Finding Personal and Financial Calm in this Global Storm. There are a lot of things we cannot control and the year 2020 has reminded everyone all over the world how at the end of the day, people are just people susceptible to disease, and defenseless against unknowns. Everything can change drastically in just one moment and when everyone is affected, getting back up can be a huge challenge.
I am Laura Gyldenbjerg, a Licensed Insolvency Trustee, and I can help you find some calm in this global storm. The whole situation is daunting and stressful. You have all the reason to feel worried about your future.
With over 26 years in the field and having helped over a thousand individuals, I can help you wade through the financial chaos and feelings of instability brought about by the changes caused by dealing with COVID-19.
First Things First
How is your health? You are always your best asset. If you are in great health, that in itself should be a source of gratitude and comfort. It can also be a motivating force to stay in shape.
Exercising might be the last thing you would like to do, but if you find yourself in a bit of a rut, it is scientifically proven how exercising releases endorphins which results in a positive change in your mood. Building up your health by avoiding stress encourages a stronger immune system to fight off viruses too!
Where do you stand? Identify how much savings you have and how far ahead you can last with it. Try to find comfort from knowing that you have your savings and your awareness to spend it wisely can help guide you in making the best decisions for you moving forward.
If you do not have savings to last a long time, check on your health insurance policies and remember that should a need for it arise, any form of help to take some expenses off your shoulders is a good thing.
What are your assets? Your house or apartment is a place where you can find safety. Your car is something that allows you to comfortably travel while minimizing the risks of exposure. It may also be an emergency source of funds if it must come to that.
Look at what you have and think of how fortunate you are with what assets you possess and are at your disposal. Also consider the non-physical assets – your friends, family and people in your life who are there to help.
What’s the plan? This is a little harder to answer and it’s something we can help you clearly define. With the uncertainty clouding your thoughts and emotions getting in the way of logic, I can see your situation objectively allowing me to suggest a plan that would work best for where you currently stand and to achieve your goals.
When All Else Fails
If even after the above, you find yourself anxious of what the future brings, consider the Serenity Prayer which was written by the theologian Reinhold Niebhur. It is basically praying to be able to accept the things you cannot change, have courage to change the things you can, and have the wisdom to know the difference. Find a quiet moment in your day to internalize that not everything is within your control, and it is okay to sometimes let some of the fears go and ask for help.
My experiences have led me to this day to help you. I know what it’s like, taking a leap of faith as I did so back in 2008 to open my own firm. Since then, I’ve realized that there are times when all we need is someone who can understand our problems to help us get our focus back and feel that we have control over our life. That’s what I’m here for. Remember that Laura can help!
