So many of us are falling into victim mode. We are complaining and focusing on what we are not able to do. We are only focusing on the terrible experiences in our life and not keeping our eye out for how we can serve.
I get it. As a sign language interpreter, I have not worked since March 9th because of shelter in place. I also have not been able to present as a life coach.
BUT I have been given the opportunity to watch my niece Emma. She is beautiful, and she is perfect. Because she lives so far away, I would not have the time to bond and spend time with her. But because of this tragic pandemic, I get to fill my days with this beautiful, baby girl.
I know we are having a hard time with COVID-19, and yes, everything is different, but we could look at our situation from another perspective.
Instead of being in the victim mode, we could step back and ask, “What is there for me to do?”
For you, it might be to make a phone call or wearing a mask. Only you know the answer.
When we contribute, it takes us out of the victim mode and put us in a more peaceful state of mind.
So, what is there for you to do today?
