Navigating This Strange World
Man, what a surreal life we are all living at the moment. So many uncertainties and not much within our own control. As stated in the quote above, we are trying to remain sane in a world boring on insane… all the while starting to feel lonely and distant from those we love.
Everyone is coping with the uncertainties of this Global Pandemic differently. There are ones who panic and go into survival mode (AKA hoarding toilet paper), and those who feel so fear stricken and full of anxiety they can hardly do anything, then there are those who try to remain calm and practice to keep their days as “normal” as possible. What is “normal” now? What will life be like after this “storm”?
Take time to reflect on your life as it has been and as you’d like to see it going forward. Let’s ponder on how we can be and do just a little better for ourselves and our children. Let’s create some meaningful moments! This is something we can control and can do during a Pandemic.
What have you discovered about yourself over the last few weeks?
What meaningful moments have you created?
We can only hope that we will indeed come out better after all of this.
Below I will list a few things that have helped me through this strange and distant time.
One that has helped keep things in perspective for me is listening to a new Podcast by Brene Brown called Unlocking Us. You can find the full Podcast HERE. She has this amazing ability to say things as they are and allow you to feel and find comfort in that. Plus, it’s actually quite entertaining!
But, seriously, go listen to ALL the episodes!
Zoom! Talking with multiple friends and family at once and enjoying Happy Hour together!
Another fun app is Houseparty! You can find it HERE. This is similar to Zoom where you can have multiple people on at a time, but you can also play games and join in on anyone’s conversation without being invited 😉
