Can you have a good day

Leave a comment

Of course, you can have a good day. If you’re lucky, you can still find positive things in a day. For instance, I don’t look at this hibernation as a bad thing now. I’m trying to find things that I haven’t had a chance to get to at home. I hope to read a book. I hope to do some carvings. Maybe work on my studio photography. Take a walk with my better half. Work in the yard and on the home.

But I also understand there are many that like me live paycheck to paycheck. I’m fortunate that I can work from home so far. Who knows what companies and government agencies will be forced to do in the coming weeks and months though. So uncertainty is our new bedfellow. Will the stores continue to have enough food for all of us. Will they even be open. Which one of the people you pass is sick? You can see it in people’s faces now.

I already know a few people in huge financial trouble. Many more will be joining them. Hell, I might fall into that someday myself. I just hope we can overcome this new bug and work hard to restore all the wonderful things we were taking for granted. It’s just going to take time and I know we have some impatient people.

But as I’ve learned over the last decade. When each day you have a health issue hanging over your head, just make the best of each day. Find something to enjoy and smile about. Find something to love. Find someone who inspires you. Find many things to laugh about. Find it within yourself to help someone else.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I don’t even want to look at my 401k.
  • The phrase too little too late leaps to mind recently.
  • I made some prints of my granddaughter today to make me feel good and my daughter when I give them to her.
  • Spend as much time as you can to make the elderly feel secure and relaxed.
  • Governor Hogan impresses me more and more each day.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
