What Can We Learn From COVID-19?

March 24th, 2020|

Wow. What a time we're living in. We have all been affected by the COVID-19 crisis in one way or another. Whether it be economically, emotionally, or in work. It’s difficult for me to get my head out of the fog as I process the unfolding of this pandemic. The thought of editing or even getting on my computer feels gut-wrenching. But we all must stay positive and persevere! I took last week to absorb it all and here’s what I came up with: Replenish. I’m reminded of the Dust Bowl that occurred nearly one century ago and what we learned from it then.

Just like humans— we cannot relive the same busy schedule over and over again without depleting ourselves. Now is a time to slow down and replenish the mind, body, and soul. Connect with the earth. Reach out to loved ones. Tap into the place within that brings your spirit peace. We’re all on this ship together and we have two choices. We can either sink with the ship, or we can swim. Let’s weather this storm together! The sunshine will return and this will all make some kind of sense to us when we reach the other side of the rainbow. I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe in your home. [...]
