"What you think you become. What you feel you attract.
What you imagine you create."
In June we were asked to write a post about how we were dealing with the COVID-19 Pandemic. My entry was titled:
Rising Above: Minding My P's & Q's and a Z
This month's challenge To Think Is To Create focuses on sharing what we've done since June to deal with the on-going realities of COVID-19 life. So, this is a sequel of sorts to the June post.
If there is one thing I do plenty of it is thinking. Whether I want to or not, my brain never seems to shut off. Even when I'm sleeping, I am a prolific dreamer.
Since June, I have changed some of the things I WAS doing, which were a reaction to the early stages of the Pandemic. I no longer have my groceries or take-out food delivered but I do like knowing I could if I want to. I have started getting out more and enjoying the company of a select group of people I know are being cautious with who they come into contact with.
What I haven't changed is keeping a positive attitude and planning for the future.
My golf/travel app is still in development. As with most things, it is taking more time than expected. Much of that is because it has morphed into something much more comprehensive (and exciting) than the original plan.
I have taken on the task of being a moderator / mentor in a widow / widower group on Facebook. I've been on this journey as a widow for 9 1/2 years and have more than a little bit of insight to share with those struggling in the early stages. Everyone's journey is unique but there are also common denominators. That actually takes quite a bit of time and I've found it very rewarding.
My elderly sister-in-law had another stroke in August so I've been dealing with that as her emergency contact and POA / AIF. She's coming along but still requiring a lot of care. I am not doing the caregiving but I do oversee it.
I try to spend time here in The Rain. I haven't done as much of that as I'd like but I do enjoy keeping my fingers in the pie, so to speak. I have managed to attend almost all of the weekly Zoom meetings so that's been fun.
I was able to play quite a bit of golf this summer and fall. The weather has turned cold here now so that's probably over until I head toward Arizona and California sometime this winter. I'm looking forward to seeing my AR buddies on that trip. Last year I was able to meet up with John Boles, Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! , Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS, Broker, Instructor , Jan Green , Brian England , Steffy Hristova , and Myrl Jeffcoat during my travels south. I hope to see them all again and, perhaps, a few more.
What it has come down to is doing the responsible things to reduce my chance of getting sick yet carrying on with life in a meaningful way.
Who knew retirement would be so Spooktacular!
