I was recently told that humans are meaning-makers as a way of getting through the hard times, when sometimes there is no meaning. Bad things happen. We lose.
So maybe it helps to remember the basics of getting through each day, without looking ahead to something much bigger and overwhelming. I created this from part of Tom Hanks’s final missive in the film Castaway. I love the ocean reference and the thought that something could happen to turn things around when you feel like there’s no hope.
