We move around at a hundred million miles an hour all of the time. And sometimes, the only way the universe can get our attention is to force us into a sacred pause. And now the world is in a period of mandatory stillness. Psychologist, speaker and professor, Dr. Thema Bryant-Davis has brilliantly dubbed this time a “divine opportunity” to take inventory over our lives, gain clarity, and dig deep to understand what really matters to us. Dr. Thema cautions us to break the vicious cycle of conflating our “busy-ness” with our value, and offers a blueprint for defining the places where we’re accepting a “basement” existence when we were made for a “penthouse” lifestyle.
