YOU are Essential

During 2020, there was a lot of talk about “essential workers.” When this term was used, they were generally talking about medical personnel and those required to keep the communities running. The non-medical people included trash collectors, grocery store cashiers, delivery people, and to a limited extent retail and restaurant personnel. This left many of us designated as “non-essential” during the pandemic. Since the awful situation caused a lot of mental health challenges, being dubbed as discretionary can make the sadness deepen. This video talks about the fact all of us are essential. Each and every one of us is essential to someone. Your job role is probably a minor part of being essential.

  1. Thanks Carolyn, two things caused me to take this path for our Hopefest. First, I strongly believe in the essential nature of each of us – with all our imperfections. Second, the fact many people have found extra time during the pandemic and also found reflection about their lives unsatisfactory. It’s easy to lose site of our own personal value. Unfortunately, many are dealing with severe depression. I want to do my part to change this way of seeing ourselves.

  2. Kate,
    Your words are so critical on this day and every day! Yes… we are all essential and everyone needs someone. I love the quote: “Don’t be afraid to shine, someone always needs your light”. Being available for each other is the most essential thing we can do as humans.
    May your light shine brightly, every day.
