Unless you happen to live in a very remote part of our planet with no access to technology of any sort, you are most likely feeling a little stressed as a result of our current state of affairs!
We are maneuvering through very challenging times. It’s unnerving to say the least.
But here is the message I felt compelled to share with you today:
Be the calm in the storm.
I am not suggesting you bury your head in the sand or not stay informed. It is important we keep up to date through reliable sources, but rather than be that person overloading on the incessant talk of Covid-19, allowing the feeling of panic to seep in to every pore of our being, I encourage you to take a deep breath and practice a bit of normal each day; to remain calm.
Panic creates panic. Lord knows we are all feeling it but all the more reason for us to collectively work together to reset the balance we know as everyday life.
Find creative ways to connect with loved ones & friends, especially those who may be facing such challenging times on their own. Reassure those who are feeling anxious that we will get through this….together….because we will.
Last evening, prompted by one of my very dear girlfriends, we rallied a group of us via conference call, shared a glass of wine (or two) & just chatted for about an hour. It was so good to hear their voices rather than via text or email. To just catch up.
One of the gals shared that she had spent the last few days sorting through that giant bin of LEGO most of us have in our houses from when our kids were small. She found it to be a very satisfying activity, reorganizing all of the pieces, colour coding them and dividing them into bins so that one (her grandchildren) could actually find what they were looking for.
Then she sent us this picture this morning which literally made me laugh out loud! The caption read, “Brought in reinforcements to help hold down the fort”.
I know who I shall be building with next time I play with LEGO. Brilliant right?😲.
Be the calm in the storm my friends. We will get through this.💕
What are you doing to pass the time? Do tell!
