We are not alone. Especially in the Big Apple.
“Let gratitude be at the core of everything I do”. It jolted me as it reminded me to come back out of my shell, again, at least this once.
I have been vigilant of the amount of news/social media I am taking in whilest “social distancing” aka “self-prescribed-quarantine”.
I am not alone. I am blessed to be living with my dad and my little sister right now at this very special time of our lives.
We are okay.
We live almost 7 miles from Rockefeller Center. Namely, we live 30 minutes walking distance from Elmhurst Hospital - one of the most severely impacted hospital in Queens, NYC.
I need to keep abreast of the news for career decisions. Yet, all I really want to do is to have a real hermit life right at this moment. I may be depressed or scared or shellshocked about all of this “COVID-19 stuff” and the chaos it’s eliciting, just as many. But, what I really want to do is to be in silence and pray a lot for the world and all those (especially medical personnels).
We are doing our parts by staying home with well stocked supplies. We are distancing within the house.
I do 45% of the house chores (cook 65% of the meals) so my dad can focus on his work (thank you Port Authority for remote working) and my sister can continue to blossom as the incredible first grade teacher she is (of NYC!!!). With the time I have on hand, I juggle my businesses, meditate, cry over all sorts of videos, pace/walk/stretch in the house, and practice what I preach.
