Keeping Strong during Covid19

Wednesday, April 8, 2020 Lisa Cookson

I woke up at 5am to check my mobile.  No Skype calls from my son - phew he is still ok!  Boris Johnson spent second night in ICU but is stable.  Thinking about the programme I watched last night on 'Returning to Belsen' by Jonathan Dimbleby.  This really puts what is going on now into perspective seeing what the Jews endured in the Holocaust.  Absolutely horrific!  However, we can relate to the feeling of having absolutely no control of our situation.  Victor Frankl quoted in his book ' The Meaning of Life' it is our attitude that will get us through this...…

'Everything can be taken from a man but one thing:  the last of the humans freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances to choose one's own way' Victor E. Frankl

I worry each day that something will set off my son's anxiety with dire consequences BUT I try to think about what Victor Frankl went through and then I feel strong 💪 I pray for all of you and all our children to stay safe and to get through these difficult times 🙏
