I’ve been noticing a lot of articles and news stories lately talking about “Pandemic Fatigue” or the “Six Month Wall.”
Whatever it’s called, the concept is that many people right now are feeling weary and wondering when everything will get back to “normal.” How about instead of waiting around for “normal” to happen, we live our best lives in the here and now?
I don’t have any magic words of wisdom, but here is what I TRY work on daily:
Charlie and I challenge each other to name the BEST part of the day. Sometimes it’s hard to just pick one best part!
I can only control what I can control, including my reactions to others’ actions or words.
My favorite quotation is from Robert Louis Stevenson:
Plant seeds of gratitude, of joy, of calm – they will choke out the weeds that threaten to overwhelm us in challenging times.
