If 2020 has taught me anything thus far it is that I am able to adapt, fast. Being pushed out of my comfort zone, and let’s be honest, haven’t we all, has helped invite growth.
Here is what I have learned over the past few months:
Make a plan to avoid feeling completely helpless and being subjected to external and/or uncontrollable circumstances and adapt from there.
Keep doing what you are doing, stick to a routine as much as possible and refine/change as much as necessary.
Continue to have fun, smile and laugh.
Think and remain positive.
Take care of yourself. Be mindful of what you eat and how you spend your time.
Don’t take anything for granted and be kind.
In times of uncertainty managing expectations helps with experiencing happiness despite the challenge. After all, change is the only certainty in life. It depends on us whether we let it affect us or use it as an opportunity to grow.
