The Challenge....

Being Present


It is so easy to fall into a funk, especially during this time. We long for any normalcy that we can find. What can we control? It may not seem like a lot at this moment with the news scaring us into staying home and loss of jobs. I was laid off Monday and I stayed busy playing catch up with all these things that have been pushed back to “I can do that later” those things were done. I am for the first time, glad that I am a procrastinator…. Then Tuesday, stir crazy set in… without driving all over Memphis and teaching, I have a lot of time on my hands. Wednesday, I set off to Chattanooga to visit my friend and this morning I kept my morning routine except, I slept until 7:30 am which was a little extra because the drive wore me out. I am working on a project that he will be assisting me on and I am super excited and super scared!

So what I can control is my morning routine, keeping it as close to what it has always been, this feels normal. Working on this project feels good, so I will wrap myself in it as much as possible. Adding new things to the routine, Tuesday, I went on two walks and today we will get out for walks , take pictures and make the most of what we can. Love on my friends from a distance. Enjoy this much needed change that I have the opportunity to explore. Take extra precautions to up the immune system, vitamins, eating three squares, healthy stuff!

We have an opportunity to reconnect with Mother Earth, our friends that have been distanced, to create beauty! Let’s make the most of these days love!

Much Love 💜 Much Life
