We’re All In this Together 

I don’t know about you but I’ve really enjoyed watching the Olympics track and field. The highlight for me was watching fellow Australian Ash Moloney in the last event of the Decathlon, the 1500m run. To place third, he had to beat two other particular athletes or not finish more than 9 seconds behind them. On the last lap of the race, it looked like Ash had nothing left, but his teammate and mentor Cedric Dubler ran beside him and scream at him to keep going! It was amazing to watch.
That push and support from his fellow teammate earned him a Bronze Medal. The first time Australia has won a medal in the Decathlon!
This moment reminded me how important it is to have someone to help and support you, especially during the current situation. Things are seeming to fall apart. No one really knows what life will look like in a month. Or even a week. Uncertainty prevails.
Some of you reading this will have lost your job. Or had your hours cut back. Or had your income drop. It’s scary. It’s hard. I understand because, trust me, I’ve been there.
Who can you turn to?
Who turns to you?
We need connection now, more than ever. Take a moment to reach out to someone you love. Even if you haven’t spoken to them in a while.
