We all have our little pick-me-ups that get us through challenging times - a ritual or treat that gives us a little pep in our step.

During these unprecedented times, those little treats become even more important to our mental and emotional stability.

A motto that has gotten me through stormy times is this lovely line from Mary Anne Radmacher: "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes, courage is the little voice at the end of the day that whispers - I'll try again tomorrow". Isn't that just so beautiful and simple and true right now?
