I know I’ve used this picture before but…
In the beginning of all this mess, I have to admit I thought it was much ado about nothing
Now I realize the situation is serious, even if we don’t want it to be. We can ignore the news, stick our heads in the sand and pretend nothing is happening, yet it is. The word is on lockdown until the virus is wiped out, and we have to comply or deal with the consequences. It is tough, but together we will get through it. Do what the sign above says, and stay in touch with family and friends, we need them now more than ever!
Pray, continue your church services and giving tithes through livestreaming and donate buttons, they need to keep going as well.
Stay busy, cook, read, write, create. Help where we can. Say something positive, write something epic, like your autobiography. Are you a good person? What would you want to leave behind? Did you help someone in some way? Create content that will help someone, figure out a way to be useful. Plant a garden. So many things we can be doing right now to make true meaning out of this nightmare.
I’m trying to do my part by sharing meals with the family, helping Dad when he needs it, creating content that might be inspiring or helpful, like recipes for folks who have never cooked but want healthy meals so they don’t get fat with all the sitting around. I’m struggling myself, being a writer means sitting a lot, so I’m thinking of ways to stay active and I get up and move around frequently. Do those chores around the house you’ve been putting off. Sell your stuff once you’ve cleaned your closet, maybe you can make a little extra pocket change on Ebay, 5Mile, or Offer Up.
We can do this people, it’s not going to last forever, I hope! I’m not buying into the message the media is trying to sell though, I don’t believe this is our “new normal.” I choose to believe things will get back to normal as we knew it, although it may be a better normal than before because we will have learned some valuable lessons through it all.
Happy Monday, let’s do something positive today, let’s spread some HOPE!!
