COVID-19 is currently the number one topic. It’s a scary time for everyone which also means there are disappointing times as well and lots of sacrifice being made. Trust me, I’m ready to return to normalcy.
I’ve been on conference calls with the Mississippi COVID-19 Outpatient Clinic Operations Committee Task Force working with the Mississippi Department of Health. It’s just overwhelming. I just wish everyone would do their part so we can “flatten the curve” so to speak.
Interestingly, I have been able to “quarantine” myself at home and never leave the house while board studying for the Step exams. However, there’s something that makes one feel anxious when you’re being told to stay at home and not leave the house. I find the psychology behind it all very fascinating.
Currently, my days involve sharing meals with my family, remote work on my computer, exercising outside, and relaxing in the evenings. I find myself on social media way more, but I also find that I look for ways to disconnect way more as well. If I can occupy my mind by getting things done at the house, I much prefer it to being on the computer actually. It reminds me of simpler days growing up. I keep busy because that’s just who I am. There’s always something to do whether it’s organizing my closet or writing blog posts or remote work for my contracted jobs.
I stay motivated because I know I want to do everything possible to protect the ones I love, especially my parents. I am optimistic because there is light at the end of the tunnel, and no matter what, I truly believe that everything works out the way it’s supposed to in the end. Please stay safe, be well, and stay at home!
