I shared this on social media last week on April 1st. I felt like it was worth sharing here also as a reminder to us all.
Most of us were not who we wanted to be on March 1st. Then we were given an opportunity to change.
Self Quarantine or mandated quarantine eliminates a lot of distractions we have lived with and accept as necessary. Separating ourselves from these distractions creates an opportunity to change. We now have entered into a chrysalis. The person that comes out in the end of this WILL be changed.
Some will come out with bright, beautiful colors like the monarch butterfly. Some will emerge similar to the common dust moth.
During this time, and all times, we have the choice of what feeds our mind, body, and soul. We should choose based on purpose rather convenience. What we consume will change us. These changes will influence the rest of our year, and potentially the rest the of our lives.
If you are quarantined with others like your family or children, you are responsible for their changes also. You can choose to be the leader to make everyone better because of this situation, or you can do nothing and reap the alternative.
Now with more time apart from society only questions remain. Not how long? Not why? The questions that matter most are:
What knowledge will I gain?
What path will I choose?
What colors do I want to display when this ends?
Who will I become?
It’s now April 1st, and you have a choice.
I wish you and your family the best during this time. – Jonathan
