One Year Ago Today

Posted on March 11, 2021

One year ago today was the last time I gathered with people who were not my household family members or medical personnel for required medical appointments. 

One year ago today was the last time I hugged a friend.

One year ago today was the last time I ate in a restaurant. 

One year ago today was the last time I left the house without a mask.

In the past year, I have permanently lost friends, some to COVID-19, some to conspiracy theories. Both have hurt deeply.

In the past year, I have also been witness to incredible resiliency, patience, courage, determination, and authenticity, some of it my own.

In the past year, I simultaneously felt like I lost faith in humanity and renewed my faith in humanity.

In the past year, I have become even more conscious of what’s truly important to me, of where I need to grow, where I need more compassion, and where I can stop holding back out of fear. 

One year ago today, everything changed.
