    The Morning StartUp – Episode 10 Spring: A Time of Growth and Change

    The Morning StartUp – Episode 10 Spring: A Time of Growth and Change

    The conversation in this episode evolves around how the lifestyle changes brought on by COVID-19 has affected all of us. Spring is a time of change and renewal. The quarantine is not only taking place during the spring, but it is also analogous to the season itself. It is forcing a great amount of change on humanity. Just as this season comes with much muck and mud - giving way to beautiful flowers, the emotional muck and mud we are currently experiencing is also giving way to some positive changes in our lives. It has forced us to slow down and push through our emotions....and to really examine our lives. The flowers that can be glimpsed from this horrible event include compassion, kindness, connectedness and generosity to and for others. It's taken us away from indifference to a place of gratitude. The realization that we are all in this together - we are all human - helps us to find the courage, day to day. You will definitely want to hear this!
