These are very strange times we are in right now. I’m doing my best to stay level headed and remind myself (as my grandmother used to always say) that this too shall pass. And I make sure to give lots of extra hugs to Vienna because she’s only 4 and doesn't fully understand what’s happening (even though we’ve done our best to explain), but she misses her teachers and her friends.
We are all in this together, though. There is so much we can do to cultivate positivity which is why I wanted to put this video together because I know that we are wired for negativity—it is human nature. This isn’t always bad. It helps us evaluate situations and make smart decisions, but it doesn’t help when we look at our current situation, or future, as all doom and gloom. Trust me, I’ve been down that road, too.
My worries are about how Walker and I are going to manage our various priorities such as parenting and running our business, and if Vienna doesn’t go back to school in April, add "teacher" to that list. But my worries are not at all unique—I have no doubt you have yours too. So, I’m really trying my best to be positive, but it takes effort.
This is why I wanted to share what Walker and I are doing daily to cultivate positivity because it's never been more important than it is right now.
Here’s my video:
