Hilary BrittonIt is both!
Here's why….Crisis means it is the worrying time in which things are very uncertain, difficult or painful. It is a time in which action must be taken to avoid a disaster or a breakdown. Epidemic is based on how many people are affected. A substantial amount of our population is being greatly affected by our economic downfall. It is a disease. Disease can mean many different things. Our negative mindset is creating disease in our financial, spiritual, physical and mental well-being. Experiencing ourselves or our loved ones losing jobs, homes, and their livelihoods have made a negative impact on how we view the world.
How about people's reaction? To name a few…people are turning to death, substance abuse, alcoholism, depression, exercise, weight loss/gain, divorce, marriage, child rearing, job change, and crime. Is this what we have succumb to; looking outside of our own beings for the answers? For those who are taking harmful measures to deal with life; get off the small engine thinking. Do you think that this has happened for a reason bigger than what we really see? More than just the tangible items like money, food, shelter, loss of job, etc… ?
We are put on this planet to think BIG!
Now what can we do to change this? We are in what I would consider the black or white time period. The choices you make today are a deciding factor for your tomorrow. It is as simple as this, do you want to be accountable for your life or not? You have been given the choices and abilities to make a difference. So I ask you, are you going to wake up and pay attention? Are you going to start living consciously, if you aren't already? Think about this for a moment…. What contribution do you want to leave in this lifetime? What is your legacy? What do you want people to remember most about you? What will your obituary say about your accomplishments? Remember think BIG! Write down your answers to the following questions. It may surprise you. It is in those answers in which lies the plan for your future.
The choices you have made in the past are over. If you are one of those who thinks you made poor choices, guilt will not erase the past. Forgiveness without forgetting is key! Learn from the experiences. This is your opportunity to make life altering changes in your life or in the life of someone else. Take action!
So now you have decided to get your head out of the sand, how do I do this? You have already done a lot of the work. It is in the choice to live a different path that we shift the negative energy into positive. We are open to the world and all its glory. We are not overcoming fear; we are overcoming lack of knowledge. Once you start walking the path of life you want to live it will get easier. Start with one task. However slight or great is not the point. It is in your decision to do the task that is the point.
