The dark does not destroy the light; it defines it. It’s our fear of the dark that casts our joy into shadows.Brene Brown
It seems challenging to say the least, to stay grounded and positive with so much anxiety and uncertainty looming in our lives these days. It seems that many of us are experiencing an ongoing kaleidoscope of mixed emotions.
We may be watching to understand how the return to school for students around the globe will turn out.
Waiting for information about the timing of a safe vaccine.
Worrying about political pandemonium close to home.
Wondering about the possibility and probability of a second wave.
Feeling frustrated that the positivity of earlier months in the pandemic seems to have vanished.
Being courageous during trying times requires conscious and mindful attention to all that is good in our lives. Finding the self-knowledge within to understand that life is about seeking balance. Being grateful for what we have. Recognizing that shifting between the positive and negative allows us to see the value of both.
Reaching out to our people as often as we can. Our connections with one another remain the most important aspects of our lives. Respecting that will enable us all to safely get through these trying times. May you find both joy and light during these difficult times.
Stay healthy and safe!
