Lessons Learned from Quarantine
Last week I shared with you a little bit about where I’m at with all of this…
Could you relate with the “COVID good enough” idea?
So today, I wanted to share the other side of my COVID/ Life in 2020 experience: The lessons I’ve gleaned from social distancing and related events.
My TOP TEN Lessons Learned from Social Distancing & COVID Pandemic
❏ Priority of personal safety precautions.
❏ By protecting ourselves we can protect others.
❏ Importance of celebrating small wins.
❏ Normality is a mind game ( I also learned that normalacy and normality can be used inter-changeably, English is so weird!).
❏ Expectations are a trap! (for Star Wars fans, add Admiral Ackbar’s voice)
❏ There is always enough space to offer compassion.
❏ Sharing the same community circumstances does not mean we face the same personal challenges.
❏ Now is always the best time to selflessly care for others.
❏ Crisis does not justify cruelty or isms of any form (to self or others!).
❏ Change is inevitable; the power of choice is immutable, even if all we can choose is our attitude. Reframe from Love!
What have you learned? I’d love to expand my list!
