Have you thought about what your definition of Normalcy is? With all the changes that have taken place in the last few weeks, I can say that my definition has changed for sure.
My day to day of going to work and back hasn’t changed. I continued to work during all the shut downs. For which I am so grateful. But my life after work has definitely changed. Not getting to see my kids, not being able to take off and drive wherever I want, not being able to even go to the park of my choice!
My kids are old enough I didn’t have to teach them from home, but they had to teach from home and work from home. And for the ones of us who are social beings and love to be around people, it is a whole new definition of social media.
Thank goodness for Zoom, and Marco Polo, and Facetime and all those other aps that allow us to see each other.
I’m one of those people who is a hugger and I can say that this has been hard not being able to give hugs or get hugs. I’m waiting for the day that I can hug people again and not worry about where they have been or who’ve they’ve been in contact with. Cause I know where I’ve been!
One more thing that I miss when being in public is giving and getting smiles. It is pretty difficult to have anyone recognize that smile you are giving under that mask.
“A smile is your greatest social asset.” – Zig Ziglar So as we move forward with how our lives have changed, let’s be grateful for what we have, smile every day and pass them around and just be nice to each other.
Our planet has been given a rest from all the negative things that have been affecting it. Now that we’ve had time to give ourselves a rest – let’s remember the little things and live life to the fullest.
