Life can throw you for a loop sometimes, especially with this COVID 19 Virus. While it's okay to get down, it's NOT okay to stay down. Our attitudes are one of only a few things that we have any control over, and this is important to remember when we encounter adversity or when things happen "to us" which are outside of our control.
Like a guided missile gets back on course when it's headed off target, we must have anchors that snap us back into reality and help us to remember our purpose or how we're contributing to the world (beyond ourselves) in a meaningful way.
