So many words and phrases have been added to our vocabulary in just the past month and a half.
Flatten the Curve.
And let’s not forget, homeschooling. Not a new word, but so many of us have been thrown into it with very little foresight or planning.
There is so much anxiety, uncertainty, confusion, frustration, worry and just plain exhaustion out in the world today. I’ll be honest, there have been days when I have gotten out of bed and immediately started planning when I could get back into it.
The good news is we have been able to get out almost daily for walks and bike rides. That has really helped. Exercise has always been a means of rejuvenation and energy for me (I miss the gym!), and we have been so fortunate to have nice weather for the most part. Spring is here, my online friends have been keeping me company, I have lots of books to read (we live in the age of library kindle books- how amazing is that?) and we have been together as a family, so I guess if there was a “good” time for this to happen, it’s now.
The world keeps on turning, and we will heal from this. Life will continue on. Maybe we will be a little bit better for it on the other side.
I’m keeping everyone who has been affected by this horrible virus in my thoughts.
Hang in there, friends. Stay healthy and keep the faith.
The Serenity Project is a collaborative photography project. The goal the photographers participating share is to find moments of peace and calmness, even in difficult times. Please continue to Wendy May, NE Scotland Photographer to see what brought her some serenity this month.
