"Dear Everyone... From Nicole"

A few weeks ago I had an interview on the Quarantine Phone Calls, which you can read about here. This is my Letter to the World.

Dear Everyone,

My heart goes out to you, whether you're here in Milwaukee or as far away as Iran, Japan, or South Africa. I want to send you courage. Courage to ask for the help you need, courage to face every moment as it arises. Courage to remember that every day is a step in the right direction.

I also want to send you honest. Honesty so you can feel every emotion you're feeling right now--all of it. It's all valid. I want you to be honest with yourself and the people in your life about what you're facing. Because your honest will give another person encouragement enough to do the same.

I want to send you compassion - so you are kind to yourself, kind to others, and so you can remind those around you that kindness is a choice -- and it's the right choice.

As I keep saying to my friends this week:

Hold steady. Keep going.

When you feel unsure:

Hold steady. Keep going.

When you're scared:

Hold steady. Keep going.

When you need to know what to do next:

Hold steady. Keep going.

As they say in German: Alles Gute! I wish you everything good.
