I can overcome the fear in any situation
Right now, I feel fearful. I am fearful for the economy and my own financial stability. I am fearful for when this coronavirus thing is all over and what my life and future will look like.. I feel like my mind has been spinning for days.
The province of Alberta announced its re-launch strategy, a safely staged COVID-19 recovery plan to re-launch its economy the other day and since, I have actually felt MORE fearful than I have this entire isolation period. Truthfully, I’m not afraid of catching covid. But I am fearful for what happens after I return to work. I work in the restaurant industry and working in a restaurant that is only running at 50% capacity will not provide a liveable income.. I am certain that it will be much less than what the Canada Emergency Response Benefit Relief has been. But while I am fearful of the uncertainty that lies ahead, I know that this is a necessary step towards getting life back to “normal”.
I’m not really sure what will happen in the next 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years and I admit that makes me feel fearful. But I believe that when my fear stems from worry or doubt, it may be the eye opener that I might need in order to see things from a different perspective, potentially acting as a catalyst for positive or necessary change in our life. I am fearful that my life will return to being unfulfilled and not lead with passion, but I am so thankful that I have been given this time to develop this website and focus on things that give me purpose.
For the month of May (and all months going forward), I give myself permission to trust that I can overcome the fear in any situation.
