You didn’t choose the circumstances you are facing right now. You ARE choosing your reaction to those circumstances, and I know it’s not easy. I know there are a million other things you would rather be doing, a million other thoughts that you would like to be thinking. And you are choosing to do what feels important to you right now. In case you need someone else to tell you this, let me say that you are doing a great job in not-so-great circumstances. Please remember to take care of yourself so that you may continue to take care of others. And pause for a minute to appreciate that you, too, are a good person.
