With all the chaos happening in our society simultaneously, where do we go from here? I can tell you many people are afraid. This fear is very understandable because we are entering into uncharted territories as a country. There isn't one solid answer I could give you to solve all your problems in one swing. I can tell you what has helped me and maybe it can help you too. To curve this fear you should consider creating a plan. This will at least give you a general direction and calm the anxiety you may have had during these last 5 to 7 months.

I can remember sitting down during the world wide mandatory quarantine trying to figure out what was really happening. It seemed my universe was diminished to a tiny snow globe. I found myself slipping into an unhealthy sadness. Mind you, I had just lost my father, about eight months earlier I lost my mother. Yep, a double whammy! At this moment, I knew it was time to be rational, take a deep breath and start thinking.

First, I took time to think about all the resources at my finger tips. These resources ranged from financial capital, business opportunities, equipment, and tools. I had to lay it all out on the table so I could get a great real visual representation of what I was working with. I had to ask myself the question, was thing really as bleak for me as it appear to be in my mind. Once I laid everything out and had a clearer picture. I discovered things weren't as bad as they appeared personally. I quickly started to formulate an action plan.

Second, I had to think about potential job loss, home security, and personal safety. I had to repeat that infamous phase I would alway repeat to myself every so often when society was "normal". "If I only had more time I could ..." Well Ron, you have all the time in the world now, so what are you going to do with it.
