The silver lining

2021 coming through the other side of the 2020 Pandemic

After a year of our world being turned upside down, I stop to take a breathe and reflect on the Silver lining.

There is so much to reflect upon. Where do I began?

Our world came to a halt in March of 2020. Like many others, due to the Pandemic companies closed and work came to a complete standstill.

Lives were lost, jobs were gone, school was closed, entertainment was shut down, thankfully we were still able to access food and water.

We were among the lucky that survived the first wave of Covid-19. Wearing masks, following the CDC guidelines given by the State, and local government.

Thankful for those who still worked through the Pandemic, first responders, grocery workers, postal workers, delivery companies etc.

While we aren’t out of the woods yet, due to a variant, I have to say that the past year has shined a light on what is really important for me.

Health and Family.

We recently took a trip to see family in Hawaii who we hadn’t seen for 3 years. While we had to jump hoops to do it, I have to say that it was well worth it.

It was the one thing that we were all looking forward to, and it actually came to fruition.

While we knew that there were risks, we took all of the necessary precautions possible. Took the Covid tests, got our QR codes, got our vaccines, wore masks, kept at a distance from others the best we could, washed hands, etc.

My stress and anxiety level was moderate to high, but I wanted to be able to see my family. Once we arrived in Hawaii, the warm air, blue skies and salt water seemed to melt away any worries and we had an enjoyable week together.

What is something that you would like to do, but have reservations or stress & anxiety about doing it?
