Less than a month ago, I was planning my 26th birthday festivities and now I cannot even leave the house. What started as a issue amidst China rapidly sore through to Europe and then it arrived to the states. Just two weeks ago, I was living a rather normal life and it all seems like yesterday when things were “normal.” In times like this having a pandemic in my time and age makes me rethink about my goals and wants.
Often, we are so focused on doing the next big thing that we don’t enjoy the NOW. When everyone is getting sick around us and dying from an illness, it makes you think about your loved ones, times when you could go to the beach with your friends, celebrating your child’s 6th birthday. All of these things.
I feel as though many of us forget to say I love you to those in your life or spend quality time with your loved ones. We get so caught up in our day to day routines from trying to stay fit, work, money, trends, social media, maintaining emotional stability, social life, dating, etc. When do we take a step back and think about what our real priorities are? Think about that today.
I hope you all are staying safe at this time and taking standard precautions. We will all get through this together one day at a time.
