Four months into the pandemic and I have had enough. We are just now seeing it peak here in Texas and I am so over it. I feel like there is this wet blanket hanging over all of us. It is depressing us in ways that we are unaware of and, making it worse, there is no end in sight. It is clouding our future plans and hampering decision making. The negative impact on our outlook and mental health is something we have never dealt with before. Sure, we are putting one foot in front of the other and moving forward. We are adapting and surviving. But, I feel like it is just hanging over us and weighing on us more than we know.
Early in the pandemic one MMM was about the fact that it is okay to not be okay. As the pandemic drags on and hangs over us, we need to be reminded of that. There is a reason we may not feel motivated. There are days we will be in a funk. Until the COVID-19 wet blanket is gone we will not feel totally normal.
We must peek out from under the blanket and take positive steps. Don’t be suffocated by the circumstances. We don’t know when, but there will be an end to this, and we will get there!
