The year 2020 has tested us in many ways. Some of those ways are obvious, while others might be a little subtler. And as we close out our focus on being more consistent this month, this week is an important one, for in a subtle way, we might have slipped on this concept a little bit.
One of the most important, yet most challenging, things we can do in life is to get to know ourselves. Can you feel the excitement and the weight of that statement? Well a big part of being consistent is first knowing who we are and how we show up everyday in the world.
We live in a culture of “instant” everything. We put a bag of corn kernels in the microwave and in less than 2 minutes we have a giant bowl of hot buttered popcorn. We use our smartphones and devices to order something on the Internet and it’s at our door within 24 hours.
We all know that things change and that, for most part, we aren’t the biggest fans of it. But, just as things change, there is a ton that stays the same. Fortunately, for all of us, the sun rises and sets each and every day. Our bellies love that we have Taco Tuesdays every week and pumpkin spiced lattes every autumn.
