Why we’ll cherish time and connection more than ever

As I start to ponder what I’ve learnt in 2020 as part of my own personal yearly review.

Of all the madness this year, I find myself continually drawn to this quote shared from Brandon Lee about life before he sadly passed.

“Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can’t even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless…”

In a nutshell, time is short, connection is precious and 2020 has shown how much we suffer when both are threatened.

I think one thing we’ll be all more grateful for, is our time with each other.
