Yes, things continue to change all around us. Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you think there’s no way out? I bet you have. We’ve all been there. As I think back to the early days of COVID-19, we all had different perceptions, viewpoints, ideas, etc. It’s interesting that now about six months later, I’m sitting in the DFW airport. I’m travelling today. Yeah, it’s still pretty quiet, but there’s a lot of people out making it happen.
Social distancing, mask wearing, extra hand washing, protection, everything like that is in full effect. It’s interesting how we adapt to the environment around us and situations we find ourselves in. As humans, we’ve learned to adapt regardless the circumstances. We find a way to make it happen. We just do it, even when it may look tough.
Think back to when you were a kid, maybe in the third or fourth grade and you had a test coming up. You probably thought that the world the world was going to end. It was so traumatic, yet you made it through. Then, later in life, you’ve probably found yourself in different obstacles. I know I’ve had my share of hard things in my life, but you know what? The sun still comes up in the morning. Every day is a new day. I’m looking outside right now at the sun – yes, it did come up this morning.
As human beings, we find a way to adapt. We always do. It’s important to remain strong. Maintain your faith and stay focused. Believe you can and you will. Surround yourself with other people like you to help encourage you and keep you on the right track.
So, I stand here in the DFW airport, in a very quiet, isolated part of the building. They require masks here of course, but I’m not wearing one since I’m highly secluded from everyone. As soon as I get done with this video, though I will put my mask back on as I adapt to the rules of the environment currently in place around us. That is how we will all get through this. We will make it through COVID-19. I know there are just a couple of generations ahead of us that got through the Spanish flu – 1918 and 1920. They got through it.
There have been many other crises that we’ve endured. I am optimistic and confident that we make it through this one as well. Join me in looking for ways to adapt and build and go forward.
