We all feel it. The world is changing and shifting, unlike any other time, even through two World Wars. We are all aware of the many challenges, outlined through the media, so there is no need to repeat the many changes, and their effects, on daily living.
Still, how we respond will determine, whether we end up as victims, or as over-comers. Like everyone else, you are coping with new circumstances, over which you have no control, which make it imperative for you to seek solutions that will enable you to live the best life you can, under these present circumstances.
One important factor is, to revise some common-sense lessons from the past, such as:
+ Using common-sense to supersede rules and regulations.
+ Taking care of self, in order to be able to assist others.
+ Setting boundaries to prevent being overwhelmed by other people’s requests.
+ Differentiating between assisting and managing.
+ Concentrating only, on what you can control.
+ Desist from expecting perfection, instead of accepting daily progress.
+ Putting safety before academic achievement and economic growth.
+ Becoming more adept at using simple computer functions, which now affect every aspect of your lives.
+ Remembering to never allow fear to overcome your faith.
