It’s not looking pretty…
With multiple cities going on lock down, warnings that 15 days of social distancing might not be enough, companies going through rounds of layoffs, and no way to predict how long this will go on, it honestly isn’t looking good.
Its hard not to get sucked into the negativity, the stress, and the panic. I am personally really struggling with the mental aspect of all of this. However, some small things this last week have really helped my sanity and mental health.
For starters, my dad woke up one morning and told me that he needed some yoga in his life. I walked out to the backyard to see this awesome setup with music playing. This small gesture significantly lightened the mood of a really heavy day.
Then, later in the week, I was able to be a part of a couple virtual happy hours with my company and other event professionals:
And that’s when everything started to change for me. I started to realize that during this insane time, I have actually been MORE social – just through different mediums. My team has come together in ways that we never have before, and I feel this extreme sense of unity spreading within the events community.
I am not glossing over the fact that this has been a difficult time for people, but I am trying my hardest to find some light in the darkness.
I’m heartbroken that people are out of work, seniors around the world aren’t able to celebrate their graduations, and people are feeling isolated. However, I have seen first-hand so many wonderful qualities of humanity in the last couple of weeks.
I am very uncertain of what’s going to happen to the world, but I truly believe in the people who inhabit it. Even if we have to drastically change the way we operate or completely start over from scratch, I know we will all find a way to get through this together. ❤️
