Preparing for Re-Entry…

Is it ever going to happen? In a really long and strange 8 weeks (tomorrow) we’ve gone from helping hands, gardening, cooking, binge watching shows, eating everything, calling old friends to evil eyeing the person not wearing a mask in their car or frontward (really) to fear and anxiety over loss of income, to kids forgetting how to add and subtract in high school and the hyper divide seems to be growing. So I ask us all can we please start putting this energy into preparing for re-entry because no matter how you feel about lock downs, protesters, masks, beach access and our leaders the truth is we are going to have to step back into a world so foreign and find a way to own it again. I am faced with this challenge myself as I prepare to come back to work over the next weeks and decide what limitations I will apply, what risks I won’t take and what is essential in beauty. The process of thinking this though has helped me understand more the importance of human contact and the confidence you get from someones’ smile, the twinkle in their eye and yes those laugh lines that tell you they’re a real person! What will beauty be in the post shutdown reality? I think it will be the same but, more real. People will come to love that other people love them with roots, a few more lines and even pounds. And people will still strive to make themselves look better to be better and for me that is the joyful and hopeful lesson I am taking from this bizarre moment in our collective history. The fact is as a people we Americans strive to be better all the time. We are collectively the little engines that could. My clients have stayed in touch, they want to come back in and they want to talk and discuss what to keep and what to give-up in their beauty regime. We’ve all changed but, I think for the better – we will make it through this and come out stronger bolder and more beautiful than we could have imagined. So embrace this reset, re-entry it’s an adventure. – RR
