At first glance, the death, devastation, and destruction in so much of the world seems like (and is!) absolute tragedy.

No one wanted this.

We would wish it away if we could.

And – we can’t.

However, if we choose to seek the good in it….. Amazing things begin to happen.

Whether it’s more time with your family, more focus on a healthy routine, rethinking what you want for your future, using being laid off to build that business you’ve been dreaming of…

Whatever the case may be, there are amazing things that are coming from this whole experience that not one of us ever saw coming.

There are new, incredible possibilities opening for you if you choose to see them.

For me, it’s been:

  • Learning to slow down, to stop and smell the roses as they say
  • Valuing myself! I always did for others and a lot of the time at a cost to myself
  • TIME! I love my time; time to camp, time to sleep, time to read, time to workout, time with my Fiance! (yes I got engaged during COVID!!)

And for that, I’m incredibly grateful.

Finding gratitude in everything, even the ugly things, keeps us sane and moving forward.

It’s a choice we get to make.
