I actually had butterflies driving to Safeway this morning at 5:45 hoping they had toilet paper.
We were out before this whole thing started. First of March I'd gone to Costco for Pantry shopping and the shelves were empty. I didn't really think much of it.
Mid March I managed to snag a single ply pack at Sprouts - the last time I went in-store shopping until today.
So today was Senior Day or Auto-Immune Day at the local Supermarket so off I went hoping I was old enough to qualify, but I took my asthma inhaler just in case I needed some kind of proof I was "higher risk". They just smiled and waved me in.
This new reality we are living in is something. I've been learning virtual this and technology that and helping my clients and prospects in every way I can -- at a distance.
I live with my 88 year old mother - I can't take chances, even though she says, "When it's my time, it's my time."
I met with actual buyers yesterday and took every precaution - and of course she did too, she is 7 months pregnant. The interaction was stimulating and got my adrenaline going.
Please know we can have a Zoom meeting, or a Skype, or and Instant Messenger Call or a Hangout. I'm happy to Facetime, or take a video, or just talk on the phone and text.
New reality tells us that we're going to be living a precautionary lifestyle for an indefinite time.
I loved the sunrise I saw this morning rising a bit earlier than the norm.
I love the blossoms I catch as I get more exercise than ever.
I love the catch-up and humanity of reaching out to everyone I know to see how they are doing. We can get so busy with work and life that we lose those small moments. (Photo shared by a client/friend. Pelicans at Arthur Pack Park in Tucson, AZ April 29, 2020)
So, in this new reality, I'm thankful for the small moments.
