This pandemic has taught us a lot. We have all had to face things that we would have preferred not to think about and have had to make difficult decisions of one kind or another. It has been a year of so many conflicting scenarios and emotions – of uncertainty, of loss, of lack, of isolation, of challenge and of change.
But it has also taught us to be inspired, to think differently, to be creative, to take stock and to appreciate.
Because at the heart of it all, we are human and wish to survive and support each other through the bad and the good.
As we re-emerge and negotiate the next steps, we will need to build confidence, to build different, and build for the future. It is a time to take courage and recognise that some things will not be the same – but that may not be a bad thing.
