There's a new Bon Jovi song out called "Do What You Can" with a powerful line that says: "When you can't do what you do, you do what you can."
It's a poignant song inspired by Bon Jovi's own experience during the pandemic. While he isn't currently able to do what he does (perform live concerts to sell out stadiums) he's now focusing on doing what he can do.
In his case, Bon Jovi has been spending more time washing dishes at the community restaurant he founded called JBJ Soul Kitchen, as the staff hurries to fulfill orders donated to people in need.
It's a valuable reminder that regardless of the circumstances—no matter where your feet take you, what your hands are doing, or the company that you keep—you can always find a way to express what's most important.
In other words, even when the world seems to be turned upside down, you can achieve balance when what you do dances in harmony who you are.
How does what you do reflect who you are?
