These are tough time with so many anxiety producing facets. Will I have a job when this is over? How will I pay for food, rent, expenses? Am I going to survive being with my family and keep my mental health?
All very valid concerns, but for a lot of us this is the first time we have been home for an extended time. The first time our overcrowded schedules have lessened and haven’t needed an alarm clock or Siri telling us where to go next.
Let all try to savor just a bit of something every day. Morning coffee leisurely sipped rather than gulped, your favorite tune showing up randomly, a sunny moment even if viewed through the window.
The bottom line here is we have to go through this hellish time anyway. The personal loss is staggering, lost loved ones, careers gone, relationships in tatters. If we are going to withstand all these assaults to our lives then we need to find those moonbeams and sunshine or we won’t survive this pandemic.
Take care, Kathy
