Burping along with Part II of Things You Can’t Control.

Let’s dive right in, shall we?

If others follow the rules of social distancing

It’s infuriating, I know…

…. looking out your window and seeing people blatantly disregarding the suggestions made by experts at the top of their field.

If you’re anything like me, you probably feel compelled to break free from your home just to give ’em a piece of your mind (from the recommended 2 meter distance, of course) — but what’s that really gonna do?

It’s not your job to fix stupid — or ignorant — people.

But what you can do is make sure you’re following the rules yourself.

That’s your only job right now.

When you see other people breaking the rules, let it go and then redirect that energy into self-praise that you’re staying safe and doing the right thing.

How long this will last

That’s the big Q right now, isn’t it?

When will all of this chaos and pandemonium end?

Truth is…

No one really knows — best we can do is make assumptions.

And you what happens when we assume, right?

Look, if we’re being honest with ourselves…

This could last weeks. It could last months. And the implications of everything that’s happened could most certainly last for years.

That’s not something within your control.

So let go of your need to know and let yourself surrender to the uncertainty.

Instead of wasting precious energy wondering when all of this will be over — redirect it into something else.

Something rewarding… something productive… something good.

You can’t control when this will end…

… but you can control what you do in the meantime.

That’s it for Part II of Things You Can’t Control — but we’re not done yet.

Meet me here again tomorrow for Part III.

Halt right there!
