Sticky

Welcome to a strange new term. There are a couple of things to keep in mind.  First, please take care of yourselves.  While I know there is a lot of uncertainty, please follow all of the tips from the HEALTH PROFESSIONALS.  Other people might have their hearts in the right place, but they aren't the true experts.  

 I understand many of you might be helping out with childcare, helping family members or the elderly and finding your days filled with responsibility that you hadn't anticipated....be your best self at this point.  Utilize this time as an opportunity to make sure each day includes something that helps you grow in four ways: spiritually (maybe reading the Bible or extra time in prayer), Intellectually (reading, journalling, finding a new podcast, etc.), physically (make sure an exercise, eat healthy/drink water) and emotionally (write a letter to an elderly relative, send a positive text or snap to a family member or friend, enjoy a conversation with a family member or watch an amazing movie from the '80s)....I stole these four categories from Matthew Kelly's suggestions for how to be the best version of yourself. I've always wished to accomplish all four each day, but said there wasn't always enough time....maybe now is the time.  My own advice would be to AVOID wasting time comparing how you spend your days with how others are spending theirs-live your own life: play that board game, read that book, create March Madness Bracket that involves a to-do for each bracket, or whatever else helps you and your family during this unique time.  The Bible has 365 references about not worrying-that's almost one for each day in 2020 (Leap Year!).  Trust God, wash your hands and know that I am thinking about and praying for each and every one of you during this time.  

You all have my email.  Please feel free to reach out.  Please know that I will respond as quickly as I can, but it may take up to 24 hours.  
My best piece of advice for the next few weeks is: Make YOURSELF proud of how you spend your time.
