A Positive Spin On This Coronavirus
If you're like me, you're trying to be smart. You're staying home and you're rescheduling your entire life in order to avoid the possibility of getting this virus. (My allergic asthma does not make me want to risk it...I just got back on two feet from breaking my ankle!)
But being at home has its disadvantages.
1. You have time to think–and worry.
2. You might experience cabin fever.
3. You get bored.
4. You get lonely.
I woke up this morning in a silent panic. I live in a tourist-driven town, and no one is here. I have a rental property that no one is staying in. I have money in the stock market. And again, my health puts me at risk if I were to get this thing. So, I did what I usually do: I grabbed some coffee and wrote in my journal.
"I'm scared." That's how I started the entry. I find it's the best way to just lay it all out there. I proceeded to list all the things I was afraid of. And then once all that was out of my head, it's like a tunnel opened up to some wonderful news: I have time to do the things I have been putting off.
There are only so many hours in a day, and for the past few months, I have had to pick and choose according to the squeakiest wheels in my life. I'm sure you feel the same way. That's life right?
But now I have time for the projects I've been putting off! i.e. Finish up the UNSTUCK course and the course I haven't even had time to announce yet: a course for SINGLES who want to be mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared for their next relationship (or marriage). I am so excited about both of these, and now that I realize I have time to do them, I see this time as a gift!
(At least in terms of productivity.)
So, what does that mean for you? What have you had to put off because life got in the way? What have you had to put on the back burner? Projects in the house? Organization? Spring cleaning? Changing your winter wardrobe over to spring?
DO IT NOW! Plus, it's way better than sitting around in panic mode. Trust me on that.
