It’s been a short week.

And I’m glad about that, because it’s been a tough one.

Sometimes you feel you have this life thing under control and then it just pulls the rug from underneath you.

This COVID-19 thing is a perfect example of this.

Everyone seemed to be excited about 2020.

For whatever reason, people were happy to wave goodbye to 2019 and welcome a new year of possibilities and opportunities.

Well 2020 has been utterly crap so far, hasn’t it?

That said, it has ignited some wonderful acts of humanity and compassion – of which the incredible walk by 99 year old Captain Tom Moore is a perfect example of one of them – but we can’t forget the reason for this is because there are people who are beings severely impacted by all this.

Not just all the amazing essential workers out there, but others around us.

Neighbours. Friends. Colleagues. Peers.

People who are being impacted financially, professionally, emotionally or mentally.

One of the worst feelings in the World is when you think you are on your own.

The pressure that puts you under – and that you place on yourself – is suffocating.

Add to that quarantine, and these feelings can be amplified enormously.

While I know we are all being impacted in some way, checking in on those who are having the hardest time is important.

Because while we will come out of this – as we always do – it’s situations like this that remind us the only thing we really have is each other.

Take care of yourselves.
