Is it possible to have a life vision in these days of COVID-19 uncertainty?
As we are all in various stages of COVID-influenced opening-back-up and/or closing-down-again, we are faced with questions to ask ourselves:
- What do we actually want our lives to be, when we are fully at choice again?
- What pieces from our former “normal” do we want to pick back up?
- What pieces would we rather leave behind?
- What would we like to introduce into our lives that may be completely new?
We are being given an opportunity to do a reset, if we choose, albeit probably of the two-steps-forward-one-step-back variety.
I don’t know the answers to all of these questions. I am clear about some of them, and foggy about others.
And what I am even foggier about is how all the pieces will fit together, so I am not sure if it is possible to have a life vision right now.
But I do believe that it is helpful to ponder the questions, in a thoughtful and conscious way, even though it may feel very tentative and a lot “wobbly” right now.
It is that old adage that if you don’t know where you would like to go, you will surely end up somewhere else. And that paradox: plans are useless, but planning is essential.
Also, I always try to remember that if it’s not possible to have a vision for my outer life right now, I can have a vision for the person that I want to be.
What are the questions that you are living into right now?
