How are you doing during this crazy, generation defining time? As for me, I still work full time. My husband and I own a retail, brick and mortar travel agency. This has been my career for more than half of my life. We have built our company through so many challenges. We were here when all of the planes were grounded after 9/11. We have been here through various issues made up by the media. The media lives to create fear in people. They’re pretty good at it.
Nothing could possibly have prepared us for what’s happening now. We have canceled every trip that was supposed to have traveled starting several weeks ago and continuing so far for two more months. Our company supports 15 families. Our employees are the primary breadwinners of their families. And now there is no revenue for at least three months, and it will likely be much longer than that in coming back.
Clearly, this is a very stressful time. But do you know what is saving my life right now? My gardens, my chickens and my bees.
Guess what is happening in the garden, in the pasture and in the bee yard? The same normal things that you would expect to see in late Marchin Texas.
The bees are making baby bees. The chickens are laying eggs. The garden is coming to life. The sun comes up, the sun goes down, the world keeps spinning.
So, I’ll keep starting seeds. I’ll keep building new chicken coops. I’ll still marvel at the bees and mostly try to stay out of their way.
What’s keeping you sane right now? Tell me in the comments.
