GRATEFUL TO TURN THE CORNER
“Some years have questions. Some years have answers. ~ Zora Neale Hurston
Cabbie: “Where to?”
Bobby (in voice of exhaustion and defeat): “I just want to turn the corner.”
That’s a scene from the wild and wooly tv show, The Practice. The scrappy, beleaguered (and very cute!) protagonist, Atty. Bobby Donnell ran an always-on-the-ledge Boston law firm. In this moment, he’d walked away from a verbal altercation with an a-hole client, whom you knew he was only dealing with because this client’s money would help the firm. “I just want to turn the corner” was his plea to the universe for the battle to become easier and without compromise.
Rona has us all in this space, doesn’t it? Globally and personally. Either turning a corner or wanting to turn one. Maybe you’re like my girlfriend, who’s into strong “Corona-coping” (love this!) mode to deal with a job that’s even more stressful now. She’s starting each day with an online workout, sticking to work-stop boundaries and engaging in other self-care actions that keep her in ‘managing my life’ mode instead of feeling dragged by it.
Or like us. We’ve hit rona-ruts (friends losing people to the virus/reconsidering our chosen paths/missing relationship connections and experiences) and mindset coaches that we are, we know that reframing our thoughts and messaging to focus on what Is and what we can do, is The Path to calm…even joy... in the midst of personal and/or global crisis. Plus cooking, jigsaw puzzles, long walks, and holiday decorating also help!
In the best and the worst of circumstances, there is one constant:
CHOICE. We ALWAYS have a choice.
This year is full of questions. This week we pause to be thankful (something we believe in doing daily!). Focus on what’s going well. It’s finally feeling like we’re really going to turn a corner in getting past the corona virus and moving this country forward.
