Lauren Rice encourages readers to find freedom even when you feel restricted or stuck.
The ability to do what you want when you want to may seem like a relative impossibility these days. The #coronavirus is winding its way across the globe, affecting innumerable aspects of our collective lives in some ways that we cannot yet even begin to understand. Our experience at the individual level is challenging, filled with varying emotions, change, and an uncertain future. This period reminds me of that famous line from Charles Dickens:
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
