In these crazy times we are all living in, it is so easy to be scared, to complain, blame, and remain in the same state that we were in before Corana became a thing other than beer. Watching all the insanity on the news and in your newsfeed is enough to scare the strongest and toughest person out there if they aren’t careful. It’s time for many of us to step back and to see the forest for the trees and use our own insight and wisdom in order to keep the peace we so desperately need to make it through.
I am going to challenge you to look past your fears. I am going to challenge you to open up your eyes to the creativity that lies within and I am going to challenge you to stay out of your comfort zone because most of us have been pushed out of it already. What does it look like to push past your fears? It looks like only allowing so much information to pass within your eye and ear gates. It looks like instead of saying “why me? to say “try me!” It looks like standing for the good of humanity regardless of what others do or say. These are all things that you have control over and should make it your business to practice until it becomes perfect.
Creativity is something we all possess and it comes in all shapes and forms. If you say that you are not creative then don’t know your true worth and should possibly enlist the help of a coach because we all have something to contribute. It’s time to tell those lies you’ve believed so much and for so long to go straight to hell where they belong. I don’t care if it’s putting together an outfit, organizing a garage or closet, to singing a song, writing a book, creating a recipe, or coming up with a better solution to something that already exists you have something to give so give it and stop copping out.
Since we have for the most part been pushed out of our comfort zones, stay out of your comfort zones. Stay uncomfortable! Some may be asking, “why do you say that Coach Shannon?” I say this because times are NOT going back to the normal that you are used to so if you keep the same mindset as you had before all this happened you are going to be like a square peg trying to fit in a round space… NOT GONE HAPPEN! It’s going to make you feel defeated and lost and there is no time for all that. Ask yourself, “what have I said I was going to do when I have the time?” Now is the time to do just that. We have nothing, but time. Don’t be lazy!
Don’t let this season in time pass you by! Now is the time to rise up and do something different. It’s time to try something new and Live in the midst of the old passing away and the new being birthed. Press on my sisters and brothers and leave your stamp in this world. You can do whatever you make your mind up to do… so do it!
