20 Things I Have Learned In Quarantine

Moving into the 4th week of a 2 week quarantine and I have a few things to say:

1) I still have all 4 members of my family, safe and sound (including Timon);

2) Texting my friends and family keeps me sane and smiling;

3) I have a fantastic job that I genuinely love that can be done from my home;

4) Society depends on us all working together, because we are all dependent on each other;

5) Nationalist policies will never solve a global pandemic;

6) Dr. Bonnie Henry is the most calming person in the world, even when she is sharing bad news;

7) I love the 7 pm honking and cheering, even though I live nowhere near a hospital, for the purpose of gratitude, and for the fortification of community;

8) I don’t really like leaving my house anyway, so staying in it 24/7 isn’t that big of a deal;

9) Glennon Doyle’s book Untamed is so good that it can be read in one day;

10) Things that stress me out, like baking, is soothing for other people;

11) My kids can want to kill each other one minute, and curl up and read together the next;

12) Chest tightness can be caused by anxiety AND be anxiety causing;

13) Skype is one of the greatest inventions in the world;

14) I stand by my belief that vaccines save lives and do not want to live in a world with less than 50% herd immunity;

15) Less pollution is taking the frizz from my hair;

16) We can heal the planet and ourselves by all working together;

17) This pandemic is being faced by everyone from janitors to billionaires, and cannot be faced by only one group our another;

18) We need each other, we need to support each other, we need to care about each other;

19) Small business owners are struggling, and need us to support them;

And finally 20) there is no wrong way to handle this pandemic, other than to disregard the rules, orders, and scientists.
