This is a uniquely challenging time. Many of us are isolated inside–worried about our health, our families, our communities, and our future. As we figure out how to adapt, it’s important to remember that we’re not alone. By giving voice to our experiences, we can remind other Texans that they aren’t either.

Tell us about your experience and perspective on thriving as we adjust to this new normal. What’s working? What isn’t? What’s made you feel discouraged or hopeful? What are you learning (about health, well-being, and life) along the way?

We’re looking for stories of approximately 200 – 800 words to add to our #texansthrive story bank and share on social media. Thank you for using your voice to make a difference.
