What a year it’s been, well, it’s not even been a year yet, but shall we say the last several months have been different! We have had lockdowns, breakdowns, and meltdowns all because of a virus that has hit us like a ton of bricks. Not only has it affected our physical and mental well-being but also our communities.
It certainly has been a challenging time what with people losing their jobs and businesses having to close, what does the future have in store for us and our children? god only knows, but for now we can only look at the present time and deal with each day as it comes.
Supporting each other is important, reaching out a helping hand to the elderly and the vulnerable is so vital, supporting local shops and small businesses to help keep them going is a must, but have you noticed it takes something to happen before people do this!
When we take life for granted, we don’t always take notice of what is going on around us and we have all done it, but when we are hit with something like this pandemic that is when the helping hand comes out. I’m not saying that before all of this happened people didn’t care I’m just saying that regardless of what is going on in the world we should be there supporting each other anyway.
I know, I can hear some of you saying, “Life’s just not like that” Well, then maybe things need to change, maybe attitudes need to change. We all have choices in life and only you can make those choices. Yes, it may seem like our freedom has been taken away from us right now but It’s no hardship to help someone out who may be struggling, or doing something very simple as sending a text message or Facebook message or even making a phone call just to say “How are you today?”
Whether we see it or not community is important, we all live under the same umbrella so why not support that. When the springs break the umbrella falls but with help it can be repaired. So, go out and support your community, check on your elderly neighbor’s, socially distance of course, buy from your local shops and small businesses. Let others know that you care.
Help your community to thrive and survive.
Sending you all love and blessing
