And here we go. May 1st. The restrictions on stay at home are being eased. You have already made a decision on whether you should resume your pre Covid-19 activities. First, I would suggest you think about how difficult was it for you to deal with the restrictions? Then ask yourself if it was difficult, why? How did you personally benefit from the restrictions?
Did your behavior change during this Covid-19 outbreak? Was that change a positive change in your behavior?
Unless you were already leading the life of a Saint, we all had the opportunity to initiate positive change during this Covid outbreak. For those who lost jobs, you had a sudden change forced upon you. Your opportunity to change for the positive was limited. You were forced to find a way to continue the lifestyle you had established. You may have been forced to determine where is your next meal coming from?
Each of us know how we benefited and how we may have suffered from this Covid outbreak. One thing is certain. We have been prepared for the next outbreak.
General global lessons learned. The government wasn't prepared. It was a medical 911 event. One day we are told "there is no need to wear a mask." A month later we are told, "You should wear a mask in public". Based on that statement alone, I will never fully trust the government to put out medical information that can be trusted.
So what do you do now? Prepare for the next wave. You know what products you should have in your home by now. You know what activities that you really did not miss during the Covid outbreak. If it wasn't essential consider not going back to those activities. If you were able to save money, you know how you did so.
If you improved in a major way, stay the course. If you found yourself spiritually, do not let the temptations and offerings of the world take you off course. Remember, you cannot see the virus. It is still out there and it is possible for you to still be infected. Continue those safe sanitary practices.
