Out of an abundance of caution for all during this COVID-19 Pandemic, I am conducting psychotherapy and life coaching sessions through secured online video.

In case you haven’t noticed … life has taken on a déjà vu quality – seemingly repeating itself over and over, and over.

There’s a movie – Groundhog Day – starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, that is about, in a way, what we’re currently experiencing: the day keeps repeating itself. In the movie, however, the character played by Bill Murray comes in as a jerk, then gets to replay that same day until he stops being such a jerk.
Unlike our lives, only he remembers that the day is repeated.

What’s kind of nice about the movie is that it gives the main character a lot of chances to change, allowing him to really get what isn’t working for him, and then gradually altering his attitude towards life and others, which then creates space for him to try new things.

That opportunity is open for us all just now – we have the time to see what isn’t working for us, and the space to try new approaches to see what works better.

Something that helps you prepare for opportunity:
The brain-changing benefits of exercise

and … in case that was uninspiring …
Why some people find exercise harder than others … and what to do about it

Quote of the Week 

“The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger–but recognize the opportunity..”
– John F. Kennedy
