I typically begin the new year by reflecting on the past year and expressing gratitude for all my podcast guests. Instead however, on this week’s episode I’m going to bring Covid up close and personal, because in fact, Covid has been up close and personal for me this past week. My husband Paul and I had scratchy throats on the day after Christmas that quickly developed into all the Covid symptoms: sore throat, cough, chills, congestion, low-grade fever, headaches, and sure enough 3 days later we both tested positive for Covid. As our symptoms intensified in the middle of the week, I was brought to tears a few times by the thoughtfulness and kindness of others. My tears would flow each time a friend went out of their way to leave, on our door step, a test kit, a bag of groceries, Chinese herbs and cough syrup. I was challenged to receive the love, take it in, absorb it and let the power of love be as medicinal as the Chinese herbs were. Covid, up close and personal, reminded me of what it feels to tap into wholeheartedness. WHOLEHEARTED people live with courage, compassion, connection, and the willingness to be vulnerable. So many of our family, friends and neighbors were the courageous, compassionate ones helping Paul and me feel connected through our Covid isolation; I was the vulnerable one learning how to receive their love. Here’s to 2022 being a year we all practice living WHOLEHEARTEDLY! Be healthy, be gentle, be kind, be courageous, compassionate, connected and vulnerable.
