There is always uncertainty and change going on – sometimes we forget that. But unusually, at the moment, it’s happening to all of us at the same time. Many of the things we had planned for ourselves just aren’t happening or are happening quite differently. Sometimes it can feel tiring. Sometimes we imagine the worst will happen
We may be grieving over things that might have been but aren’t. The things we wish we could do but can’t. The people we wish we could hug, and they aren’t here. For me, I’ve had it relatively easy, and at the same time, how I wish that my son had been able to move over from Canada as planned. Now jobs may be harder to get and maybe he’ll just stay put.
Some of you have way more to deal with than that.
For me, the most useful thing to remember in all of this is what’s within my control and what isn’t. And how do I want to deal with the uncertainty?(more…)
