So how are you? Honestly? This little meme has been going around on Facebook for awhile and today I am wondering how everyone is doing.
It’s been awhile since I have been anywhere and I am feeling a bit antsy. My favorite activities have been curtailed and it is disconcerting at times. The new normal kind of stinks at times.
We continue to be very careful about our activities and walk and hike within Connestee Falls where we live. I have only done one grocery curbside pickup from The Whistlestop Market, have not visited a grocery store in over a month, have only gotten take out food from our clubhouse curbside service and have not gone anywhere other than to drop a package off at the post office that was all ready to go. I wore a mask and had no contact with anyone.
It is a very weird way of living. For someone who enjoys being with friends and family it is difficult. So many events have been cancelled or postponed and it makes me sad but I know it is necessary. I am fortunate to live with someone that I really love and we are keeping each other amused. Thank goodness for that.
But not everyone is doing okay and it is understandable. This is a lot to deal with. It’s okay to not be doing okay. It really is. But if you are struggling please let someone know. Let me know. Even if I am not geographically close I can figure out how to help and I will. Don’t be silent. Reach out to someone and let them know. You are not alone.
I am confident that we will look back on this time and reflect on how we all made some discoveries while we were staying home. Some of us will have a new found love of the outdoors. Some of us will have discovered a new hobby or rekindled an old one. Some of us will become avid puzzlers or readers. Some of us will discover that we are content to be homebodies.
So tell me – how are you doing? If you had to place yourself on the above scale what color heart would you be? Let me know in the comments and Comment for a Cause – WHO Covid Solidarity Fund.
