To say I’ve been using this quarantine and work from home situation to my advantage would be a complete understatement. I have been milking the hell out of this situation. Instead of waking up super early and commuting an hour to work and sitting in traffic. I have been getting up early doing my home work out, going through my emails all while doing my morning face mask routine and taking long ass showers. I get all this done before I sit in-front of my laptop and start my eight hour remote work day. I refuse to waste this time and so I have been milking it as much as I can. These are things I would not be able to do during the week.
There are many different things that you can do to make this crazy time valuable, despite the circumstances. We’re never going to be given this time ever again this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that we all get to live through. Yes it’s terrible, people are losing jobs, people are dying. Will we be able to recover financially? how will the world look after this is done? This is another world tragedy, and we are the current victims. I do believe there is a Bible story that speaks about something very horrible happening and the moral of the story was finding the good in the situation. There are many Bible verses like that I can’t remember the exact one I think it had something to do with honey and a lion.
We are going through something we won’t fully understand until years after this is done. However think about the past and what the world was like in times like this. During war people could not sleep in peace, shortage of food was serious and scary. The supermarkets weren’t low on inventory, no access was cut. People were afraid of being blown to bits by a bomb, men breaking into homes, and mass murders. They were afraid of having to run away to safety, and no way to communicate with family, friends or loved ones.
Other viruses such as measles, or even small pox, when these rocked the world, there was no social media, internet, Netflix or even Tik Tok. Yes times are uncertain but compared to past pandemics, we should consider ourselves lucky. If I wasn’t working remote Monday to Friday, I would be spending a lot more time learning a second language. I’m trying to master Spanish right now and really wish I had more time to watch some Spanish Novella’s, (is that what they’re called). If you are on social media complaining about being bored, you aren’t struggling with this pandemic you’re being childish.
I’ve been rearranging my furniture, cleaning my fridge, painting my own nails and last night I spent two hours braiding my own hair. I currently look like a crack head, but it’s ok. There are so many people spreading conspiracy theories and sending half of us into a crazed the world is ending frenzy. Follow your local authorities, they may not always be right but sift through it, think critically and do the right thing. Stay home if you dont need to be out. For all the essential workers out there especially the delivery people, who deliver our packages. I can’t tell you how much I pray for them, they bring so much joy to my week. We praise our medical staff but we always leave them out. Have an amazing week everyone and to those of us struggling more than most, “This too shall past”
