Family bonding time

We are grateful for the extra time we get to spend with our families, watching favorite movies, cooking, doing art projects, walking together, playing games and just being present.

The chance to slow down

We are grateful for the opportunity to slow down and to be more thoughtful in our work and where we spend our time and energy. We had the opportunity to reconnected with people and as a result we have experienced incredible joy and energy, thought-provoking conversations, and a sense of authentic connection in a time of physical distancing. We also had the opportunity to take the time and complete numerous online educational courses and get even better at our craft.

A supportive partner

During these stressful and overwhelming times, we are extremely grateful for our partners and the people in our lives. They have been our rocks through all of these adjustments, and for sure have made this challenging times easier.

Time to reflect

We are especially grateful for this pause to be able to reflect on what’s important to us — to ask ourselves whether all aspects of our lives are purposefully aligned or whether some areas need grooming. Sometimes we get so caught up with our day-to-day obligations and we don’t take time to sit back and listen to what our inner voice might be telling us. We are thankful to be able to have the quiet mornings to meditate, to hang out with our hearts and contemplate the answers to these questions that oftentimes become so difficult to hear amidst the noise.
