So, here’s the thing.
I’ve ridden with rebels in the Congo with machine guns pointed at our heads (on bumpy roads to boot). I’ve worked handling critical traumas in refugee camps. I’ve delivered babies in emergent situations with only minutes to spare before a baby was at risk for brain damage or a mother bled to death.
I’ve been in a village where just over the hills was a disease called Marburg, that spread as easily as Ebola and was just as deadly. I’ve had gear fail on a climb and had to act quickly to keep me and my climbing partner safe. I’ve had a huge Himalayan-sized avalanche head our way and have to direct my clients on how to position themselves to stay safe.
In short: I do pretty well in crises.
But this is not because I am physically strong or confident.
It is because I have the ability to manage my mind.
To see what is really important.
To stop the bullshit that goes through most of our brains when we are panicking and to decide myself what to focus on.
To remind myself that panicking never got anyone anywhere helpful.
To remember that I am Resilient. As. Fuck.
We need more people to be able to do that right now, more than ever.
I need YOU to do that. To show up for yourself and your community in a way that you help them stay focused on what is truly important. What we truly have control over.
As Thich Nhat Hanh, a well-known Buddhist and meditation teacher, said:
“When the crowded refugee boats met with storms or pirates, if every one panicked, all would be lost. But if even one person stayed calm, it was enough. It showed the way for everyone to survive.”
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you not only felt better, but could inspire others to take a different perspective as well?
To be the calm in the center of this storm?
I sure as hell think so.
Getting through this without breaking down is totally in your hands.
