The World is Watching

I believe we are all watching the unfolding events in Eastern Europe today with concern for the people directly affected by this conflict and, naturally, with concern for what it might mean for the world and for us directly. Events like this have the tendency to shake the ground under our feet and leave us worried and often anxious for the future. And let’s face it, it is not like there hasn’t been anything else going on around us these past two years to cause us concern. So where do we go from here?

As you probably know by now, I am a big believer in the fact that we as human beings seem to have an endless capacity of getting ourselves into some deep holes. Yet, at the same time we are able to not only get ourselves out but, most often, in a way that advances us forward. While I don’t know for certain how things will progress over the coming days and months, I do know that we will find our way through this and that we will be stronger for it.  You might be thinking: “But this time is different!?”

Yes it is, all crises are different in their own unique way – think 9/11, 2008 financial crisis, oil price drops, COVID,etc. – and while in the moment it seems like the world is falling apart, when we look back, they become another battle scar that we survived and grew from. I have no reason to believe that while the causes might feel different, the end result will be the same. 

Here are some some articles/resources I thought you might appreciate and find valuable at this time.
