Chaos. From simple day to day inconveniences to situations of pandemic proportions.
Though we might define chaos a bit different, the impact is likely similar:
-feeling out of control
For most of us, chaos is an undesired state. What if we were a little bit more curious about chaos?
Chaos can often be avoided or minimized. However it can also emerge unexpected and catch us off guard, vulnerable and possibly stunned because it's beyond our control [e.g. pandemic].
Regardless, we do not need to be victims of chaos, simply sitting in it, allowing it to grow confusion and exhaustion. We get to decide what our next right steps are towards creating clarity and calm….steps to conserving energy for ourselves and those we impact.
What if chaos was viewed as a preparation, a prompt to sit up and take note of what could come next? I wonder if that chaordic feeling, you know, the one that somehow gives a glimmer of the chaos leading to order, is just what we need to lean into versus avoid, buffer, medicate or dismiss?
