It’s amazing how quickly things have returned to normal. It’s as if the past never occurred. What does that tell us?
We are coming out of the pandemic now. Well, we’re still in a pandemic, but clearly here in the United States, it’s getting under control. Stores are reopening, mask requirements are “coming off” in a number of states.
I find it interesting how quickly things return to normal. Traffic’s building on the highway, stores are getting busy.
I’m sitting here in a Target parking lot early in the morning, and I’m kind of amazed at how busy it is already at 6:45 a.m.
In the midst of the pandemic, we thought things would never, ever return to normal, but they did.
Now Is Not Forever
It’s a lesson that I have to learn over and over again. It’s taught me to never think that my current circumstances are going to be forever. It’s amazing how things change. Just when you think it’s nearly impossible, they do.
So many times we stress out regarding a situation because we see our reality remain stagnant. And then boom, it changes. Sometimes overnight, sometimes it takes months.
Surely, there are always lessons we learn from it. Great learning opportunities have come out of the pandemic. For example, we’ve all become more efficient. We’ve all learned how to use time more effectively.
How We Move Forward
This tells us quite a few things. When you find yourself in the middle of a situation that you don’t see a way out–think about 2020 and how we didn’t think we’d come out, but we did it. Admittedly, 2021 began similarly to the way 2020 was, but here we are, months down the road, and things are changing.
Never accept things for what they are. Of course, sometimes it’s not in your control, I get that. But by just waiting and being patient, fix your eyes a little further down the road. You might be pleasantly surprised by a new horizon.
