Covid-19 has brought the world to its knees, but that doesn’t mean we should neglect our feelings for the foreseeable future either.
In the last week since my husband got laid off, I’ve observed my own emotional roller coaster of journey and it has been an ugly one. One second I’m scared and in the next I’m crying. Followed by resignation and then abundance and gratitude.
The truth is we’re all a little scared right now with this being considered the “new normal”. I hate that term immensely, but to a degree it’s the truth.
We just need to remember how to breath and learn how to work around this and be an active part in the solution. Truly. It’s the only way we’re gonna beat this thing and minimize the death toll world wide.
So, the next time you’re at the grocery store, remember that you’re not prepping for the Zombie Apocalypse. Just enough for two weeks in the event you contract flu like symptoms. There’s no need to hoard a 6 month supply of bathroom tissue, dried or canned goods.
Just on the news last night a health care worker who had just gotten off work, went to the grocers and found no food. She then posted a plea online to those online (I assume using her phone in her car) that be mindful there are others who still need to care for themselves and their families amidst this crisis and it isn’t just all about you. This video upset me greatly.
We are all going through this together and should be compassionate toward our fellow citizens. Many folks are losing their jobs. Many are still homeless or displaced. Many already live on measly social assistance.
Remember that there are many who live on far less on the other side of the world and without some of the creature comforts we cannot bare to part with.
We are in this together and should fight it together, so when our health care professionals and governments tell us to stay home and shut domestic and international borders down in the interest of public safety, head those warnings with urgency. We are a global community all hurting, but we all need to do our part.
I won’t bore you with a long post, but I did want to get this off my chest for days now.
May you all be healthy and safe and remember to check in on our neighbours. May you all remember that we are abundant and gracious human beings with a warm heart.
God Bless & Love and Light to You All.
