The world shows signs that it will soon begin to open up. While we must remain vigilant for a time longer, there is light at the end of this tunnel we have found ourselves in and now is the time to begin to seek out opportunities beyond our own front doors.

Explore your options, be cautious but optimistic about the possibilities.
