I am, generally speaking, a walking-talking positive attitude, and I want to rest easy with a sense of knowing what will happen, and that we will all be thriving. I confess I don’t have the comfort right now – but I wish for it with all my heart. The practical side of me recognizes that flexibility, creativity, innovation will likely be crucial to success for anyone of any age a year from now.
The future will come.
Can we all agree on that at least?
A year from now, things will likely be very different than they are today.
Can we all agree on that too? (if unsure, ask yourself if things are different now than they were a day ago, a week ago, a month ago, or a year ago?).
Where am I going with this?
It might seem cliché or like something you’ve heard before – but consider its interpretation should be different now – for everything in your home, office, closet, agenda, and to-do list, discard it if it isn’t going to be important a year from now.
If something will, for sure, be crucial next year, hang on to it – guard it with care.
Money, things, laws, economies, governments, trade, and science – too little, or too much – will always cause us grief, and in the coming year, we will see some head-spinning events. What we can influence, that won’t change unless we let it – is how we treat people.
A virus of financial tornado of events won’t change who we are, how we are, and how important we are to each other.
My only prediction of which I feel certain of for a year from now, is that we will be more interdependent and reliant on each other than ever – in part because we need to, but more so because we want to.
Huh. Control. Right now the only thing I can control is my reaction to my circumstances. Powerful lesson that had me reaching out to a friend who has lived through more than most.
