Posted by Erin Fischer on

In 2020 Covid hit our shores with it bringing lockdowns, isolation, panic buying, masks, fear and uncertainty. It also brought a time for the world to heal, with it giving scientists a once in a lifetime opportunity to observe what happens when you take humans out of the world and see animals reclaim what was once theirs.

Why It's Good to Cry

Posted by Erin Fischer on

You feel it building up, the lockdown get’s extended yet again, Covid cases are on the rise, you have to delay an event yet again and work is getting overwhelming. You feel the tears building in your eyes, but you blink them back because you can’t cry.

You get yet another job rejection after applying for what feels like 200 jobs and you felt you really nailed the job interview. You feel the tears building in your eyes, but you blink them back because you can't cry.

Home schooling isn’t working out with your kids because you find them making excuses yet again, you trip on the cat, and you can’t get any time for yourself. You feel the tears start building, but you blink them back because you can’t cry.
