Bounce Back from Tough Times

“A lesson from the lawn.”

Imagine if a blade of grass decided it had had enough. It was done with having its head snipped off every weekend and its seeds – its future – cut off in their prime. Who could blame it?

Yet, what does that ol’ blade of grass do? It doesn’t say: “I give up! I’m getting nowhere!” It just keeps on growing. It continually takes in the energy from the sunlight and magically converts carbon dioxide from the air into food to make more leaves and more seeds.

A blade of grass is resilient.

You too, can learn to be as resilient as the grass. You may be cut down on a regular basis, yet your strength is in standing up, dusting yourself off, and starting all over again. Even when grass is covered in concrete, it finds a way to grow up through the cracks.

And, so must you.Take a “leaf” out of the grass’ book. Connect with your own resilience and keep on growing.

    I think we all need to remind ourselves to be resilient since we are in the midst of a pandemic.

    It is striking closer to home for us... talked to my daughter in Amsterdam today and they are in a red zone, with 9000 new cases each day in The Netherlands. She has been working from home for months, and lives alone so is taking all the necessary precautions, but she definitely will not be coming to Canada for Christmas this year.

    Then I opened an email from another daughter, whose husband is a Peel Police Officer. He learned yesterday that the son of someone he works with every day has tested positive for Covid-19... everyone in the office is being tested... we will just have to wait to see what happens there.

    Be safe,
