So, based on the advice from quite a number of experts in the scientific field, it looks like Covid-19 is going be in our lives for quite sometime. Though vaccines are available to some among us. Dr. Fauci and others stated that we will be required to wear masks at least up until 2021 and maybe beyond.
All these updates make you want to go stir-crazy; especially if you have children and older adults who depend on you. Many staple industries have gone sideways and some have been permanently closed. We’re tired of this interruption in our lives, financially, socially and otherwise.
The fact is, we’ve to face reality. When this pandemic is over, which it will at some point, there is going to be a new normalcy within our midst. Employment that previously existed in certain sectors will be obsolete. The brick and mortar way for work and school will be phased out completely or partially done virtually.
With all this free time on our hands, perhaps, this is the perfect time to take a hard and honest look and figure out our future moves. After all this. life will go on; but in a different way. And, the thing is, you don’t wish to be caught off-guard. You want to be prepared for the “New Normal” because it’s coming.
This is the time to reinvent our selves. Maybe, it is time to use up your passion/s and allow same to wield in some extra money. For instance. if you have a good speaking voice, perhaps, you could start a podcast or your own YouTube channel. If you’re passionate about cooking or any other skill. this is the way to reborn and let the world know about your talents.
The beauty about all this, is that the world is at your figure tips. Thanks to the Internet, we all can get our “voices” heard. Knowledge is key. Therefore, this is the season to learn a new skill via online schools or free through YouTube. Maybe, you always wanted to learn another language, Duolingo is one clink away. You would be amazed at what you could accomplish just by putting yourself out there.
Of course, at first, you’ll be a little intimidated. But with perseverance, you can reinvent yourself and be part of the “New Normal”. Step by step; one day at a time. We’ve been gifted with time. Time is on our hands. This is the perfect season to be who you wish to be. Though we have lost tremendously, we can gain.
Continue to stay safe. my friends. There’s a lighthouse ahead.
