It’s Day 2 of the mandatory 3 week long school closure here in my neck of the woods. It feels like Day 371!🤦♀️
Michigan is rapidly moving towards everything & everyone being locked down. Schools closed state wide, including the universities. Then large venues. Then casinos & movie theaters. And now bars & restaurants can only offer take out orders. People have been told to stay home if possible. Work from home if possible. No unnecessary traveling. Flights have been cancelled/delayed. Etc. Etc. Etc.
People are getting scared. The news & media have so many scrambling to get as much of everything that they possibly can. Even things they don’t need & won’t need. Because we, as humans, want to feel like we are in control of something, especially at times like these. The sad part is, those who are truly in need & at high risk, are having to go without because there’s nothing left. Toilet paper, kleenex, hand sanitizer, antibacterial soaps, disinfecting sprays & wipes, diapers, baby wipes, BABY FORMULA – all keeps getting wiped out of every store.
I’m not really sure how to feel about all of this quite yet. I’m not scared. I’m not going through panic mode and stocking up on everything. I’m not freaking out about being out of work(Thank God I have my Younique biz to fall back on🙌). I don’t feel like it’s the end of the world, like some are thinking. I honestly feel like the government & the media are making it out to be so much worse than it actually is. And so I’m very calm because I know GOD’S GOT THIS!!
Have faith. Pray. Spend time with your families. Build a stronger relationship with your kiddos. Have family dinners. Family game time. Movie nights. Read. Do whatever it takes to remain focused on the most important things in your life & I promise you, it’s not those 280 rolls of TP you’re hoarding!
Look around you. There are so very many things to be thankful for. The good Lord above has blessed you more than you realize. Remain calm. Turn off the news. Don’t read that media article. Don’t get so caught up in all the hype, that you forget to LIVE!! It may get “worse” before it gets better, but again, GOD’S GOT THIS!💯🥰💜
