Feed Your Quarantined Soul
Hi everybody I’m Maggie O’Connor at Breakthrough MFT helping you reach your breakthrough moment.
I’ve been thinking so much about that saying, “…you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone…”
I’m hearing it everywhere, and I’m right there with you! ‘I didn’t appreciate this person even seeing them every day,’ ‘I didn’t appreciate the places I could go, the things I could do, the experiences I could have.’ Maybe I took a lot for granted.
Everybody is feeling this way; you are not alone.
I also hear from people, ‘You know, I was I was just on the verge – I was ready to do this thing, or get started with this thing, and now I can’t… because everything is shut down.’
While I might agree with you that you’re not going to be able to do it in the way that you thought you were going be able to do it but because this is taking much longer than we ever thought it would take, (and for good reasons!) We have to stop waiting for it to be over to feed our soul, to feed our hearts, even to stimulate our minds! So I challenge you to think about – what is the thing that you most want to do when you get out of this?
What do you want to taste?
Who do you want to see?
What do you want to feel?
Where do you want to go?
I encourage you to think about ways that you can do that in some form while staying quarantined, while staying safe. There’s so much out there online; we can’t go to the ballet, but we can see it onscreen, we can’t go to a concert but we can hear one… we can’t go to a different country but we can learn about it.
We can see people virtually…
We need to shift our thinking about this time about it being limiting, and recognize the opportunities it might present.
I’d love to hear from you about ways that you have taken your interests into the isolation of quarantine and been able to feed them! I love to hear where you’re challenged and maybe we can be helpful.
I suggest to you to meet me online and on social media – let me know what you’re struggling with and I can help. Let me know what inspires you and I will give it a ‘Like!’ I look forward to hearing from all of you.
I’m Maggie O’Connor hoping this helps you to “break on through.”
