What We Took for Granted Before the Coronavirus

Dear Reader,

How are you?

I’ve been working from home for my day job for a little more than a week. Working from home has its advantages, but I miss the office. Getting up before dawn and taking the train to work is not easy. But if I am to be honest, I would go back to commuting tomorrow if we were told that life will be back to normal.

I realized today the things we take for granted. It’s not just the big things, like getting together with friends or going on vacation in another country. It’s the little things. It’s the ability to go out for dinner because you don’t want to cook or see a movie at a theater instead of streaming it from one of the various streaming services.

Whenever this ends and we return to a version of normalcy (whatever that is), I hope that we all will have an appreciation for what we have instead of routinely kvetching about everyday problems.

Sometimes it takes a shakeup to remind us to count our blessings. If nothing else, this virus is a shakeup.

Loves and kisses,


P.S. Hit me me up on Twitter at Writergurlny if you need to talk. We are all in this together.
