As the international community is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, Artio is committed to supporting everyone affected. We have postponed our public events until a later date, just to ensure safety and health. However, we also will be putting together resources on how to find peace and wellness in a time that pandemic tensions are growing. Stay tuned to our blog and our social media outlets. We are on Instagram @artioservices and Facebook.
I was listening to a podcast this past year about a woman who recently lost her husband. She said in the midst of crisis the best thing we can do is "lean into the suck." The coronavirus sucks, no doubt about it. The virus is not only taking lives, but it is affecting people's jobs, households, and mental/emotional health. My household has found, however, that if we accept the circumstances, things seem a lot less heavy. My daughter and I have begun preparing a homeschool space in anticipation for school closings. I am beginning to make decisions and choices for my family that put my mind at ease, instead of adding to the stress. This pandemic will inevitably affect people in many different ways, but I am confident that people are resilient and will pull together--even if it's supporting each other from a distance. This is where I am thankful to be in an era of technology, we can still connect without being in the same room and keep some industries afloat online.
Hang in there, my friends, we will get through this together. Everything has an expiration date, and this too will eventually be marked as a place in time. Until then, we'll "lean into the suck" and keep moving forward.
