March ’21 Enews – mOVING fORWARD

(Written as the editor’s letter for the March 2021 GOL E-News. Read the full newsletter here.)

Or is that supposed to be “Moving Forward”?

I don’t know if you feel the same way, but a year into the pandemic I often find it hard to complete a coherent sentence let alone lead, strategize, or innovate. Even writing this, I feel like I’m straining for every word.

On the positive side there is hope! Vaccines are here and I get an exciting jolt everytime I see someone on Facebook sharing their #FauciOuchi. I get energized just contemplating what an in person Gathering might feel like. I get a feeling of disbelief that my daughters might have friends over again soon. All the feels!

If any of this resonates with you, hold strong and keep doing the good work. The end is in sight and though things will be different, we’ll be together again.
