“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together” -- African proverb.
Virtually everything you can enjoy alone can be amplified by sharing it with a special someone.
The year 2020 has been one of trials and tribulations, of fear, doubt and uncertainty. However, it also presented us with an opportunity to grow closer to those who possess the capacity to enhance our everyday lives.
That person can be a parent or a child, a partner or a friend, a neighbor or a coworker. It really doesn’t matter, because in one way or another we’re all living through an unprecedented situation, one that came without recipes or instructions manuals.
Health scares. Financial troubles and unemployment. Loneliness. Depression. Those have always been some of the biggest obstacles to our collective happiness, and they’ve only been exacerbated by the current state of affairs.
Share them. Talk about them. Open up.
Fight them with love and companionship and kindness, because the only way out of this predicament is together.
So play that doubles match. Cook a special meal for 2 -- or more. Embark on that binging journey. Or simply tackle your fitness or spiritual goals with that someone tailor-made to push you to your next level.
Doing it as a team is always more fun. And in this day and age, it’s only become more essential.
