And yes, I have faith in the greater good, that all is temporary and all will work out in the end and that what we know as our current reality may be very different when the dust settles.
I'm trying to stay positive, stay optimistic and focus on my blessings instead.
The luxury of travel, school and childcare, employment, access to our goods and services above our basic needs and of course, our health is all in question. Now with social distance measures required to help us ensure the most vulnerable in our population can be safe, our human need for social interaction has forced us to turn within.
In this continued time of uncertainty impacting the world, we need to remind ourselves to:
🤞Respect the decisions being made at this moment in time and that the decisions and direction can also change very quickly in this fluid and dynamic situation.
🤞Have confidence and trust that the authorities above us from all levels and industries are making the best decisions they can to help us through this global crisis.
As worried as I am though, I also know this is temporary.
Breathe. It’s time to focus on simplicity.
To trust that all is out of our control, to allow us to trust in the greater good.
To have faith. To have faith in humanity and that the hard times ahead will force us to re-evaluate our own priorities, to bring us closer to each other by forcing us apart.
But we will come together in a way we are not used to. To individually and collectively make a difference. We must take care of each other in time of need. And we need each other now more than ever. But at the end of each day, we have each other.
