Growing up, I was told to make do with what I had instead of complaining about what I didn’t. In a time like this, people are concerned, cautious, and hopeful. More and more, we are learning to appreciate things we do not have with us at the moment whether that may be a family member, a job, a lost sports season, or a simple object like the flowers at one’s work desk.
Rather than looking at all the negative aspects of the pandemic that are constantly on the news, circling social media, and lingering in our minds, we can indefinitely observe the positive sides to this crisis: More time at home, self-growth, learning to be resilient, etc. While separated, we can find our own freedoms while still communicating with each other and staying safe. Raw and bland, the picture describes continuing reality separated by the bold COVID 19 virus.
