Each night I fall asleep worrying. Am I doing enough? Am I doing it correctly? How are my staff members handling this? Are they hiding fears I can't see? Will my team be safe and healthy through this all? Will the financial needs of all my employees be made? Can and should we stay open to help pets in need? Is that selfish? Is that right?
Each morning I wake and say "We can and will survive this". I affirm that I am doing all I can to help as many as I can, be that human or otherwise. I affirm that I am making the best decisions with the knowledge and education I have. I believe that my team is strong and willing. I believe that my team will stay safe if we continue to remind ourselves daily of the potential impact of any mistakes. I pray that I will continue to be able to provide for my employees. I believe I should stay open and accessible for pet care. I do believe that is right.
I know you are also feeling this. This continual daily struggle of right and wrong. What ifs, and what nots.
I receive emails from a group and they call them "Daily Positives". Today's was "Both the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge were built during the Great Depression. Great things can be built during great adversity. Start building today."
