A heaviness abounds right now. Pandemic, unemployment, polarized politics, change, uncertainty...the list is long. What can we do? How can we affect change?
Be a great spouse. Be a wonderful friend. Love the people you’ve been blessed with as deeply as possible. Don’t pass up any opportunity to be generous or caring. Tend your garden. Control what’s within your control, and let go of the rest.
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” (The Serenity Prayer)
Be grateful. Our days are numbered, whether it’s tomorrow or 50 years from now. Life is a gift, and despite circumstances, there has never been a better time to be alive in all of human history.
We’re in this together, and I believe even better days are ahead, especially when individuals are deeply committed to their sphere of influence.
