Quietude Management Mindset
We live in a world where we are always on the go, always connected, and constantly busy. So how do we effectively manage our mindsets?
We are in a time of great change, and this is why it is important to take some quietude. I have been thinking a lot about refining my Quietude Management Mindset, as a way to execute the fifth Me Power Principle – Ritualize Your Reflection (You Are More than Enough). I love this idea of being intentional with our time, energy, and attention.
Quietude (noun): a state of stillness, calmness, and quiet in a person or place.
Thank goodness the final Mercury Retrograde of 2022 from September 9th to October 1st is over!
When the planet Mercury enters apparent retrograde motion, for many of us that's a sure sign that trouble is ahead. Mercury normally moves faster than Earth around the sun. But when Mercury is retrograde, it is moving slower than Earth around the sun. In astrology, Mercury rules over travel, communication, and commerce — all of which can go haywire when Mercury is in retrograde. Some argue that the best way to deal with a Mercury retrograde period is to slow down and not rush into anything new or important until the planet moves forward again.
When things are challenging and we are in intense times of reflection, sometimes it is better to pause, take some moments out, and think about what is on the horizon. Take a deep breath and be grateful for everything you have done so far. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that we forget to stop and smell the roses.
I have noticed two things:
First, people who are going through difficult challenges often find themselves in a state of quietude that they did not anticipate before these challenges occurred. This quietude can be positive or negative depending on how they handle it and what they do with their reflections.
Second, there are people who are able to thrive during challenging times because they have learned how to use this moment for personal growth and self-reflection, rather than letting the challenges overtake them and their lives.
