For most of us, the start of 2020 has felt surreal. Except for a few visionaries out there, many of us never expected our lives to be turned upside down in such a short period of time by a viral pandemic. It's been so uncomfortable to change my whole routine: no friends over for meals, no leisurely picnics in the park, and getting a Tesco delivery has become the highlight of my month.
How do we respond to this crazy turn of events? For me, the answer is love in action. Love my city in whatever way I can: by staying at home where possible thereby protecting the vulnerable, by being a mom and loving my family, by serving my community through my work and by praying to God for all those who are sick and suffering at this time.
I feel so privileged to be a physiotherapist during this pandemic. I have had the incredible opportunity to love my community and to play a small part in caring for people through my work. Lets look for opportunities to make love real and alive. So that when everything is all over, we will be known for our incredible love.
