Roses have thorns or, do thorns have roses, you know why?
Sometimes crisis becomes the greatest blessings, they carry transition & brings progress. It is in crisis when we introspect, invent, discover & work to rise. Who overcome crises outdoes self without being overcome.
Sure you will agree that with the passage of the year 2021, humanity witnessed the worst catastrophe of the century. We are now a generation looking forward to celebrations with hope, a world with no pandemics, astrocytes, wars, climate crises or poverty.
Well, with new viruses and their variants, the red alert over the climate crisis, countries overgoing terrorism and power rages? Well as generation world went through much? And so we endured much too in the year 2021 and are ready to welcome the new year 2022 with added strength, being more transilient, exapted and antifragile?
The truth is, the toughest seasons can transform everything and nurture you to face the next level sprouting new beginnings. Adversities are the opportunities to break through, to break free, breaking boundaries pushing the mind from finite mindset to infinity.
Million went through trauma due to covid, but then trauma taught the generation the coping mechanism, the adversities that became the opportunity to thrive. Do you know post-traumatic growth is a choice, its an alternative to post-traumatic stress?
The future is around the corner and what’s coming nobody knows. And the safety net is Grace Gratitude Hope. Let the silver lining shines brightly ‘n we choose to cherish whatever is served, being humble & gracious. Celebrate being together wherever you are amid the valley or over the mountain top being hopeful.
As individuals fought the battles for lives in the war zone, countries forced people to migrate. Deaths of near and dear ones due to covid, loss of jobs. Children as a complete generation lost out of social connection, the happy growth aspect of safety & security of social touch.
Whatever personal crises you have been through i would like to encourage you and urge you to never give up on hope. Believe the best days are yet to come, & what let them in is Humility and faith in yourself and the Divine Supreme. The Universe is the energy of love energy that is within us and around us, an energy that connects us all and empowers us, and has one purpose, a purpose to create.
Psychology explains post-traumatic growth (PTG). The theory explains the transformation in onces personality and behaviour can happen post-trauma to a transcendent level. It was developed by psychologists Richard Tedeschi, PhD, and Lawrence Calhoun, PhD, in the mid-1990s that established people who endure psychological struggle following adversity can often see positive growth afterwards.
The growth: an outcome of a positive mindset amid the crises, not giving up and coming up better in life. Perhaps, relicense the top quality of successful people. As said: “The oak fought the wind and was broken, the willow bent when it must and survived”.
Pain and sufferings are part and parcel of life, and nay meant to destroy us but to develop transcendence as a black swan. Yes, be thankful, even for the adversities with a hopeful heart that light is at the end of the tunnel.
On June 19th, 1999 I got hit by a van while taking a walk. As I lay unconscious in the hospital, the docs debated amputating my right leg and decided it could stay, on a trial basis. I got better. Every day of the 20 years since has been a gift, said Stephen Kind in his tweet sharing out come of positive mindset and gratitude.
A speck of dust that’s what we are in this universe. There are 2 trillion galaxies, ours is one. Billions of planets, ours is earth just one of them, millions of species over the earth, we are just one of them and billions of people and you & I are among the living.
So rejoice and be thankful, for Gratitude is the essence of life.
Of course, rejoice for we are among the living. Practice gratitude for the moment, it activates the blessings. Gratitude is the magic that brought us here and will lead us forward from generation to generation.
Of course, we must also grieve for that is a natural emotion and for those who lost loved ones, their sufferings are difficult to overcome. But that is also true, noting is impossible what we’ve lost all the ways we used to do everything and how much we’ve given up in terms of our experiences and our connections.
Of course, shout out loud “Cheers and be merry”, for you are the black swan, yes, we all are. Being alive is in itself is an extraordinary piece of good luck, a miracle that happens to mankind every morning and people fail to recognise.
If you are struggling now, know as you are working over your life developing your coping mechanism. Know you are nay helpless but have choices.
First, we can adapt, making changes to ourselves to deal with circumstances. Perhaps you’ve had to brush up your life by your choice. Isn’t exapted you are already, behold the crises kick evolution that brings a shift in the function of a trait. COVID crisis has induced Social Distancing as a subconscious social behaviour that is transforming the much important and basic need of the people; public transportation, now there’s no space for compact space & social distancing is mandated. Right?
Second, when you have faith that you’re a powerful creator, you can change your world. You have to understand & accept that you are the creator; you create your environment, you are not the product of your environment. Perhaps you have already achieved this milestone. Have you not yet organized a charity drive to feed the hungry in your neighbourhood or pulled together a musical group to spread socially-distanced cheer to the elderly? Yes, transilient you are.
The essence of life is in being transient. The people and material possessions that you adore so, and everything close to you shall perish with time. Generations will go and new shall come only to evolve, the crisis being the foundation transforming you stronger while you are surrounded by yours doing the thing for them serving the society and the community.
Finally, believe you are antifragile. Nothing can kill the will to live, the light of the Divine. Setbacks may hurt you, they may derail you, maybe tough times will break you down, but only to make you stronger. You as an individual or as collective as a generation will bounce back only to rise. You may have moved to obtain a new job or ended a relationship that failed to overpass the test of times.
The times that reinforces the choices, though not by the will and choice have the ways we can express our autonomy even in the face of long odds or significant challenges.
We cope, we learn and we choose the harbingers of happiness for where we’ll go from here. You are no ordinary person you are creating History. When the COVID Crises is over, as a generation you are going to come out better, being more; +Transilient +Antifragile +Exapted

So true, we all have our FEARS that makes us Vulnerable, but then to a leader hope is persistent and the fear, failure OR “glory” feels the same.

Don’t compare yourself with others, be a better version of yourself. Cherish ‘n apprehend PositiveVibes, a portion of Divine. Be Light that brightens space, a touch that heals, a colourful vibe, fragrance to breath, a reason to believe, a purpose that creates life
A flower among weeds, it marks its path being determinant & loyal to its calling. Positivity fuels from within & come from self: love, care, esteem, worth, awareness & self-knowledge.
