Social Distancing, the New Normal?

March 25, 2020

Could you ever in a million years imagined that we as a nation would be asked to practice “Social Distancing” and stay home from work in 2020?

2020 was supposed to be a year of high hopes, a new decade filled with personal growth, economic strength, and overall abundance. The Covid-19 pandemic is something to be taken seriously and we all have an obligation to live and act responsibly. It has also provided the space and opportunity for us to take a step back and reflect on the things that are most important and dear to us. It’s in these unprecedented times when we realize that our family, friends, community, and the well-being of our nation and our world are what’s most treasured.

Now that we are living and working virtually, there is time to connect with family and friends. This mandated “shelter in place” provides the opportunity for us to take care of the human part of our lives where we might not have had the space to do so before.

People are revisiting or maybe even learning new skills like sewing, baking, crafts, and gardening. Old fashioned card/board games, reading, or drawing may be a new part of your daily routine. I’ve seen vinyl and classic music become more appreciated through social media right now. Even I have had the time to enjoy working in my yard, bringing to fruition the design I’ve had in mind for a long time.

This global pandemic is tragic and painful for many but there are silver linings to be found in this experience as well. Together we are stronger and together we can weather any storm.

Be well, stay safe, and reach out if we can be of any assistance.
