“You drown not by falling into a river, but by staying submerged in it.”- Paul Coelho

I had hoped to swim out of the 2020 funk like an Olympic swimmer when the calendar flipped to a new year, but I may need to just “tread water”. This is still better than drowning! We need to give ourselves and others a bit of grace, and take pride in the times we just tread water- it is better than the alternative. As Dory in Finding Nemo tells us… Just keep swimming!
