“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was greater than the risk it took to bloom.”
The world looks much different than it ever has before. These unprecedented events have caused us all to shift into a temporary new way of thinking, acting, and being. Though we have faced hardships and challenges, we have endured. It is often in times of adversity that we are presented with the opportunity to grow and evolve.
We have all learned to adapt. Individuals and businesses have developed innovative ways to serve their communities. We have created new schedules and routines. Many have shown that they can be flexible – whether at home or at work – by taking on new roles and responsibilities. We have implemented creative ways of staying connected with one another during these times apart.
No matter what the future holds or what the new normal might be, we have already shown our tremendous resilience and immense capacity for growth. We will continue to adapt and evolve, and together we will persevere.
