Social Distance

time-1817725_1280-1

So many things have been taken for granted for a long time. Maybe you should have visited that old friend. (But you were just so tired after work)
Maybe you should have taken your significant other to that movie. (But it was just so late to stay up)
Perhaps you should have been a little more diligent in saving for a rainy day (that rainy day is now btw).
Maybe you should have made that trip to visit your parents or grandparents. (Next summer, right?)
We have all created habits, both good and bad. We have also gotten very comfortable in thinking “theres always tomorrow”. We will get through this but I suspect we will all have new appreciation and understanding of what is actually important to us, our priorities realigned.
Maybe, just maybe, this is a reset that we didnt know we need.

  1. Hi! How true! I and my husband waited to buy a car to be able to travel for 4 years. Something always came up…an assignment, laundry, a nasal congestion, and lack of will mostly. Now we have a car, but can’t go out because of the virus. Now we wish we had travelled earlier.

  2. I’ve scanned most of the family photos I’ve been hoarding from my grandparents and great grandparents and gone through the genealogy clips I’ve been stuffing in a folder for about 15 years. I think we’ll live through this virus mess, but if not, I want my children and grandchildren to know something about their heritage. —And there’s the book I’ve been writing for a dozen years. Time to get off the dime!
