Finding Meaning In Little Things Within Our Control
January 27, 2021
A message from Dr. David Malloy, King's Principal:
This time of year, there is a lot of conversation online about ending the stigma wrongly associated with mental health issues and illnesses. On January 28, the King’s community received a virtual mental health wellness kit with tips and links to valuable services and supports available to them.
As always, I like to remind everyone to “Take care of yourself, take care of each other, and we’ll take care of this place.” This has been the motto in all of my communication to you since the pandemic began. I believed in it then and I continue to believe that this is, in fact, what we are doing and what we should be doing.
Following what may have been a less than rejuvenating Christmas holiday break, I worried that we would return to study, research and work at King’s without having recovered and recharged from last semester. So now, more than ever, this statement, this motto, is important to act upon. I want to share with you some ideas on how I try to find contentment instead of frustration - find peace instead of loneliness - during this current stay-at-home order.
Please reach out to me, to your friends and family, to our personal and pastoral counselling teams if you need help. Check your email for more information on the many supports and services in place for the King’s community. We will get through this challenging time together and be able to gather in person again soon.
Thank you for taking care of each other and for our sake, please take care of yourself.
