You may have started 2020 with bold ambitions and grand plans, but due to issues beyond the control of any of us, they have now come to a screeching halt.

I know that there are those who are advocating using this time to learn an instrument or a language, but there are many of us who are just struggling with knowing how they will support their families in the weeks and months ahead.

If this is you, know that it’s OK to press pause.

Forget about your goals for a moment.

Don’t feel guilty if your progress stalls.

Don’t get caught up in starry-eyed dreams.

Let’s just get through this together.

Let’s give ourselves permission to deal with our anxieties.

Let’s take time to recover.  Emotionally, financially, spiritually.

There will be a time for great achievements.

This may not be that time.
