Isn’t this what we just needed?
There is a quote that says that life brings us the experiences that we need for us to grow. That there are no coincidences, nothing occurs by chance.
In some ways this crisis we are going through is no coincidence.
The past financial crisis had taught us to fight more to survive, be active, persevere, be resilient in always reinventing yourself to survive economically and socially.
This one is about stopping. Stopping and being able to slow down, breathe, reinvent the way we relate to others and go on with our work, with our careers.
There is a message for this world, for institutions and companies. There is a message for us.
To go back to essentials, to yourself, your life, your priorities, your real ambitions and desires.
These times allow us to rediscover who we are and what surrarrounds us, to become aware of our ability to adapt, to learn and to change our daily routines. This a time to become more curious about new things, to learn and test new things, new habits.
It is a luxury to be able to go on at your own rythm, your own pace. Have you managed to slow down?
What are these moments showing you? What are they reveiling about yourself?
