09/03/20 : The Power of One – It Makes A Difference
One Thing at a Time; One Moment at a Time; One Step at a Time; One Day at a Time
It’s easy to become overwhelmed, especially with all we’ve been through in 2020. The newness and nostalgic-like feelings of being at home 24/7 during COVID have long since worn away. We’ve moved through several new norms during these last 7-8 months. We’ve gone from being strictly inside, all the time (unless you were an essential worker), to being released to go out, to being told to be inside again, to its okay, kind of, to go outside again but we’re told to take extreme safety precautions.
But, still it’s kind of weird. Although life, ad we knew it, suddenly came to a screeching halt, it also kept going, at the same time. We’ve lived in 2 strange new dichotomies at the same time. Living life as we’ve never before experienced but we still had to live in the “new” now of the moment.
We’ve been pulled in different directions. Parents suddenly became homeschool teachers. Loved ones in convalescent homes couldn’t be visited anymore. Extreme situations and circumstances threatened to derail our normality, completely. The overwhelm would be eminent.
When it all comes down to it, the reality is there are some things we alone have control over, although things may seem otherwise. We have the Power of One. The power to just do one thing at a time. One thing at a time, one moment at a time, one step at a time, one day at a time. All those “ones” will add up to something great and will bring peace. Give yourself permission to just do that one thing. Go for it. And, remember, just BE.
BE. Inspired. Purposed. Ready.
