This week I have become somewhat engrossed (again) by the rising tide of COVID, the increase in people needing ICU beds and the fear that we won’t have enough – beds, people resources, people vaccinated – to stop the rising tide. Thoughts of “when will it all end” float in my head.
A few weeks back, I started asking myself, “How will you step in today? How will you step up today?” I felt stuck in this waiting game, and I wanted that to change. I felt like I needed to wait for the pandemic and our house construction to end before I made any moves forward.
Right now, the world is full of fear and uncertainty. It reminded me of another time in my life when I was afraid. Here’s what I wish I had known then and what I’m glad I know now.
