Living In Our New Norm

Coming Up for Air

Good morning, good morning, good morning!

I’ve been M.I.A. for a while as, I too, have been digesting this weird alternate reality we’re all living in. It’s so strange to be living during a world pandemic and trying to understand what that means. And I’ve meaning to jump on here and share some things with you but didn’t know really what to say.

Definitely didn’t want to be another person sharing false information. No matter how much I read or watched, I will never have all the facts the officials have. So, I figured I’d do my part and stay indoors and hope 30 days comes and goes pretty quickly. I had plans for 2020 and it’s not off to a great start.

I wanted to check in with you as well and see how you’re holding up. I know not everyone relishes the idea of staying home all day long. Not everyone’s home life is pleasant for them to want to stay home so this can be a very stressful time for some. And staying home for a lot of people means lossing out on money.

Now, I’m very fortunate to still have full time employment that also allows me to work from home. I would hate to be commuting back and forth and further expose my health. And inĀ  the light of everything, it does seem that having a job right now is better than being a freelancer or an independent contractor. But not really. Many — like thousands – of people have been laid off because their companies were not essential and had to shut down. So even having a job doesn’t protect you from a global event such as the one we’re experiencing.

Being a hustler and a freelancer gives us a chance to be more creative now than ever. We have to look at this horrible situation and think what good can come from it and what good can we do. Definitely think about what good you can do. Too many people already out there price gouging and hording that we don’t need to add to the problem.

So… in this time of uncertainty, I hope we can all lean on one another for support but also look within ourselves and see how we can rise to the occasion. And if you want to talk, let’s talk.

Stay indoors if can and be safe!
