At 6:00am this morning a steady rain poured from the awnings hanging over the studio door.
I sat in my car in front of Kinetics and Kinetics Flow waiting for Kelly (our Thursday trainer) and Marcus (our Thursday yoga instructor) to go LIVE with their classes. I’d committed myself to tagging a few people on our live Facebook page who I knew needed to take class from their homes.
I was also prepared to offer some strong coaching energy to others who I knew were fighting themselves to just be up and moving.
Kelly and Marcus were doing a great job. I posted a few encouraging words, then drove off.
Full of energy, I headed to my usual Starbucks wanting to have a usual experience of sitting at my usual table in order to work on my usual administrative tasks.
The roads leading to the Starbucks were decently busy so I thought, yes! – this will be a usual day.
I crept up on the right but was slowed by the annoying traffic light that always gets me right before the “Bucks”. It was okay, I reminded myself, I was going to have a usual day.
The parking lot was sparse. Eigh! Everyone’s afraid of coming out. I said to myself, it’s all good Coronavirus. I’m taking all the precautions to stay strong and healthy so stay back. My desires are to keep on keeping on and have a usual day.
I got close to the cafe and saw this!
Talk about sheer disappointment, agitation and confusion about this whole Coronavirus situation!
Starbucks is NEVER closed. I sat for a bit deciding what my next move was going to be.
I made the decision, adapt I said to myself!
Create a new usual! Stay energized, lifted and strong.
I reiterated my commitments
-I will remain committed to my team!
-I will remain strong physically, mentally and emotionally!
-I will not let this consume me!
All of this happened before 7am this morning.
By now, you and I can see some truths in front of us.
The Coronavirus is taking a toll on all of us and we’re all concerned (especially as a small business).
We’re concerned about our families, our jobs, our bills, the economy all the extra work that needs to be done because of the Coronavirus. All of it.
And while It’s clear that the Coronavirus is taking a toll, what is also clear is, now is NOT the time to throw in the towel!
Now IS this time to pull together so that we are stronger than ever before.
Now IS the time to create a NEW USUAL!
