Boy did March ever come in like a lion and with it Covid-19, closures, quarantines, and of course the great toilet paper shortage of 2020. Luckily for me, I have been accustomed to working from home, BUT I am used to working from home in solitude, my only companion our loyal, faithful Chocolate lab. Covid-19 put a stop to many things including peace and quiet at my house. My husband is working from home and I never realized how much time he is on the phone for work. My daughter is studying and doing a great job at home school FROM home, and my work, thankfully, has been busier than ever. My organizational and management skills have been put to the test. Luckily, we all seem to be getting the hang of it. I think a lot of it has to do with being willing to let things go and practicing a lot of grace with each other. I mean honestly, it is not like any of us have anywhere else to go.
How are you handling the changes? I know that although we are all in the same boat, we are all not rowing the same course. Some of us are working, biz as usual, just from home, surrounded by our loved ones, in our makeshift home office. Others are out of work, and stressing about survival details, and still others are dealing with health issues that all of us fear.
I’ve no answers for any of us, other than deep breaths, sneak away to a quiet corner and breathe, just breathe. Get outside when you can. Shower! And remember, your home is filled with your most important treasure. Your people, your tribe, that you love and adore, even when they are driving you crazy. Hang in there my friends. There is always something to be thankful for, and always a lesson to be learned.
