Nothing Normal About This New Normal

So…  This is what they are calling the new “normal”.  I simply refuse it!  Not in a way that defies reality, but in a way that won’t qualify it as normal.  Let’s be truthful, there is nothing very “normal” about the situation most humans are finding themselves in.  Self-isolated, confined to being in our homes day in and day out.  Many of us unable to continue working because our jobs have been deemed non-essential.  Lucky are those who are able to work remotely and maintain their livelihood.  Too many are now completely dependent on government relief programs.

This new and temporary way of being is not all bad though.  Children are home and once busy parents are enjoying this extra time with their little ones.  Families are reconnecting in ways that had gotten lost in the every day rush of duties and responsibilities.  People are going out for walks to escape the confinement.  Life has slowed down.  And with the slower pace of life comes an internalization.  We are all turning inwards and getting in touch with what really matters to us.

A slower pace, however, doesn’t imply there should be stagnation.  As a matter of fact, this down time is a perfect opportunity for growth.  Now is a time gifted to us to go inwards and evaluate our lives as we once knew them and to reflect on where we want our lives to be when we emerge from this confinement.

No one knows quite how long this phase of our reality will last.  But rather than consider this temporary situation our new normal; perhaps it would be wiser to consider it to be a stepping stone towards the life we truly want.

During this time, this gift of time that we have been given, we can begin to take the steps that will allow us to restructure our lives to align with the vision of the life we truly aspire to be living.

This is by no means a new normal, but rather a phase of transition that, if wisely taken advantage of, can catapult us into something greater than we could ever imagine.  Now is not a time to lay back and rest.  Although some self-care is wise and justified.  Now is a time for self-reflection, self-development and action.

May Baydoun did all the “right” things and followed all the “right” steps. But she knew deep down that there was more to life than getting an education, getting married, having children... There had to be more than just the cards you are dealt. Watching her children play, she overheard her daughter saying “... just like mommy”. The sudden realization that her children, her daughters especially, would grow up to be just like mommy frightened her deeply. She was the role model of what a woman can be in this life and at that time, May wasn’t satisfied with who she was nor what she stood for. She was nothing more than her mother had shown her to be... A woman in her thirties, married with young children putting her dreams and ambitions on a permanent hold to raise a family. In that moment, she fully understood that she could not expect her children to become more or better than she was willing to be herself. It was a harsh reality check; and in that moment, she made the decision she would become the best version of herself she could be because she HAD to be the best possible role model for her children. That powerful decision, her awakening, meant that she could no longer accept the average life she had led up until that point. She set out on a wild journey of deep self-discovery. Not only of who she was, but who she wanted to be and how to become that woman who had that life. Along the way, she made the discovery of the law of attraction and suddenly her whole life made sense. The good luck... The bad luck... The past decade of her life. It all made sense. She had created it all. And if she could create it, then she could dis-create it and re-create something new. She began testing the theory and in no time was proven right. Fully trusting the Universe, she allowed herself to be led on the journey. She has had the beautiful blessing of learning from so many great thought leaders and piecing together the many pieces of life’s intriguing puzzle. Over a decade later, she has discovered her life purpose, and is living it fully. Now that the student has become a master, she teaches others the principles that have led to her radical life transformation and how they too can leverage (or hack) the Universe to get anything they want... without breaking any of the laws!
