I don't know about you but I've had a lot of time to think about life & how I interact with the world during the last couple of months. With the stay at home orders & everything that assimulates "normal life" ceased, it's made me pause. In no way am I discarding the pain of so many families losing loved ones during this time. I am simply working to find the light in the darkness. Consider the lessons Covid-19 is teaching the whole world.
A recurring question in my mind has been
Why did it take a worldwide pandemic to. . .
. . . realize that the elderly should always receive special treatment because of their weakened immune systems?
. . . look into people's eyes?
. . . rethink what makes us happy & what we want out of life?
. . . take time for ourselves to think, meditate, or go for a walk to clear our minds?
. . . think about our money situation & if we have a plan for emergencies?
. . . consider the little birds & critters that live in our neighborhood
. . . cherish time with family & friends?
. . . appreciate the sun?
. . . wipe down anything that comes into our homes?
. . . teach use how to use a stove?
. . . ask before touching someone?
. . . consider how our state of personal health affects our co-workers & family members?
. . . take time to write nice things to our neighbors?
. . . respect personal space?
. . . RE-teach us about sanitizing basics that we learned back in kindergarten?
. . . call your grandparents?
. . . that life is precious & isn't guaranteed to any of us? #BEMOREYOU
