Summer is here and after a year+ of COVID lockdowns, restrictions, grocery shortages, and masks, the world is ready to get out. Out to eat. Out to the movies. Out in the sun. Out to travel or see friends. Or just to get on with their lives. I, myself, have been ready for some time now to travel or just get back to normalcy, but these words are often easier said than done for a variety of reasons.
Just a quick Monday morning post to remind you to laugh and smile today. I am headed back to the office full-time this week after 13 months of partially working from home. We tried this once before in October, but within about a month we were back to part-time in the office again, thanks to the pandemic. So I think I will really need the positivity to get me through this week, as I expect it to feel longer than usual.
A positive attitude and the ability to laugh are key to good health and longevity. They do say that laughter is the best medicine, so why not give it a try. What have you got to lose!? 🙂
Obviously this post is a little late, as we are now in the 3rd month of 2021! I have started so many posts the last few months, only to get pulled away into something else. I am juggling some extra duties at work these days, as well as helping care for my mom after moving her across the country to be near me. So writing, painting, and other hobbies that give my life a sense of normalcy have taken a back seat.
And then 2021 has been a bit of a kick in the teeth for those of us living in Texas. Plus getting the second shot of my COVID-19 vaccine has caused a fibro-flare and perpetual exhaustion.
Even changing out my letter board has gone from weekly to monthly, or whenever I can find a few spare minutes. But here’s one from the New Year I am finally getting around to sharing.
“Every day is a fresh start…every sunrise is a new adventure.”
