What we learn from Covid

Wednesday, June 02, 2021

First off, that despite lifelong short, shorter, shortest hair I can actually look sort of decent with it long. New cut yesterday. Best head massage EVER!!!!!

I learned the depths of my reclusive/introverted nature and don't really mind that.

I learned I need hobbies when weather turns ugly and turn off the t.v.

I learned the value of my dearest friends and the incredible healing power of their smiles and hugs.

I learned that there is a great sadness in humanity and it truly disturbs me how horrible some people are behaving post pandemic. The violence at sporting events, and on our streets. The brokenness anger and downright hate some people exhibit. Yet, there are people out there fighting through all that to give a hand up. I do have hope that we will come out of this a better people.

I find the (kind of trite) statement, "In a world where you can be anything, be kind", to be pretty relevant to where we are right now.

I find the sadness sometimes pulls me down with it and I need to remember that it's a small bit of the world that is making these horrible decisions and into the news.

Today is a beautiful day...so far. The weather people talked about rain but it's sunny and lovely for a walk with Hossa (dog) and some planting of the plants I purchased over the weekend. Boy do I need to stop buying plants. LOL

    Well said Charie. COVID has revealed those among us who lack coping mechanisms, lack civility, are selfish and demanding but hopefully the majority of us will carry forward with care and the desire to be helpful and a contributing member of our communities. emoticon

    I agree with so many of your insights here and can relate. Keep remembering....there are more good people out there than monsters, something I find easier to believe if I don't watch the news.

    I believe that Covid has changed us all, at least for the short term. I have found that you don't need to spend as much on take out or restaurants. I don't need to spend money at the mall. If i need something I can get curbside, but that simple act of ordering usually makes me think it over 2, 3 or 4 times, so I don't buy what I don't need. I communicate more by phone and internet more than I ever visited pre-Covid. I miss the human interaction, especially with my kids & grandkids, but that should straighten out shortly.
    Will we go back to the old pre-Covid ways or will we keep the best of what ha changed?

    Yes, Covid has taught us many life lessons. There are so many negatives out there but as you are, we must continue to look for the positives.
    Your haircut is cute. You look ready to take on the world and have some fun while doing it. 🙂

    HUGS and for sure, my heart is sad with all the hatred happening in the world. BUT don't have to be part of it. So, yes, kindness. That's the answer. For sure.

    HUGS my dear. Love the hair!

    Awright! A great insight into the Covid phenomenon.

    Make today the greatest day of your life
    Until tomorrow!
