The young people I interact with. They have a lot to give and many are wise beyond their years. This brings hope.
My husband, my bestie, and my parents. All of them are supportive, and encouraging, and rarely criticise. All of them will listen and share their opinion, if it is requested. Hopefully I help support them to be their best selves, too. But it’s something I could probably improve on.. good to reflect on!
For me, it has put the spotlight on relationships. It can be easy to follow the lines of our busy routines, from A to B to C. What’s left when that is removed? Our social connections. We’re in this together, so we need to make it work. I need to remember to be patient, to be grateful, to compromise, and to let the little things go. I need to follow my instincts and reach out to those who might be doing it tough. Distancing physically, while connecting socially.
The calm, steady presence of my other half. I am complete without you, but you tether my orbit. I do not thank you often enough.
I no longer need t0 invest too much in certain friendships. Instead, try and find a balance that seems to work for both parties. Don’t overdo, don’t overthink.
Connection. Reflection. The goodness people are showing in their words and deeds. Hope, in the face of uncertainty.
Everyday meals together as a family and talking to each other without distraction. Seems a rare thing these days.
This resonates – thank you, Debra
Sounds like you are quite self-aware and having some useful reflections. Best wishes.
I think that’s a common feeling.. but don’t be too hard on yourself!
Sending a hug, Michele! Hoping for brighter days in your future.
