Yes, we’re in the middle of a pandemic.
Yes, we’re now teachers in addition to parents.
Yes, we’re in confined quarters.
Yes, we’re unemployed.
Yes, we’re working from home.
Yes, we’re living a little more chaotic.
Yes, we’re losing loved ones and sadly not knowing what to do.
Yes, we’re living with uncertainty.
Yes, yes, and yes.
Yes, we’re spending more time together.
Yes, we’re learning to be more efficient with our time.
Yes, we’re living more consciously.
Yes, we’re giving Mother Nature a break.
Yes, we’re finding ways to live more creatively.
Yes, we’re learning how to eat differently.
Yes, we’re learning how to exercise differently.
Yes, we’re learning how to work differently.
Yes, we’re doing life differently.
It’s not about doing it perfectly.
It’s about doing it.
It’s not about not hugging or touching.
It’s about finding new ways to connect.
It’s not about looking for the impossibilities.
It’s about finding the possibilities.
It’s about allowing yourself to dream and plan.
Once this pandemic is over and we’re living in a new and different world – we can look back and say
“We’re now stronger for it – NEXT!”
