What a world we live in.
I fortunately/unfortunately still get to go to work everyday amid the COVID-19 pandemic. I’m thankful for the paycheck and distraction. I’m also scared that I’ll get infected. Thankfully, I live alone, so the only people I see are my coworkers—overall less people to spread it to if I do get it.
Either way, the atmosphere is absolutely insane and, like my brother told me, we are literally living history right now. It’s overwhelming and I’m not sure what to think about it.
The last two weeks have been incredibly stressful with not knowing what the state was going to do and not knowing what my employer was going to do. I can relax now having answers to both. Minnesota starts the “stay at home” order today and it goes through April 10th. My employer… well, nothing really has changed there.
Despite only half of that feeling safe and like the right decision, I do feel calmer overall. I’m also excited to start focusing on things again, like this blog, my book, my health, and the cleanliness of my apartment.
And most importantly, I’m excited to enjoy nature (by myself and six feet away from friends). To start off, here are some photos from my latest social distancing walk.
As the snow is melting here and we are gearing up for Spring, I’m thankful for the fall like colors of the last three photos. 😉 Also, thankful I brought my friend into the photography life and now get fun photos of myself, haha!
I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. We will get through this! At least, we can tell ourselves that until we do—despite what people may think, words hold a hell of a lot of power.
We will get through this!
