No sooner we are awake we reach for our phone to check for the latest news even before giving our partner lying next to us a kiss good morning. Every day we are exposed to world events, they play out in front of us on social media, the radio, and good old fashioned tv whether we like it or not.
And our exposure to those events can change how we act. And the way we act can impact how we feel. Think back to a time when you received some bad news and how it affected you?How we act will impact how we feel. We have no control outside of our body to the events that play out in front of us. How you choose to respond and act to those events is entirely within your control. As human beings, we are the only specie on the planet that can make choices.
In these uncertain times, this is the perfect time to show our true values, to give of ourselves in a meaningful way with no self-reward, show kindness to go beyond the call of duty not because we have to but because we choose to. You are where you are in life because of the choices you made. And a conscious choice to make changes empowers you forever; it creates a new platform to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life full of possibility.
Now more than ever, we have the choice to make a difference to connect with our fellow human beings. Not because we have to but because we choose to. In these uncertain times, the choices we make can be the difference between life and death. Be responsible and stay safe.
*We stand on the brink – or, for the less optimistic, stand somewhere in the grim middle – We must all play our part. The rush of NHS volunteers in this country is incredibly heartening. But the super-rich – people and organisations – have a moral responsibility to match the efforts of those going above and beyond on a micro-level. The money donated now by those with access to billions will save lives and livelihoods. This is not an argument for communism, just decency.
One of the indirect consequences of this miserable period is that it allows consumers to quickly separate the good (least worst?) guys of capitalism from the bad and genuine wholesome intention from opportunistic PR grabs. Wetherspoons and Sports Direct have suffered vehement public backlashes, their owners appearing as Dickensian factory owners without the redemptive narrative arc.
