Where’s the silver lining?
As I sit at my desk this beautiful Sunday morning, quietly reflecting on the last few months, I can’t help but feel broken-hearted asking myself that singular question.
Like a thief in the night, 2020 has taken so much from all of us. I’m exhausted, your exhausted. This isn’t what anyone wanted or expected. We’ve been measured and found wanting. We’ve lost loved ones. We’ve lost jobs. We’ve been let down. We’ve let each other down. We’ve lost connection. We’ve been attacked and divided. We deserve better. You deserve better. I demand better.
Just as the hottest fire makes the hardest steel, the pain and loss of this year has brought out the best in each of us as we have painstakingly struggled through it. Although at first glance it may not seem true, we as a global people have unified in our movements. There is an unspoken bond of repatriation gaining momentum reminiscent of the great American Revolution. A great momentum of universal change. We have been stripped of the noise in our lives and only left with our ideals.
These ideals which share global commonalities are longings for unity, closeness, security and peace of mind.
I want to invite each of you to join me in demanding better. Let’s use the pain of this year to forge a new and brighter future for each of us.
We don’t want a return to life before Covid. We want a leap forward to a better day. Lets fight back the wolves at the gate together. We have the tools, processes and plan and as we speak it is working.
Look for my next post coming soon, introducing and discussing these processes and plans.
