Through our recent experiences with Distance Learning, we have all had to experience being placed in roles we had not been in before. Along this journey it is inevitable that we will find people with whom we disagree. Even more common are those that we get used to and perhaps, even, take for granted.
The reality, though, is that none of us can be everything, and everyone we come in contact with teaches us something, if we are open to listening. I have been thinking about this a lot lately. When thinking about events that led to the place where we are, there are certainly experiences I think I would have liked to have changed. But then I remember, the place we are, as a is a good place. It may not be the end game but it is a step along the road and if I changed any of those interactions we might not be in the place we stand, today, which will lead us to where we hope to go.
So, today, instead of hoping things are different, and being ready to rush back to what we knew, let’s turn that around and think about those individuals who have been part of the experience that led us to where we are. Who are the people you appreciate, maybe now more than ever?
