I’ve been quiet recently, taking some time and space to process all this and waiting for the way forward to emerge. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been feeling lost and uncertain.
But today, I am sitting in the sunshine sipping my coffee and feeling grateful. The fear is still there in the pit of my stomach but LOVE is winning through.
None of us can solve this, and perhaps as changemakers we all are struggling to see what our role now is. I have nothing but admiration and love for those that leapt straight into action to serve others. Amazing. And I have the deepest gratitude to those for whom this period won’t be one of stepping back and reflecting, but instead one of jumping onto the frontlines and doing their best work – the biggest and hardest test of their lives.
For the rest of us, there’s a simple choice. LOVE (for each other, for ourselves, for life); or fear. The question is, who do we choose to be?
