Today I had the privilege of speaking to some of the staff at SickKids Hospital
in Toronto. It was truly an honour. I reminded them, as I would like to remind everyone--
healthcare professionals and those who are dealing with sick children or those
with chronic illnesses—we really need to ask for what we need, and take good care
of ourselves and each other.
Show up for yourself first and then Just Show Up for others!
Reach out to your village, and be a part of that village for others.
None of us can do this alone, and certainly being at SickKids is a great reminder of that.
Go home tonight, hug your children, hug someone else’s children, or just hug whoever you can! Be SO grateful when they are healthy, let the small stuff go… it’s so unimportant.
Being at this hospital was a huge reminder of that!
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to anyone and everyone who works
with and supports sick children, their families and loved ones.
What you do is simply amazing. Thank you.
Take good care of yourselves and each other! Let’s be that Village!
