As lockdowns lift and communities reopen, we are starting to feel a hint of normalcy return. Living in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably challenged us and, through these challenges, we have been changed.
Some have been changed as they grieve the loss of loved ones. Others have been changed as they search for a new job and means to live. Some have been forced to work throughout the pandemic, risking their lives, and others have had to work full time while taking care of and/or homeschooling children. In one way or another, most of us have had the opportunity to clear our calendars, experiment with new lifestyles, reflect on our priorities, and reset our lives.
