Meaningful Monday: The Measure Of Who We Are

April 27, 2020 By kristen

Our measure isn’t about what we have, how rich we are, who works for us, or who we know. It is in what we do with what we have. This quote goes hand-in-hand with another tenant I live by: serving others. Those of us who find that deep personal satisfaction in helping others know just what I mean. Those of you who don’t know should give it a try. Read my thoughts on this topic in this article.

Meaningful Monday: Happiness

April 13, 2020 By kristen

Happiness exists in giving and in serving others. Even in our hardest, saddest times we have always been able to pull together, help others who need it, and find joy in serving our communities. Now more than ever, this is exactly what we need to do! There are so many people who are in need, so many healthcare workers who need supplies, so many people who need food… we need to be at our best once again!

Meaningful Monday: Be a Realist

April 6, 2020 By kristen

Now isn’t the time to be the pessimist, complaining about things that we have no control over. It also isn’t the time to be the optimist, believing that things aren’t as bad as they really are. Today, we all need to be realists. We need to accept the situation we are in, and adjust our behaviors accordingly. We are struggling in the midst of a global pandemic, yet there are some who still don’t seem to understand that we are in a crisis. They just don’t get it. But we need them to “get it”. We all must do our part. When we all see the situation as it really is, we can all work together to build a better world for us all. Read more to learn more about what you can do.

I felt that this particular message is important for us to focus on today: “Only the guy who isn’t rowing has time to rock the boat.” I hope my words make sense to everyone, and that we can all stay busy rowing the boat of our nation, keeping us afloat. Let’s all work together to get through this. We can do this. Together.

Just An Update…

Take care of yourselves and take care of each other. We are truly at our best when we pull together and take care of each other. Check on your neighbors. Shop for your elderly community members so they don’t have to go out. Maintain social distance, but that doesn’t mean to completely isolate. We still need each other, more now than ever before!

This quote is especially meaningful on this Monday. Facing this looming COVID-19 pandemic can feel overwhelming! As Americans, we like our freedoms. We love it. We love doing what we want to do, when we want to do it and with whoever we want to do it with. All of the time. This time, however, enjoying those freedoms could cost us more than we are willing to pay!
