The Logical Heart Knows Best

This week we got lots of healthy groceries to keep our immune systems up. I also managed to snag some cold medicine because I still have some lingering congestion from the cold I had/have and just in case we need it because of coronavirus. I forgot to get a thermometer though, next week if there are any left 🙂 The cold medicine shelf was mostly empty as well as the tissue/bunghole, I mean TP aisles were sparse 🙂

I ate lots of fresh veggies today and have been stinking up the joint with whoever smelt it dealt it, heh 🙂 I used too much garlic and had to resort to a few Tums, omg. TMI 😀

Really though, it’s kinda scary when you read what other countries have been through, especially the medical staff. I am so relieved that I’m not working in hospitals and nursing homes even more now. My heart couldn’t take it.

All I’ve gotta worry about now is people grabbing food with their hands and sniffing it which is not hygienic, yet they do it, lol. Even though there’s a sign that says, please use tongs 🙂 I expect for the time being we may not serve those items as a precaution, to prevent the spread of germs. It is better to be cautious, proactive and prepared.

The more we prevent the spread, the fewer people will die. It makes sense to me. No brainer. It’s not panicking, it’s not politicizing, it’s not a hoax, it’s common sense and practical to want to save lives.

I will be staying close to home and I always wash my hands, use hand sanitizer, and wear gloves all the time at work.

Hopefully, we will be bouncing back from this soon and will be more prepared for the next go ’round. Maybe the powers that be will take the health of the planet/humanity more seriously?

I try to stay positive, hopeful, trusting and forgiving, but sometimes it’s hard not to get frustrated and discouraged. The lack of caring, compassion, and empathy is disturbing. My heart protests.

Yet I can’t be productive if I’m in the grips of despair, so I take a deep inhale and muster up all the love from within and tell myself to focus on what I can do and let the rest go.

We do what we can and what we must, we keep going, we keep loving 🙂 We’re all in this together ?
