Being frustrated, asking questions of “why is this happening to me,” and screaming at the top of our lungs when no one is listening is so damn easy. Emotional content is a vital sign of a healthy mind, and if we stomp our feet, it just detriments our minds if we continue to ask “why,” we will continue to be frustrated.
We should not waste our time right now being frustrated because it just adds fuel to our frustration during this COVID-19 fiasco. We need to channel it into positive energy, keep doing our part to stay and keep others safe. Most importantly, figure out new ways to keep our morale high in such low times.
If we are proactive, the reactive will be positive. The secret to getting through this is to find some way to release a positive force to find new ways to create a good attitude.
Adding stress by pouting about our circumstances of quarantine will lower our immune systems. Stay positive because when the glass is half full, you can put lemonade powder and ice in it, making a better-tasting full glass of refreshingness.
My fiance and I have put our energy into cooking, finding faith, DIY projects, and trying to find fun things to do. The number one thing we are doing is working out in front of our TV, doing barre classes, and yoga. We plan to do even more things like jigsaw puzzles and to get to other things that we have been putting off.
We love to make dry rub wings, watch the Vikings, and take football naps. It isn’t even football season. It may sound crazy, but we love doing those things, and we watched Randy Moss’ famous Thanksgiving Day game from 1998, which I vaguely remember as a kindergartener. But, recreating NFL Sunday’s was a blast, keeping our spirits high.
My fiance and I are going to create a dinner and movie night, where we get dressed up nice and order take out. We will light candles and drink beer from pint glasses, overall creating a fancy date night all from the comfort of our own home.
This is a time to use our imagination, making the best of what we have.
If we can go through life with a positive attitude, perseverance, and fairly good problem solving towards our salvation, then the greater good will come.
In times like this, we need to believe the greater good will come. But, it only comes with a positive attitude, as a paralyzed athlete once said, “The greatest disability in life is a bad attitude.”
Remember, when you point your finger at the moon, don’t focus on the finger. You will miss the beauty of what is the “great beyond.” Yes, I just totally ripped off Bruce Lee. This is why emotional content is the key to our survival right now.
The best is yet to come. We have to ride out this wave of terror, and if we’re going to do this, let’s do it smiling.
