We continue to be living in a time of an active pandemic, COVID -19. Uncertainty remains, but so does optimism and faith.
In honor of this Mother’s Day weekend, I thought I would share a few of my favorite inspirational quotes from women and mothers appropriate for the times.
“I do the very best I can to look upon life with optimism and hope and looking forward to a better day.” -Rosa Parks
My take: We will experience low and high points throughout our life. COVID-19 is an obvious low point. Regardless of how low it goes, if we remain optimistic about the future and confident there are better days ahead, we will prevail.
“Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people- your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way.” -Barbara Bush
My take: We’ll be successful in overcoming the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, if we all respond to COVID-19 in a selfless way. We’re all in this together.
Find opportunities to use your favorite quotations in your meeting presentations and your daily conversations to encourage and inspire those around you.
Which leads me to this infamous quote credited to Maya Angelou; “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
