What’s next? What’s going to happen? How is it going to be once we are out of this situation? What will be the new normality? What world will we find, when we will wake up from this nightmare?
Conversations are full of questions, lately. Questions to which I have no answers at all. Sure, the prediction game is an appealing one, at least when it’s done with people with a positive attitude. But it feels driven more by the desire to escape the present than by a genuine will to create the future.
I prefer another quest instead. One driven by different questions. Who do I want to be? How do I want to show up? Tomorrow, sure. But also today. What can I do today, right now, here to be that person? What would that person do in this situation?
I’ll be honest, it’s not an easy quest. I get lost often. Confused between who I am, who I want to be, and who I think I should be. But I keep asking and searching. Every day a new opportunity to shine a bit more light, to advance another tiny step.
It helps me stay grounded in this uncertain time.
