Discover Beautiful Rhode Island – Newport, RI with Jason Michalski

by Jason Michalski, contributing photographer

Boats don’t sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down.

Fear is a motivator to some which can help drive someone to become fearless. However, fear can hinder you, keep you stuck where you don’t have the means of getting out the situation. Do not allow the fear of all that’s happening to keep you from living.

We just adapt, improvise, and overcome this together! I’m here for you to help! We can’t control this situation at all, so all we can do is control our responses in how it makes us feel. It can make us feel bitter or better. Your choice.

I’m so grateful for all what’s happening and give a lot of gratitude in a lot of ways. Spending time with yourself, like really spend time, has been a blessing. It’s sad we had losses, but that’s part of life. We lose people and it hurts but we still have our lives while we mourn.

Life isn’t going to stop for you ! We have to become fearless to keep moving in this battle and we will win like we always do!
