When I think about our experience of managing through the ebb and flow of the effects of a worldwide pandemic, I also reflect on the life lessons this has taught me. Through three quotes, I have learned:
“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” – Mahatma Gandhi. Perhaps my biggest take away is how slowing down has been a huge blessing; not only in my own experience, but seeing it shift as a valuable effect on society in general.
“Our character is often revealed at our highs and lows…..Be humble at the mountaintops. Be steadfast in the valleys. Be faithful in between.” – marcandangel. Covid-19 has reinforced to me a basic principle that I live by – we cannot always control what happens to us by way of challenges that come into our path. What we do have control over is how we respond to those difficult times; we can do it with fear or we can do it with grace.
And lastly: “We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”―
