Giving What We Can盡我們所能地付出


Thank you to the healthcare heroes


This week I want to focus on giving thanks for the wonderful people who are working so hard to keep us safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. While there may seem like things are really low when our work is impacted, relationships may be strained, loved ones are kept apart, and our routines disrupted, we can get a very quick reality check on what’s important from one look at the people pulling together to protect and serve others during this time.

Health care workers, such as my older sister, are digging deep to work extra hours, deal with overcrowded hospitals and comfort the sick and scared at this time. Never mind if they may feel scared themselves, they show up everyday and go far beyond what their job actually entails because their hearts are huge, their skill sets are vast, and their strength is awe-inspiring.

While many of the rest of us can’t be on the frontlines just as health care workers can, we can let our appreciation be known and also do our part to ease the suffering of others during this time. We can try to emulate their selflessness and generosity through using the skills we do have to bring comfort to others.

So this week, I chose a song from waaayy back when I was in high school with my older sister. While I can’t be there to pat her on the back, or make her a meal after an exhausting day at the hospital, I can hope a few minutes of having a dance party in her living room can do something to keep her in good health and spirits to continue the amazing work she does.

Thank you to all of the nurses, doctors and other health care workers that are in our community and out in the world.

If you know someone who could use a smile put on their face by having a dance made for their favorite song, please contact me. If you yourself, have any special requests or need support during this time, don’t hesitate to tell me. Tomorrow I will be doing another free live stream at 10:30am Taiwan time so that no matter what the situation around the world is, we will find ways to stay connected.

Keep moving! xx, Katie



醫護英雄們,謝謝你們!

這周我想要感謝在新冠疫情期間,這些為社會持續付出、辛苦工作的醫護人員們。現在看起來我們工作受影響、關係變得緊張、與所愛的人分開、以及我們的日常變得不平常,但是只要看看在這段期間不停地辛勤地服務與保護我們的醫護人員們,面對我們的現實便能很快地產生不同的看法。

醫護工作人員,像是我姐姐,需要不停地加班、處理超載的病患,同時還要安撫這些生病與害怕的人們。即使他們也會感到害怕,他們仍然每天站在在第一線做許多超出他們工作內容的範圍,因為他們寬大的心胸、廣泛的技能、與激勵人心的堅強。

然我們不能像他們一樣站在第一線付出,但是可以讓他們知道我們的感謝,並且盡我們所能力來減輕他人的痛苦。我們可以試著向他們的大方無私看齊,利用我們擁有的能力為他人帶來一些慰藉。

所以這周,我選的這首歌是和姐姐一起念高中的回憶。雖然我沒有辦法在她身旁拍拍她的背,或是在她辛苦工作一天後做飯給她吃,但是我希望藉由幾分鐘的「客廳舞蹈派對」,能幫助她保持身體健康與心情愉快,讓她能繼續這個偉大的貢獻。


謝謝台灣以其全世界所有的護士、醫生以及其他的醫護人員。

如果你知道有誰需要「將他們愛的歌編成一支舞」的鼓舞,請與我聯絡;如果是你自己在這段期間需要一些支持,想要屬於你的快樂,也不要猶豫與我聯絡。明天我也會在台灣時間 10:30,免費直播第二堂課,不論世界發生時麼事,我們會繼續找到保持連結的方法。



繼續前進!

愛你的 Katie
