These are some challenging times. In fact the most challenging times for over 100yrs according to many reports and for many of us our whole lives have been placed on hold. But, if there is one thing to take from all of this is that we are ALL dealing with the same thing. The damn near the whole world is in lockdown, admittedly our indecisive politicians don’t help ie “…It’s just a flu…” “…we have it under control…” If this is what is known as ‘under control’ then God help us all.
“Am I on my own feeling like this?” No, you most certainly are not, this is out of control EVERYWHERE.
There are some pluses, there are heaps of online opportunities. Online courses are one. You know how to use a computer. Due to Covid there are a lot of older people with no knowledge of computers now finding they need it to communicate with family. You can assist by passing your knowledge on to others.
Danielle, you have shown you have the strength to push on through HUGE challenges put up in front of you and this is just another challenge. We have needed to be flexible and resilient to push forward in our journey, so you’ve shown you have the skills. This is another one of those challenges and sure we don’t know where this challenge will lead, but let’s face it, we didn’t know where the challenge of our TBI’s would lead either and yet, here we are. We can get through this.
As for motivation, hmmm. ‘Motivation’ is related to movement and at the moment the governments restricting ALL movement for everyone. That is outside of your control, it’s outside of everybody’s control. We can only be responsible for what we have control of ourselves and in this COVID situation we have no control what so ever. But we are ALL in this together.
I find if I can keep my mind occupied I can calm things down to manageable. If I let my mind go… …OHHH HELL. What a mess?
