BEING RESILIENT IN THIS TIME OF CRISIS AND PANDEMIC

Updated: Oct 15, 2020

The Power of NOW

WELCOME to the first newsletter/blog to accompany the COVID-19 TOOLKIT. This title – THE POWER OF NOW – comes from a book written by Eckhart Tolle. The concept is so appropriate at this time of crisis and pandemic.

The COVID-19 TOOLKIT was originally developed for the front-line staff of Chicago Child Care Society to help them develop resilience and personal/professional strength as they went back out into the communities to serve people who were greatly challenged by the impact of COVID-19 and the ways in which racial issues and unrest were impacting their client’s lives.

These pandemic times continue to be risky and unsettled for all of us. But, these times are particularly unsettled for the heroes among us who are risking their lives every day in order to provide care for people who have contracted the Corona Virus.

In this first newsletter/blog, I want to remind us that there is POWER in the NOW of our lives – this very present moment. It is very important for each of us to live in GRATITUDE for all that we have and all that we are. It is important for us to express gratitude to all those around us, even though we are admonished to maintain social distancing and to wear a mask. As we do this, we care for ourselves and we care for those people who are around us.

GRATITUDE IS THE WAY – IN EVERY MOMENT OF NOW
