This may sound like a cliché, but, when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
If you know how to read between the lines, you know that it is very important that you don't get your knickers in a twist. Much of what we've all had to deal with recently is a real pain in the butt. And we all really need to count our blessings more than ever before
All of us would like to be without a care in the world. I know that my emotions over time have ranged somewhere between being scared out of my wits and frightened to death over the pandemic and everything it brought with it. The last 18 plus months has certainly been a tough row to hoe, and seems like it has lasted an eternity. Like many other things we've all experienced however, we know that when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
We've learned how to work from home, even if we've often lost track of time because we got thrown out of our normal routines and had a commute from the bedroom to the kitchen, instead of jumping in our cars. We had to go back to the drawing board to get our work done when our offices closed. Only time will tell what the new normal will look like for our work lives, whether we will go back full-time, not go back at all, or create some kind of hybrid work life.
Every cloud has a silver lining however, and many wonderful advances will always come from difficult times. I myself have had a renewed effort in working out and feel fit as a fiddle, even though my kids look at me as if I'm as old as the hills. Oh well, it is what it is when it comes to that.
In many ways, there has also been an improved sense of an all for one, and one for all attitude, especially as we came to understand that we are all in this together. We had our collective backs against the wall, and in so many important ways have come through with flying colors.
As luck would have it, it's probably a blessing in disguise that I'll wrap these thoughts up now, just in the nick of time. After all, all good things must come to an end. If you thought this post was the best thing since sliced bread…all's well that ends well. And if this post made you feel down in the dumps…I guess for you, all that glitters isn't gold. After all, either way, this too shall pass.
Happy National Cliché Day!
