As all these new variants hit the news cycle, ( yes and the news from Afghanistan ) it's easy to get discouraged, frustrated, angry and even depressed. I had a recent loss in my family of someone just starting out in life (21). It was a shocking and heartbreaking thing to take place. But, it made me more aware than ever that I need to keep in touch with my family and friends. To try and bring a moment of levity, light and love into their lives.
To also go out past my intimate circle, to bring that same intentionality to all people who I come across. Smile, hold a door, give a compliment. Very little effort, but it may be the only kindness and bright spot someone has in their day.
Steve the @postman29 So true. Thank you so much. So easy to go in auto pilot for the day to day stuff. But I'm looking for more opportunities to help people and make a difference. Where I volunteered for 2 1/2 yrs. closed the portion of service that I was providing. After all this time with covid and now variances, need to find a creative outlet, but still protect my health.
