Some of our pain during this season doesn't have to do, directly, with a virus. It has more to do with our lives screeching to a halt and our sense control being lost.
Not all pain is bad.
We've needed to slow down, and we've needed to let go of the illusion that we're in control of our lives.
We're not in control. We never were.
Some of the pain we're experiencing during this season is GROWTH.
For me, remembering that helps me be receptive to things which, while uncomfortable, may be very very good for me. Some (some, not all!) of what is happening now is very very good for us.
