Creating a plan as the world begins to open up.

As the number of cases of COVID-19 starts to level off, our world will begin to slowly re-open. For many, this is a huge relief, as it offers the opportunity to come in contact with real people in real-time rather than a video in which your friend or family member’s voice, words, and facial expressions that are not in sync. It provides a glimpse of the normality of our lives as we knew them pre-pandemic.
Quarantine has been this funny time where, although we were forced to shut down, we were also forced to slow down our life’s rat race that was leading to nowhere and fast. For some, quarantine has given us a chance to connect with our families, to play board games, to take walks and bike rides. It has given us time to declutter or finally get to work on that project or projects in our home. It has given us a chance to find books again. A chance to cook and find our love of creating meals for our families. A chance to re-connect via phone or video with family and friends because life was just “too busy.”
