This is a phrase that anyone who’s into self-help/spirituality probably hears a lot. When you don’t “know” what to do, “Just do the next right thing.”
Sometimes it eludes us completely, other times, it is crystal clear.
For me, during the Covid-19 health crisis, it is the latter. I am a Physician Assistant who has worked in Emergency Medicine for many years. Through a series of synchronous events, prior to the crisis becoming the crisis it is, I found myself laid off my job with pay for 3 months. As I was looking for temporary positions while plans were laid for a permanent position, I was guided to serving in NYC.
I am here to be of service in whatever way I can be. Right now, it means taking care of people in a place and time where they need it so desperately. I am not afraid. I am not, at the same time, burying my head in the sand about the risks. I deeply feel that I am protected with all of the PPE available to me (which they have plenty of now) and my energetic disposition of “all is well.” My plan is to bring my expertise and Love to everyone I encounter.
Walk courageously today, then maybe tomorrow too.
Much Love to all of you!
