Finding good in the bad.
These are weird times. At least for me.
I haven’t been told to avoid socializing since I was grounded as a teenager by my parents.
But, here we are social distancing ourselves. Who came up with that term any way?
Did you ever imagine this would be the world we live in? Certainly not as “free” Americans. We are in uncertain times, friends. It’s an uneasy feeling.
BUT, instead of sitting inside and dwelling on the fact that I cannot visit my friends or family, go shopping or eat out. I’m going to focus on what I do have.
I’m choosing to find the good in the bad.
- Everyone in my family is healthy and all of my friends are healthy.
- FaceTime or video chats. I cannot physically get together with my girlfriends for a night out, but we can video chat with each other–wine in hand–and not have to worry about who is going to be the designated driver.
- Endless snuggles and kisses from my 14 week old puppy.
- I have the ability to work from anywhere in the world. Right now that is in the comfort of my own home.
- Groceries can be delivered to my doorstep.
- Uber Eats is offering free food delivery from local restaurants (BONUS: our Texas governor just made it possible for alcoholic beverages to be delivered with food).
- I live in a neighborhood with endless trails so I can get out of my house and walk.
- Said neighborhood is filled with people who support and take care of each other.
- Endless viewing opportunities with Netflix and Hulu.
- Watching the seasons change from my backyard view (see cover photo).
I could go on and on, but I’m sure you get the picture.
Find good in the bad.
It really isn’t hard to do.
How are you passing this time of social distancing? I would love to hear.
Live healthy, my friend, and remember that age is just a number.
