I was doing my allowed grocery run today, listening to a talk show, and vaguely heard the announcer mentioning some celebrity name … didn’t really pay that much attention until I heard what this celebrity said. Here it is:
When I go outside I see empty streets, and I believe that is a statement of love … love for our elderly parents, and brothers and sisters with compromised immune systems; love for our neighbors and friends. Love and acknowledgment for those of us who no longer have a paycheck, or who can’t pay their rent, or who go bankrupt… .
I wish I’d heard who said that. It’s a beautiful statement from a generous heart.
It reminds me of something else I’m hearing around me – that everyone is doing their best. It may not be my best or your best. It may not be the best they can do on a good day, but it’s their best for today.
Instead of judging my neighbor, I want to hold what I heard over the radio in my heart, knowing that we are all doing our best – and always doing the best we can – in this moment.
Three questions to ask yourself about everything you do
