COVID-19 threw us all for a loop. More than 36 million Americans have filed unemployment and more than 360,000 people worldwide have died due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is a difficult time that has affected many of us in life-altering ways.
As we continue navigating through these unprecedented times, we’d like to offer a few words of encouragement:
It’s okay to not be okay.
With so much going on in the world, it’s natural to feel a bit lost and unsure of what the future holds for us. While being hopeful and optimistic during these times would be great, it’s also okay if you’re feeling a little on edge. Take a deep breath, take it one day at a time, and remember we’re all in this together.
Change is the only constant.
One thing 2020 has taught us is that change is inevitable and unknowable. While we can’t always control what happens, we can control how we navigate through it by doing things that bring us comfort, such as cherishing time with loved ones or picking up a new hobby.
It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.
Life is short and tomorrow is never promised, which is why it’s important to cherish every moment we have on this earth. Whether it’s hopping in the car and going for a road trip or finding new ways to stay connected with family and friends, the key is to try and focus more on the journey than the destination.
This is an unusual time for all of us, and it’s important for us to remain encouraged.
