New Reality

Today is a new day. I woke up and my new reality set it. The world has set its course on a new trajectory…

It still startles me at times to go to the market and wait in line just to be able to walk inside the store. To walk around the aisles and see so many shoppers wearing masks. To be told that I am not allowed to eat my meal in the place I just purchased it, and they still don’t know when they can let me. My favorite little stores aren’t open and I fear they may never have the opportunity to do so again.

This has hit me a little too personally, as well. Out of work and a bit nervous that opportunities won’t present themselves in time. Taking extreme measures in the job market and applying for jobs that will take me to a new reality…

Isolation sets in. Being told to have limited contact with people and so many take that seriously. Ties are cut by others. Doing what can be done to stave off depression. Exercise, writing, being as active as I can with my mind, body, and spirit…

We will never be the way we used to be. We must push on and hope that this will grow us to something better. I want to continue to uncover my joy… I can’t bear to lose it anymore.
