“All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.” – Alexandre Dumas
Non-stop news, hundreds of emails and resource centers on COVID-19, dozens of commercials on “uncertain times” and “we’re all in this together.” Others are trying to help, to create order from chaos, to figure it out.
We are all in this together, but each person is unique so don’t assume all are handling this time in the same way. Check in on colleagues, friends and family every day. Give yourself a break, stop trying to figure out much past today and know that it’s OK to not be OK. There are tough moments and struggles so be kind and gentle with yourself and others.
Move beyond fear and uncertainty. Surrender and succumb to HOPE. We will get to the #otherside!
Hope carries us, pushes us to keep going, holds up a mirror to our resilience, transcends the rational and sparks joy independent of circumstances.
Hope-2020 and beyond. Let’s do this!
