My blog this week is going to be short. Everything about the year 2020 feels like it came out of a Philip K. Dick sci-fi dystopian novel. So much has happened from a health, political and sensory perspective, it is hard to reflect on the events of this past year with an objective mind. Lockdowns are still active in many states, tens of millions of American citizens have been negatively impacted financially by this virus and governmental actions, while we face a country and world that is changing so rapidly from an economic and political perspective that it is difficult to perceive where all these changes are going to take our country. In difficult and chaotic times like this, it is always good to simplify and focus on the important things in your life. One of the better articles that tries to frame a positive mindset regarding this virus is from the Financial Times of India. Nine steps to improve your life in a world that is no longer recognizable to most individuals on this planet. If the lockdowns have you down, I have also found that taking a 1 to 2 mile hike around my neighborhood and enjoying the outdoors is a fantastic way to bring some much needed clarity.
I hope everyone enjoys the Holiday season. Remember to be responsible and most importantly, be a free thinker and do your research before making decisions. I have been to six states since the COVID-19 lockdown (California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana) and have not been afraid of interstate travel because I take responsibility for my actions. If you protect yourself, there is no reason to live in fear of COVID-19. Until next time and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
