Dear Diary ..
So … how’s it going?
My goodness … what a ridiculously wild, weird, and terrifying time. I don’t even know where to begin. Shoot … I don’t even know where we are in all this mess since it’s unlike anything pretty much any of us has ever seen.
Here’s what I do know … we WILL get thru this. I’m not entirely sure how and I’m not entirely sure when, but there WILL be an end to it. And here’s what we all need to do … take a deep breath, focus, and try to get thru this TOGETHER.
I know it’s gonna pain a lot of you to hear this, but you’re gonna have to think about people other than yourselves and do things that are for the betterment of everyone. So that means not being the douche canoe who buys 700 rolls of toilet paper or cleans the grocery store out of ground beef because, “I gotta get mine!”
No … I’m sorry Junior … you have to exercise some restraint and let everybody get theirs. There’s plenty of everything to go around … provided we actually let it go around instead of loading it all into our own garage.
Remember after 9/11 when everybody was super nice to each other? Yeah … we’re gonna have to pull that one out of our hats again. And I get it … it’s gonna be hard to do because we are ALL freakin’ out and are afraid of the unknown. And I’d be a liar if I sat here and acted like I wasn’t worried … cuz I am. But I also know that I can’t control all the big picture stuff that’s going on … that’s in God’s hands. All I can do is take care of my day to day, look out for my friends and neighbors, and stay close to my family.
And that’s what we all need to do because … then … and this is the fun part to talk about … when this is all over … oh my God it’s gonna be awesome. You’re gonna have a cookout with your friends. You’re gonna take your kid to a baseball game. You’re gonna eat at your favorite restaurant with the love of your life.
It is gonna be great. And it’s going to be so needed because those places … those businesses … those sports … they’re gonna need our support. It’s going to be a trying time for everyone while we deal with this … but when we get to the otherside … we need to come back with a vengeance and show this world what we’re all about.
I don’t know about you … but I’m super excited for THAT challenge. So I’m gonna do everything I can right now to get us there as quickly as possible. Are we overreacting on things? Maybe. But honestly, I would rather overreact and be relieved that we did instad of the alternative … because that is something that NOBODY wants.
So let’s buckle down … let’s get thru this … and let’s get to the awesome stuff that’s on the other side. Who’s with me?
Till next time Diary … I say … We got this.
