I read a quote the other day from Nelson Mandela when he was being interviewed by Tony Robbins.

Robbins asked Mandela how he survived decades in prison for being a civil rights leader in his country. Mandela responded, "I didn’t survive; I prepared."

This inspired me to look at waiting in a more positive light. There are so many things in life that we need to be patient and wait for. When we wait for health to return, the pandemic to end or significantly improve, or when we wait for any crisis to be over, can we shift our focus to invest in the future we hope for as we try to cope with the present situation?

It's been about a year now since this pandemic entered our lives. It came in like a wrecking ball and has changed life as we know it. Kudos to the cancer survivors pre-COVID-19 who I have watched weather this storm with the wisdom and bravery that they endured and mastered during their life-altering experiences. I cannot even try to comprehend the level of anxiety they have had to face. 

What has kept you strong?
