Here We Go Again

On our own.

I don’t know about you, but isolation sucks. While we are amidst the covid-19 pandemic, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of light at the end of the tunnel.

Yes, here we go again. Wave two is on its way.

So, how do we find hope in this horrible time? The answer is simple, we don’t take this time for granted.

As a teacher, teaching remotely, I frequently want to throw myself off a bridge. I wish that was an exaggeration. For many, we are working from home and our work has taken over our home. I can’t escape it, I can’t leave it behind me, I cannot pretend it isn’t there. That laptop, cell phone, and never ending todo list is always in sight.


While we may not be commuting, do not add that used time as another stressor. Just because the world has granted us more time, that does not mean your mental capacity expanded.

For many a commute is a way to decompress after a trying day. Find your new “commute” that may be something as mindful as meditation, or journaling. Hey, maybe try blogging but whatever you outlet is dedicate that “commute” to you.

How do you spend your “commute time” positive or negative, let’s hear it!
