It’s been precisely one full yr that I’ve been staying dwelling due to the 2020 pandemic. I’ll always remember the day since I wakened on March 1st with a chilly after a enjoyable weekend with associates. Clearly a little bit an excessive amount of enjoyable, therefore the stunning chilly I caught. But, I keep in mind waking up with a bizarre scratchy throat and cough (not COVID) whereas the subject of the virus lastly hit my morning TV present as a information story. To be trustworthy, I felt bizarre heading to the grocery retailer with a chilly with all this unknown chatter. So I made a decision to remain dwelling that week and do grocery supply. Something I NEVER do. And the next week, it was recreation over right here in Georgia.

One full yr later…

It actually doesn’t even really feel prefer it’s been a yr. It nonetheless seems like April to me. Anyone else? It’s wild to assume {that a} full yr has passed by and all on the similar time it seems like perhaps a month. Time used to fly by. And now, we’re simply stagnant. There are moments when it seems like this has really been the longest yr ever. But I additionally really feel prefer it’s been just some weeks. So a lot has occurred, but nothing has modified both. Maybe that’s why issues really feel a lot at a standstill.

While we’re coming as much as that yr mark for the complete nation, I simply need to ask you all, how are you doing?

This previous yr has been so bizarre, loopy, unprecedented. Not even only for coping with a as soon as in 100 yr pandemic, however every thing else in between. The racial divide, the political panorama, insane snowstorms, hurricanes and wildfires. The checklist is endless it seems like. But we’re surviving, aren’t we? We’re nonetheless right here.

I hope I’m not alone in that some days I really feel nice. I stand up, get my exercise in, really feel motivated to work and be productive. And I’m really in a superb temper. Then there are days that simply suck. For no obvious motive aside from we’re surviving a pandemic. It’s simply a whole lot of ups and downs. And nonetheless a whole lot of unknowns.

With vaccines formally rolling out all over the place, the sunshine on the finish of the tunnel undoubtedly feels a lot brighter now than it did many months in the past. It’s a superb feeling. But then there’s the second after I sit and consider what we’ve all been enduring and the way we’ll come out of this on the opposite facet. How is that this expertise affecting our friendships and relationships? How can we correctly grieve the losses we’ve had this final yr. Between the over 500,000 who’ve handed from COVID, to these we’ve misplaced in our households however couldn’t correctly grieve their passing. This yr has been nothing in need of firsts.

Have we even actually processed what’s occurring or will it hit us when it’s throughout? All of that’s going to turn into a actuality quickly.
