I am currently reading A Tale of Two Cities. Truth be told, I haven’t discovered it’s charm yet, but, like most people, I am moved by the powerful beginning. I find this quote to be incredibly apropos given our current state: global/national pandemic, racial tension, and a presidential election. To simplify Dickens’ words, this season is hard. I know we don’t need a quote to validate our reality, but words often provide clarity for me. I don’t know about you, but everywhere I turn, reality is sobering. So, what can we do? I thought I would take a moment to share the ways I am working to navigate our current circumstances:
There are many circumstances beyond our control right now. But to use my favorite author’s words, “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves” (Victor Frankl) How are you navigating this season? What healthy practices are you incorporating into your life?
One committed to processing truth, finding light in the darkness, savoring the simple, and living fully.
