Empowering people to move forward
Counseling for adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
In the midst of Corona virus and quarantine, it's easy to focus on what we are missing and all the events that are now cancelled. In our small groups, we have been focusing on what is not cancelled...
Focusing on what we have is important during this time when we are feeling disconnected and deprived of our regular routines and activities.
It's good to see what is still here. Let's take this line of thinking one more step in that positive direction.
All of our good things that are not cancelled are more than just "not cancelled."
Positive things are all around us even when we feel deprived and isolated. As we are forced to slow down and stop the busyness of our regular routines, let's focus on the positives around us. What can we see now in this quieter time that we couldn't see when we were running our daily race? What opportunities are before us to embrace-if only for a short time?
I've said many time that I have so much to do that I could spend two weeks uninterrupted working on my house or in my office-I just might have that time soon. Now that it's upon me, maybe I'll take the time to get some projects done, but maybe I'll choose to enjoy more family game time or cooking together, or catching up on all those old movies I've wanted to show my daughter. Maybe we can laugh and talk for hours without worrying about the schedule and schoolwork being done before the next day.
Maybe this is a world-wide pandemic that will hurt us all-or maybe it's a gift of time and space so that we can appreciate the positive parts of life that never go away.
In the comments, reply with positives you see in your life right now to help us all focus on the light in the darkness.
