A friend on face book and sparks GLORIAB83 posted this and I thought it spoke volumes!
I know some complain of climbing the walls and going stir crazy, but there are some things to do that can help boost our morale. While in this temporary situation of social distancing, yet up close and personal with our spouse or partner, everything is transparent. We may lack the space we ordinarily have, and notice every little thing.
I like to remember this will not last forever, but until things lift, there is sure to be some inconveniences, but making the most of it is the only way to live.
Our governor issued a STAY HOME policy like other states, and we are abiding by the rule. My husband is out of work for now; It would be easy to get bent out of shape, growl and complain, but we are enjoying the time with each other, knowing the situation won't last indefinitely.
I think about all the many people across the land who live alone, who have no reassuring voice to say, "We will get through this." "We have before and we will again."
My hubby and I have teamed up like never before. We work together taking one room at a time, to deep clean, dust, vacuum, de-clutter and then shampoo all the carpets. Is this because we are afraid of the 'virus getting us?" No--not at all. I do this deep cleaning every year and inbetween. But now I have help and he is here to move furniture and shampoo.
After accomplishments, we are spontaneous, spending time with our little pets, take time to put our feet up and read a book, listen to uplifting music, and go for a walk in the sunshine.
Don't look down. Look Up! Brighter days are sure to come-and they will!
I also starting a new habit--which I am going to sincerely work on- for all seasons. Any time I start to complain, I stop and say something positive instead. "Look--the sun is coming out!" Complaining changes nothing but it adds to the negativity.
I wish you well, and thank you for reading! Remember, this too shall pass!
