The last couple of years has been unsettling due to the global pandemic and my hope is that we can create a more peaceful, compassionate and tolerant world as a result of the learnings from the last two years. We’ve all learned humans are fragile, yet resilient, not good with change, yet adaptable and we are stronger together than when we are apart. This pandemic has impacted everyone differently, so it helps to remember we are all dealing with this in different ways. Some of us are fortunate to be able to stay home, have a roof over our head, food on our table and be safe with our families – others may not be as fortunate. It can be difficult to remember this when we are challenged with our own issues, we can forget the bigger picture. There are a lot of things happening across the world that are worse than lockdowns and quarantine. Even through all the craziness of these last two years, I hope you have been able to find moments to Laugh.Love.Live and be grateful for the things we do have, rather than focus on what we don’t have or are unable to do. I have found when I remember to be grateful for everything I do have, it helps me remember that I have so much more than others. I may not have a lot compared to others, but to some, I have more than enough. Remember, comparison is the thief of joy (President Theodore Roosevelt), this is what creates feelings of inferiority or superiority and does not create emotionally healthy humans. Let’s aim to help each other through this challenging time and look at ways to keep our minds, bodies and spirits healthy!
Thank you again for reading, and I hope to get some reading and writing in now that I have a bit more free time after completing my learning journey. Take care of yourselves and your loved ones, until next time – peace and blessings!
