I’ve been in training for Coronavirus my entire life!
I lived in a constant state of fear, uncertainty and the possibility of hurt/harm and danger. As an abused child and living with a parent with mental illness, my entire childhood was full of uncertainty, insecurity, anger, fear and the possibility of hurt, harm and danger. Heck, in several decades I have survived depression, mental and emotional abuse, abandonment, poverty, racism, discrimination, suicidal thoughts, a near-fatal car accident, debilitating illness, chronic pain …the list goes on and on.
Shoot, at least there are precautions I can take to stay safe and avoid the Coronavirus. There was very little I could do in most of the things I experienced above.
Yes, life has a way of humbling us all if we live long enough. The truth is that most of us have been through worse and have learned that this too shall pass. Life can change in an instant and, despite your best efforts and plans, the unexpected happens to us all. Count your blessings, relax your mind especially in the valley and always keep your eyes to the sky. The best is yet to come although sometimes you must go through hell to get there.
You were born for greater. Never forget that or allow circumstances to talk you out of it.
