Be of a Good Courage
Hey there guys! Long time, no posts am I right?? Life has been throwing curve ball after curveball for the past like year and we're still reeling from all that and then BOOM! Corona Virus hits everywhere. Don't worry this isn't another post on:
"How to entertain your kids during the Coronavirus" or "Ways to Connect During a Crisis". This is nothing but hope and happy vibes.
I know it's a little scary out there right now. People are acting completely out of character or not acting enough and putting people in danger. I'm not going to be writing a post about what you should or shouldn't do either, that's not my place, However I will say this: STAY THE FREAK HOME IF POSSIBLE.
Now, let's talk happy and hope. Think of how many families can now spend time together that normally don't get to. How much time people will realize they have to do the things they love. When was the last time you sat down with a good book? Drew a picture? Crafted a shirt or a sign? Wrote a poem? Took a nap in the middle of the day? Did laundry, folded AND put it away on the same day? (yeah me neither on that last one hahahaha)
I'm very grateful that all of this happened while my kiddos were already on their two week Spring Break. The transition we may have to make for schooling won't be as drastic for them for which I am grateful. My husband now works from home. This is also a transition and not permanent but it's been amazing to have him home while the sun is still out. He normally has at least an hour commute to and from work so this extra time has been amazing so far.
In this time of uncertainty and fear, remember the good! Time is something we always want more of. Now we've been given it. Let's use it to hone in on the important things like family, hobbies you've always wanted to learn, movies you've been wanting to see (on demand or streaming of course - social distancing y'all!!) and ENJOY the process and gift we've really been given.
It's still a good year. There is still so much potential for good to come from us coming together as a global family to combat this.
If you are still unsure and feeling anxious, for which I do not blame you at all. Everyone has different levels of tolerance for anxiety (fellow anxious one here), remember there are Heavenly Parents watching over all of us. We have the Almighty watching over us all and loves us. I know sometimes it seems a hollow comfort but I promise you They are there, Heavenly Mother and Father watch over us all and love us and know us by name. SO keep this scripture from Joshua in mind:
Stay safe everyone and lets write down everything good that happens everyday from all of this!
Here you will find love, magic, bookworm favorites, Disney tips, and a family on their journey to Happy Ever After!
