Heroes Among Us

In times of crisis, the best in us will surface. We find something that wells up from deep within, from a place we may have not visited in a while.

When we see others in pain, fear and/or suffering, our innate nature of nurture surfaces.

We all want this turning point in the history of mankind to show signs of ending. While we wait, our patience is being tested, something extraordinary is happening.

Compassion and creativity are merging.

In order to keep from boredom, men, women, and children are finding creative ways to share, connect and reach out in ways they have not done before. I see amazing fortitude in pushing forward through the challenges we face.

While some of us are scared and feel intimidated by the uncertainty of our future, others are reaching out to comfort, standing in strength to support those in need.

Life will go on, no matter what we are thinking, doing or not doing. We cannot control what is happening, but we can choose how we respond to the situation.

We will all have a story to tell, and this event will go down in the history books as it is an unprecedented unfolding of what it takes for the world to unite in saving ourselves with compassion, being creative in staying focused, and moving forward into a new way of being once this is over.

There are heroes among us we must honor and cherish. They are the threads of hope and the lifeline joining together to find a quick solution, handle imminent threats, and do their best to assist the greater community to become whole again.

Be sure to thank each and every person you know who is and will contribute to the success of our coming out of this crisis victorious. Although we will have lost many lives, people’s livelihoods will have been shattered, and there is a long road ahead of us for rebuilding; we always seem to rise above the ashes.

Stay positive, stay strong, never give up. Our future is being shaped by the events of today, tomorrow is a reflection of how we persevere through tough times.

  1. Eileen, thank you for a very insightful message – I enjoyed reading it.

    I am privileged to be involved together with very many people in “humanitarian” programs and am blessed. Over the last many 100’s of years, the world has seen and experienced various kinds of crises and tragedies, but none like the one we are all experiencing at the present time.

    Yes, we are all called to be individual HEROs, to be Helpful, Encouraging, Respectful, and Outstanding in any of the circumstances we may face individually. Together, we can overcome these challenges by helping everyone respect others.

    • Jonathan, you are very welcome! Glad you enjoyed reading it. In study after study, being involved in humanitarian activities is one of the top things that speaks to the human heart. You are indeed blessed and agree, this crisis is testing our humanity, ability to reboot ourselves as a whole, and build a stronger foundation that has a basis of love, collaboration, respect and heart centered.

      I believe we are coming together, not just in individual ways, but also universally as a mass conscious to re-evaluate our past behaviors and actions. Perhaps, in an effort to ask ourselves, do we want more of what was or are we going to take this time of pause as an opportunity to move forward better, stronger and wiser?

      That is one of the keys….teaching and learning what respect really is. How simple it can be and the depths to which it can have a positive impact. We will all get through this together, and it seems those in the BIZ360 community are leading the way!

      Stay safe! Cheers! Eileen

    • Thank you again Eileen… We truly can’t predict the future. But we can control how we react to the evolving emergency as it unfolds, and we must remember that adversity defines our character. Crises can be a time of deep reflection and positive transformation.

      Albert Einstein reminds us that we are all in this together:

      “Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of other men — above all for those upon whose smile and well-being our own happiness depends, for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy.”

      Let’s make an effort to be kind to one another while taking the necessary health precautions, but without succumbing to mass hysteria and spreading unnecessary panic.

    • Jonathan, agree! Love Einstein’s quote and your last paragraph is good advice. Stay safe! Cheers!

  2. Great read Eileen,
    It’s been an amazing thing to see, so many stepping up and doing all they can. Mindsets are changing..humanity is rearranging.
    Thank you for highlighting the need for gratitude and keeping a sense of gratitude here!
    Stay blessed dear🙏🙏🙏🙏

    • Thank you Paula! Agree….mindsets changing and humanity rearranging. Something I believe has been in the works for awhile as far as the shift we are seeing. Hopefully, once we are out of the crisis, we all move forward with better connections and the compassion within every human finds its way into daily experiences. You are welcome! Have you found the ability to stay positive and have gratitude through these uncertain times?

    • Paula, that is wonderful! Not always easy in chaotic times, but it does help to get through to the other side with less stress.
