Our thoughts are with you and your loved ones during this time of uncertainty. Each of us is affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) in different ways and are experiencing how quickly life can change overnight.
During these challenging times, please remember to take care of yourself. Also know that we all have immense power to use our creative gifts to bring light and support to one another during the crisis we are all facing.
As many are finding new ways to connect and collaborate with others at work, school, and socially, we are rediscovering the vital gift of connection we all have with one another, and the invaluable link each of us IS in this vast dynamic network of life.
You matter. We matter. Right now, someone is so grateful to the unique presence you bring into their life. We all touch others in ways we will never truly know and need one another more than ever today to work through this.
Many of us are grieving loss right now. Loss of loved ones, health, jobs, wellness, and routine. Through loss we are reminded how fragile and temporary life is. Nothing is guaranteed, each moment is precious, and every relationship is important.
We may be forced to re-prioritize where we spend our time, energy, and resources as we navigate our individual situations and respond to our own questions of "what truly matters to me right now?" For some of us, this changes daily. For others, hourly.
Please reach out and connect with those you care about. Make use of all the available resources you have and stay educated about what you can control in your personal circumstances. Take extra care of yourself and your loved ones.
Please stay safe and well.
