Let this virus be our philosophical re-calibration.
Love, gratitude and connectivity have never been so important.
Let this time be hallmarked in history as the moment the world was ‘reset’ for the better.
A catalyst for positive change and a moment to reflect on what matters most.
Perhaps one day we will thank you Covid-19:
- For allowing us to stay at home with our children.
- For forcing Grandparents to master FaceTime and video technology.
- For introducing us to new friends, acquaintances and support networks.
- For returning humility to society.
- For recalling how nice it was to dine in our favourite restaurant.
- For the beautiful gardens we planted during isolation.
- For pushing us to finally complete that online course or home renovation.
- For Netflix, PlayStation, YouTube and comfortable couches
- For prompting us to reminisce past holidays, air travel and happy memories.
- For lowering our expectations and entitlement.
- For emphasising the need to stay active and exercise.
- For stimulating our growth mindset.
- For encouraging us to protect our vulnerable and elderly.
- For revolutionising the way we work remotely.
- For triggering a virtual learning shift in our schools.
- For empowering our front line health workers and essential services.
- For teaching us the importance of human contact.
- For bringing back the fresh air.
- For letting the children of China finally see blue skies.
- For teaching us to fight harder than we ever knew possible.
- For making us put our health and the health of others first.
- For bringing compassion front of mind.
- For giving us a moment of calm amongst the chaos.
- For stopping the ‘busy’ and making us present again.
- For finding new opportunities and innovations we might never have considered.
- For igniting empathetic leadership around the globe.
- For the gift of unity.
When we reflect on this crisis in the future, my hope is that these words are true. That we can thank Covid-19, for being the best ‘reset button’ the world has ever seen; for giving us the most important job we will ever have — to save lives. 🙏🏻
Sending much love to those who are suffering, struggling, putting themselves at risk in essential services, or on the front line protecting the ones we love… ❤️
