We are still in the thick of dealing with the coronavirus, and we all want to get back to some semblance of normalcy. Unfortunately, some people have just gotten tired of trying. There seems to be light at the end of the tunnel, but only if we all do the work.
One concept that I learned about and have really embraced is that in order to deal with my disability, I must weave my challenges into whatever I want to do. When I want to do anything in my life, I must plan around my challenges. I must do this in everything in my life. I had to weave in my challenges when I went to college, when I started a family, even when I went to out on the town. It’s frustrating. It’s not fair. But, it’s necessary.
The big ole wrench called the coronavirus has been thrown in all of our lives. For at least the next few months we must live life assuming that this virus is going to alter our lives. It might be personally or professionally, but one thing is definite. This virus is going to alter some aspect of your life.
When faced with a challenge, especially a challenge on this scale, and this deadly oftentimes, we have to put our emotions, our desires, and our plans on hold. We have to accept that we have to deal with the challenge for the time being while also knowing that one day it too shall pass. The times when I accepted and weaved my challenges into my endeavors, I had more success.
Unlike my disability this is a temporary sacrifice. If we all face this challenge, make the necessary sacrifices, and stay the course until the end, we will see success.
DO THE WORK.
