So now what? What’s After COVID?


CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – If you’re reading this, you have survived the pandemic so far. Sadly, too many didn’t make it. But you did.

If you’re like me, your life has changed in subtle ways. And not so subtle ways. Friendships have been broken, new friends have emerged, routines have been disrupted.

And if you’re like me, you’re still feeling whiplash over everything that has happened.

So now what? What’s After COVID?

I’ve been pondering this question since being vaccinated.

“I don’t know” is the answer that comes to mind immediately, but if I push myself to dig deeper and examine my life, I start to see the patterns, people, and things that I want to leave behind. And those I want to take with me into this next season.

I have to remind myself that the question is not:

“How is life going to change after COVID?”


“How should I change my life change AC?”

I have a role in what happens next. I get to create this next season.

You have a role in what happens next. You get to decide what you bring with you, who you love, what you do.

So let’s get started.
