibar. Well, hopefully, the third try down the road, will be the charm.
A FAMILY DISCUSSION
I know lethargy has encroached itself into my life as well as into my friends and family.
My Ultimate Concierge and I just returned from a trip to Arizona. We spent almost one week at my daughter’s home. On one occasion my granddaughter, daughter, and I talked about how physically and emotionally tired we’ve become. We joked that maybe the government put a lethargic drug into the vaccines.
The point I am making is that three generations of highly motivated women felt the same. I believe it is due to living for almost two years in Elsewhere. Therefore, since we can’t change it and we don’t want to join it, I suggest we fight it. We do this by empowering ourselves to get motivated in an area(s) that nourish us emotionally and physically.
Unfortunately, none of us can change the dynamics in Elsewhere. It has reared its ugly head in every age bracket. What can we control? … Our personal lives.
TYING IT ALL TOGETHER
You can do this by luxuriating in positive energy that will uplift you. You can begin by taking care of your physical and emotional health. This begins with acknowledging that you have to accept ‘everything’ you cannot change.
But how? Number one get into the mood. Toss negative words from your vocabulary – lethargic and sluggish – and replace them with spirited and energetic. Put on your red lipstick and write out an empowerment and enlightenment plan, tying all positive thoughts together.
A WORD OF ADVICE
Ultimately, you can achieve this when you commit to seeing things as they really are; not as you wish they were. It is hard work. I promise you will be rewarded when you move past what you cannot change. Concentrate on what you ‘can control’ because there is plenty of good stuff.
1. Come back with a bang, don’t retreat
2. Ask for what you want
3. Focus on being more present
4. Enlarge your world
6. Dwell on what you can control
7. Believe in your personal dynamic self
8. Trust your instincts
9. Sound the style sirens
10. Acknowledge all blessings
11. Raise your awe!
In conclusion, I am certain you are accomplished in many of the above areas to bring ‘the buzz’ back into your life.
My question is this: How are you utilizing your skills to revive the life you want for yourself, in Elsewhere? Or are you having trouble?
