Smile, it is the One Thing You Can Control
So We are How Many Months into this Now?
Who would have thought back in the first week of March that we would still be struggling with this curve ball Mother Nature as thrown directly into our face. We followed the rules, we hunkered down for a few weeks (months) that felt like forever and we came out the other side. Now what?
I can't stress enough how amazed I am at the ability we have to adapt. I myself, am a Type A personality, a planner, a list maker, a person that does not enjoy surprises let alone curve balls. Yet here I am learning how to cope. I've thrown caution to the wind and learned how to roll with those sucker punches. I've had to adapt to continue to live. To be able to continue to do what I love and still enjoy the people I love as well.
I think Mother Nature is forcing us to become adaptable. Those that adjust, survive, and those that continue to fight and try to control everything will eventually just exhaust themselves. So here I am, with the news almost permanently turned off, living in my little bubble smiling because it is the one thing I can fully control (although you can't see it under my mask) and continuing to live life. Life is the here and now and I just can not dwell on the then or may be.
So let us smile, look at those beautiful leaves, breath in the crisp air, go for a walk and soak up the sunshine, because tomorrow will be what it is but today is amazing.
