In a time where the world feels different…
In a time where we are all missing the little things that we never thought we would have to miss…
In a time where there is more uncertainty than there is certainty…
Let us take a moment to remember that each and every one of us is feeling, experiencing, and living through this right alongside one another.

I challenge you to take a moment to think about what these words may mean to you and how will you implement them into your daily life?

“Remember all the things you do have.”
“Start each day with a grateful heart.”
“Be thankful for the things you often overlooked before this time of uncertainty.”

“Be kind to yourself.”
“Allow yourself to feel and be aware of your feelings.”
“Be patient with yourself.”
“Set realistic expectations.”

“Believe that you have the determination to not let life challenges defeat or define you.”
“Remember your inner warrior.”
“Remind yourself of what you have been able to overcome”.
“You are more powerful than you think.”
“Sometimes we are tested, not to show our weaknesses, but to discover the strengths we may not always see.”

“Let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see.”
“Praise yourself for the small steps.”
“Positive thinking will allow you to do everything better than negative thinking ever could.”
“The best view always comes after the hardest climb.”
“Find the good in each day.”

“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”
“Keep an open mind.”
“Welcome change.”

Mindfulness & Self Care:
“Never lose your sense of wonder.”
“Give yourself permission to pause.”
“Avoid dwelling on the things you cannot control.”
“Focus on what you can.”
“Challenge yourself to be present.”
