Raise your hand if 2020 has turned your life upside down….
I’m sitting over here raising not one, but both, of my hands. I remember hearing rumblings of “this coronavirus thing”. I asked all my doctor and nurse friends about it. Didn’t seem like that big a deal back in February.
Fast forward to July. As it turns out, coronavirus and it’s associated illness, COVID-19, are a freaking huge deal. People are dying, it’s now normal to wear a mask in public, and businesses have closed their doors for good – including the one I worked at for the last 9 years. There’s a energy of unrest all around.
My attitude has been mostly optimistic. I am a person who tries to see the good in things, even when they’re bad, probably to preserve myself from getting sucked into darkness. I believe that things generally work out they way they are meant to. My son, Miles, provides me with laughter, joy, and hope for a bright future. I am so grateful for him during this time.
It has been quite a while since I have written here, but I want (and need) to get back into writing as a creative outlet for myself. I want to use this blog as a way to share my experience and knowledge. I thank you for reading and hope that you learn something or find something you can relate to.
