Isn’t it a wake-up call when things don’t go to plan?
I had originally planned all of my March blog posts in February with How to Rock Your Unemployment Journey and Post-Grad Money Lessons to be scheduled for the last two weeks.
I’ll admit, as COVID-19 became bigger and bigger, I was selfishly irked at the fact that I’d have to rework my posts. And if that wasn’t enough, my blog was down on my end, meaning I had no way to access, change, or even write an article for Wednesday (my normal posting day).
But as all of this was going on, I realized I no control over the situation… and that was okay. Instead of focusing on something relatively small in the grand scheme on things, I spent my days’ isolation prepping and getting the apartment in order; preparing to hunker down for however long my family and I need to.
As I’ve spent the last couple of days at home (four to be exact), I know that social distancing can be difficult for some, along with the fear COVID-19 brings, so I thought I’d share 10 quotes that spread positivity and hope in this uncertain and scary time.
