Day 16 – Day One of something new …

Day One of something new … People around the world experienced this Day One weeks or months ago. They seemed to have survived so I know I will too. It’s just getting from point A to point B. I know I’ll make it through today, probably limping a little since e-anything is not my forte. So that’s par for the course. The e-stuff will get easier as the week goes by but it’s the other part, the mental part, staring at my computer or phone for hours on end anticipating not a lot of activity. How to combat boredom? Again, millions of people around the world had the mental strength to do it, so I will make myself do this too. Day one might seem o.k., and day two, not so bad, but day three and four and so on is where I anticipate the difficulty. I should feel happy and fortunate. I live in a house, I have food, a car, people around me. I live in an area that’s safe, I can get out and take my dog for a walk (many walks!). When I look at it from this lens, it really doesn’t sound so bad. So maybe I sit in front of my computer and experience a little boredom, frustration, or whatever emotion of the day, there is no reason and no excuse why I can’t survive this. Be positive, be grateful, anticipate the best for today is Day One of something new.

  1. Love the prose in this piece! So succinct yet powerful and full of the tension that I know many will be experiencing in the coming days/weeks … I am right there with you we were just informed of closing today.

  2. I do not know what today or what the rest of the days to come will bring… how many parents are really going to reach out? What really is our expectation? I feel like I have become Luke’s teacher though trying to keep him occupied… we’ll see how long that lasts!
