For sure we are living in a tumultuous time but it is NOT the end of the world!!
Let go of the thought that with disasters at every turn, the world is crashing and burning and will soon cease to exist.
Look back in history and you will see that in spite of immense disruptions, the world continued on. People figured it out and bravely marched on.
For instance at the height of the plague from 1346 to 1353, it’s estimated that 60% of Europe’s population was annihilated. This was catastrophic, but it was also the catalyst for Europe’s modernization. The Black Death destroyed the feudal system, which cleared the way for the merchant system. This then created the middle class, which is the backbone of all modern economies.
Additionally, the profound social, economic, cultural, and religious changes led to the emergence of the Renaissance. The thoughts, ideas, and discoveries made during the Renaissance are some of the building blocks of our modern society and culture.
Humankind managed to slog through The Black Death and they came out strong and energetic on the other side.
If they can do it, we can too!
We CAN muscle through the pandemic’s disruption and all the civil unrest and we CAN become stronger, more vibrant, and we CAN live our soul-prospering life as a result.
Let go of disaster thinking and open your mind to how you can use your immense talents and gifts in new and exciting ways. Hold onto your hat because soon new doors will burst open for you!
You can do it! We can do it!
Yes I Can!
