You’re stuck. And, I’m not just talking about mentally. I mean you’re physically stuck. Because, we’re all stuck. Basically, the outside is lava right now, and March has lasted for 849837 days. So, yeah, you’re probably mentally stuck, too.
But, you don’t have to be. Yes, there’s a lot of uncertainty around you right now. Yes, the world is chaotic evil at the moment. Yes, it’s a little like a bad episode of “Bad Mirror” right now. BUT, it’s also Spring. And, even though we’re going through a crazy time, Mother Earth said, “Bring on the flowers, warmer temperatures, and bright colors, anyway.” Everything is starting to bloom. There are yellows and purples, and pinks all over your own yards right now. There is sunshine that you can enjoy from your porch. The grass is growing. So, get your lawn care tools ready, because, unfortunately, you still have some adulting to do, even during a world pandemic. Spring is springing, y’all. Take comfort in knowing, that while it may seem like there’s no routines or normalcy anymore, Mother Earth is still keeping the same, steady pace.
“But I could care less about the outside. It’s humid, and there are bugs out there.” Yeah, I see your type, too. So, here’s the thing. There is so much to do inside your home during this time, too. Get creative. I mean really dig deep. You’ve been given the opportunity to expand your horizons. Learning French been on your to do list? Congratulations! You now have the time to do so. Ever wanted to learn how to crochet? Paint? Make a Corn Cob Pipe? YouTube is your friend! Learn something new. The possibilities are endless!
“I’ve already learned everything there is to learn. I’m the Master of every single trade.” O.k, I see you guys, too. So, all that power must be stressful. Might I suggest meditation or yoga? I’ve personally downloaded an app called: “Meditopia”, and it’s wonderful. I highly recommend. As for Yoga, I’ve pretty much mastered Mountain Pose. Not to brag, or anything.
I think you get my point, right? Now is the time to completely re-wire your brain to see the positivity that’s floating all around you. Think about how lucky you are, that you get to do your civic duty from the comfort of your own home. It feels lonely right now, but it’s all temporary. This will end. Life will return to normal, and these few months of worry and uncertainty will eventually be behind us.
So, now is the time to be thankful that all you have to do to save the world, is binge watch Netflix in your Christmas jammies, while eating cosmic brownies.
Depression, loneliness, and anxiety may try to take over, but you tell them to screw right off! You are stronger than this quarantine. You are a warrior, saving the world, one episode of Tiger King at a time. (Shout out to Joe Exotic, and that Bitch, Carole.)
