“We are still in the position of waking up and having a choice. Do I make the world better today somehow or do I not bother?” – Tom HanksTom Hanks and his wife contracted Covid-19 in Australia and they got through it, this was his message to the world. We love this guy, he gets it and we hope you do to, stay home, stay safe, stay connected and stay positive.
“Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better,” Hanks tweeted Sunday night. “Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone, you don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no? Going to take a while, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts… this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out. Hanx”
As always Tom has hit the nail on the head! In these times of uncertainty and fear, there are things we can control and things we cannot.
We CAN make sure we wash our hands
We CAN take sensible precautions
We CAN stay home and go out only for the essentials
We CAN limit the amount of time we spend Googling negative stuff
We CAN make our recovery a priority with online meetings
and most importantly
We CAN above all be KIND to ourselves and others
Whatever you do in life it always helps to have someone to help you paddle so make sure you reach out for support from others and offer it in return and remember: Alumni HQ are in it with you!!
