Awakened

The pandemic has awakened people to the inadequacies of their lives. Running around within the structure of a rat race that was unquestioned was examined in earnest when people found themselves at home pondering its value.

Reassessing in the quiet has made some question whether their career choices made sense and how they have impacted their time with spouses and children and even aging parents.

My own evaluation had me looking back and reflecting on just how much rigor and responsibility was sold to my generation under the auspices that it brought us great value. I am unsure about that value now but it matters less at the end of a career full of discipline.

The tables have been turned on all of us and the restructuring of the relationship between employer and worker is necessarily not going back to where it once was.

And thank God for it.
