I saw a post somewhere in the last few days that pushed back on the "we're all in the same boat" to say, nope, we're not. We're in different boats in the same storm. So, so true. Think about any major storm or hurricane - some are hit hard and others not so much, or somewhere in between. The amount of initial adversity doesn't always equate to amount of long term impact. Comparing hardship gets us nowhere.
All we can do is try our best to get through each day, and reach out for help if you need it. For me, looking forward to the next episode of Some Good News, asking Siri to play "happy music," tipping extravagantly when ordering take out (or getting curbside beer - yum), zoom calls with family and asking my neighbors to come out to their driveways on Saturday evenings so we can say hello (at a distance) and talk to other humans for a bit.
How about you? What's helping you get by in your boat?
