And to all a good .....
I get it that our unemployment rate is high -- probably close to 20% in some states because those off the unemployment roles are not being counted. But without sounding like a PollyAnna, this also means that there is 80% employment. But don't you see and feel how the fear of loss is hampering everyone. Spending is down. People and businesses are holding tight. This only serves to prolong the down cycle. If there is no investment or opening to the awareness of cash flow, change cannot and will not occur.
I'm not suggesting that you spend yourself silly or in a foolish way. But please - know that all cycles comes to an end. For every down position, there is a replacing up position on it way. Let go of the fear, people! Trust in your ability to survive and survive well. Think and act with compassion and kindness to everyone around you. As we trust each other more, trust ourselves more, and with a knowing, proceed through these times, we will all be better for it.
Happy, happy holidays. Be safe. Enjoy your friends and family. Stretch. Live. Laugh. Release the fear.
