We wake up and everything feels so normal to some that we sometimes forget the chaos that is currently in the world. There are some who are still able to go to work because they have “essential jobs. Some daycare are still open and many are still able to go outside for a walk and even to the grocery store without any issues. We take the precautionary measures we hear are necessary but sometimes we ask ourselves if this is really necessary. Everything seems normal, at least on our end. Everyone is healthy and no one you know is directly affected. So, you start to think maybe it’s not so bad. “What’s the worse thing that can happen?” You ask yourself. You start to get less and less cautious thinking you’ve got this under control. But let me stop you right there!
DO NOT think because your life may still be normal right now mean it will remain that way without being careful. DO NOT think because no one you know is directing affected right now mean thousands are not currently suffering. Everything was normal for them too just before their lives were abruptly changed. DO NOT take your peace for granted and risk your loved ones getting exposed. Health can change in the blink of an eye. DO wash your hands, DO sanitized and clean frequently. STILL take your vitamins. Stay home unless you absolutely need to go outside. DO keep your kids home even if they are driving you crazy. It’s better for them to do that than for you to watch them fight for their lives.
This virus is SERIOUS. It can KILL. Don’t compare it to other diseases. Take it for what it is, a threat to us all. No one is exempt for certain. Do everything in your power to keep your family safe. It is better to be overly protective than not doing enough. Take this time to work on goals. Take up a new hobby. Start a new tradition. The more we try to enjoy our time, the quicker it will go by. Be safe. Take it easy and do your part to help health the world. ❤️
