Hi! I just wanted to write a brief blog post today and acknowledge some folks that I feel deserve accolades and merit. Last night, I managed to catch an hour of the Oscar’s before I got bored and turned it off. I enjoyed the more intimate setting and preferred not having a ceremony host. Considering everything that has occurred over the past year, it was a very different and somewhat subdued awards ceremony than previous years.
As I was watching, I was considering how we’re in the midst of major world change and global upheaval right now. This time is so unprecedented and unlike anything we’ve ever experienced in our lifetime. If you’re doing well right now, please acknowledge yourself for having a hand in that. And if you’re struggling, do what you need to do to take care of yourself and to receive support. It’s ok. We are all experiencing these changes and turmoil together.
Lastly, if I could give out awards, I’d celebrate the nurses, doctors, first responders, teachers, scientists, and the parents who are managing to raise a family, work and attend to their kids. If that’s you, I salute you. You are truly awesome!
