I thought about disappearing for the Coronavirus pandemic, but then I rethought that. People have told me that they find my content as uplifting and refreshing. Why would I stop producing content that provides comfort in a time where people are most in need of it? I decided I would start posting helpful material as well.
On LinkedIn, Thrive posted a simple hack for washing your hands. Instead of singing “Happy Birthday” or counting, why not say three things you’re grateful for? Counting our blessings relieves stress and brightens our mood.
We’re in a moment of uncertainty, but that is also life. The other day I was trying to remain in my bubble, but instead I’m choosing to accept that we just don’t know what will happen. There’s a lot of uncertainty and I am grateful that I’ve found some kindness along the way. I won’t be able to work at the library during our quarantine, but I will get paid. I also reached out at work and I was given clearance to work from home via WiFi instead of Ethernet (I explained the situation too). I don’t know what the days and weeks will bring, but I accept what will come. That’s the only thing I can do. A therapist I follow on LinkedIn shared this article and I want to share it too: Coping in the Garden of Uncertainty
