As many of you, I have been trying to find good use of my time while sitting in my house and trying to adjust my priorities. A couple of things that I have realized are; how I will never take for granted a power of a hug, the ability to gather with friends and family, and the many little things the we do without even thinking, like going to a restaurant for dinner or worshiping together. A few things that haven’t changed are my ability to love, dream, to hope in the future, to see the goodness in mankind and to understand the strength of my faith.
I don’t think normal will ever be the same and maybe it shouldn’t be. Our new normal is going to be more selective on what is really important. We may think our ability to provide an income through our jobs and careers as more of a benefit rather than a burden. Our teachers, the medical professionals, the truck driver and the grocery workers all those essential workers that where always just there, will no longer be invisible but be appreciated. Our family and friends that we were kept apart from will now be valued as a priority in our life.
Travel that we took for granted will now be seen as treasured. The ability to hop on a plane or cruise ship, to experience new cultures and new destinations will mean so much more. Our safety will become paramount and for the near future we may want more private journeys and to avoid the masses and find more unique destinations. Our budget for travel, because of the economy restart, may become tighter for a while so we may have to plan more in advance. My passion for travel has not died and I am finding that my clients are feeling the same. Since being isolated they have the itch to follow their wanderlust. I pray that travel will resume in the fall as well as looking forward too many new adventures in 2021.
Let’s all look towards the future, look to new ways to enjoy this beautiful world while keeping ourselves and our families safe. I am hear for questions, suggests and to help you through the challenging next chapter of life after Covid 19.
No one knows what lies ahead so let’s travel the path of uncertainty together.
