Twilight Zoning

People are starting to go back into offices & kids are going back to school. The traffic has picked back up and is almost as bad as it “used to be”, before COVID-19 in March 2020 changed the world. People keep saying things like “when everything goes back to normal”. But when they go back to the office, and supposedly going back to normal, I have heard many say that it hasn’t felt the same as it once did.

For one thing, the whole world realized that the majority of the work force could do everything they needed to remotely. And if they couldn’t, they were forced to figure out a solution to it. And they did. So many new ways of doing things were being innovated, that 2020 may well be the most creative time period in the history of the world. That creative energy permeated and sent creative energy vibes to everyone, everywhere in the world. There was collaboration and new friends were made, also all over the world.

2021 hasn’t been quite that innovative. The creative energy that was expanding everyone’s minds in 2020 has been put into all the projects it needed to be put into. As a result, I feel the stagnant energy and boredom shining through. People are becoming restless and looking for the next “new” wave of energy. Everyone is thinking that going back to normal will solve this restless energy, but the truth is that it won’t. Because the situation will never be the same as it once was, and most importantly, YOU will never be the same as you once were.

We were all forced to take a look at what wasn’t serving us in our lives by being isolated and learning to be so flexible with all the mandates and changes that each day held for us. All of us have shifted and changed for an entire year and a half, and expecting things to be exactly as they were when we left is almost like an episode of the Twilight Zone. A lot of things changed in 1.5 years and we can’t just decide that the way forward is to technically move backward. Or we can I guess, but that isn’t very productive.

So, my question for you today is, what are you going to do? What is 2022 going to look like for you? Are you going to try and find a new project or way of living that suits the new you? Or are you happy to try to forget that the last 1.5 years even happened? Are you feeling that stagnant energy and boredom in your own life? What can you do to mitigate it?
