WORRY

5/19/2020

TODAY’S DAILY WISDOM WORD IS WORRY.  I FEEL WORRIED FOR OUR FUTURE, ESPECIALLY MY FAMILY WHICH INCLUDES MY CHILDREN, MOTHER AND GRANDCHILD AND OUT OF STATE BROTHERS AND SISTERS. WORRY AND FEAR CAN ZAP OUR  ENERGY AND DESTROY ANY POSITIVITY WE MAY FEEL.  THIS PANDEMIC CAUSES ME GREAT STRESS AND WORRY.  ALSO KNOWN AS COVD-19, IT IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS THAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE 21st CENTURY. AND THERE IS NO ENDING IN SIGHT.  A CURE FOR THIS MEGAVIRUS IS NOWHERE IN IN SIGHT AS WELL AND WE CAN ONLY WATCH AND WAIT AMID A FALLING STOCK MARKET. 

WHEN ONE THING HAPPENS, ACCORDING TO UNIVERSAL LAW, IT SETS OFF A SERIES OF “THINGS” OF  LIKE KIND HAPPENING LIKE AN AVALANCHE ROLLING DOWN A MOUNTAIN BUILDING MOMENTUM AND THE MOMENTUM CONTINUES TO INCREASE UNTIL IT REACHES THE BOTTOM OR END (RUNNING OUT OF ENERGY).  IF YOU HAVE EVER WITNESSED AN AVALANCHE ROLLING DOWN A MOUNTAIN, YOU WILL NOTICE ITS SPEED INCREASE AS IT GETS CLOSER AND CLOSER TO THE BOTTOM. LET US ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT THE DEFINITION OF WORRY.

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF WORRY-1.  GIVE WAY TO ANXIETY OR UNEASE;  ALLOW ONE’S MIND TO DWELL ON DIFFICULTY OR TROUBLES.

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION OF WORRY-AN EMOTION OF FEELING TROUBLED WITH SOMETHING THAT GREATLY CONCERNS YOU OUT OF YOUR CONTROL.

NEXT, I WILL MAKE SOME SUGGESTIONS HOW WE CAN MAKE THE BEST OF EACH OF THE DAYS THAT FOLLOW:  

1.  COVID-19 WILL GET WORSE, BEFORE IT GETS BETTER. 

2.  WE MUST HOLD ONTO HOPE.  IN THE PAST, WARMER WEATHER HAS CAUSED A SLOW DOWN IN A VIRUS SPREADING.  LET US PRAY THIS IS THE CASE WITH THIS VIRUS. 

3.  WE MUST LET GO OF TRYING TO CONTROL IT OUTSIDE OF WHAT OUR OWN PERSONAL CAPABILITIES ARE.  IF WE ARE AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE SPECIALIST, OUR CAPABILITY TO MAKE A CHANGE TOWARDS HELPING OTHERS DIRECTLY AFFECTED WITH THIS VIRUS IS MUCH GREATER THAN ME, FOR EXAMPLE WHO IS NOT AN INFECTIOUS DISEASE SPECIALIST. 

4.  WE MUST NOT ALLOW FEAR TO BECOME GREATER THAN THE STRENGTH OF THE VIRUS ITSELF. 

5.  WE MUST HELP IN WAYS THAT WE ARE CAPABLE SUCH AS WASHING OUR HANDS FREQUENTLY, KEEPING COUNTERTOPS AND HAND TOWELS CLEAN AND MAKING SURE WE HAVE PROPER SUPPLIES ON HAND. 

6.  WE MUST LISTEN TO THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE PROFESSIONALS AND THE ADVICE THEY GIVE US SUCH AS PRACTICE “SOCIAL DISTANCING AND STAYING AWAY FROM ANYONE WE CAN AVOID HAVING DIRECT CONTACT WITH. 

7.  WE MUST LISTEN TO THE NEWS  NOT TO OBSESS ABOUT IT BUT TO STAY UP WITH THE LATEST EDUCATION THAT AFFECTS US DIRECTLY.  IN THE CASE OF COVID-19, THERE ARE NOT MANY FACTS THAT CAN’T CHANGE. YES, CANNOT CHANGE.  I HEARD ON A REPUTABLE NEWS CHANNEL THAT “LABELING” HIGH-RISK GROUPS AS ORIGINALLY THOUGHT MAY NOW NOT BE AS EFFECTIVE AS WE ORIGINALLY THOUGHT. 

8.  EVEN THOUGH WE MUST STAY SOCIALLY ISOLATED, OR DISTANCED, WE MUST KEEP OUR MINDS BUSY WITH PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITY.  IF WE ARE NOT DOING THIS AND CONSTANTLY WORRYING ABOUT THIS VIRUS, WE WILL NOT MAKE IT THROUGH THIS TO THE OTHER SIDE WITH OUR SANITY. 

9.  AS I HAVE OFTEN SAID, WE CANNOT CHANGE THE PAST.  (I OFTEN HEAR OTHERS SAYING “WE KNEW THIS WAS COMING AND DID NOT PREPARE FOR IT).  MY QUESTION TO THEM IS, HOW WILL THINKING ABOUT THIS, DO US ANY GOOD WITH OUR CURRENT SITUATION?  WE MUST LIVE IN THE PRESENT.  WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE FUTURE EITHER, EXCEPT WHAT WE, DEPENDING ON WHAT ROLE WE PLAY OTHER THAN WORKING IN HEALTH CARE, CAN DO WHICH IS WASH HANDS FREQUENTLY, AND KEEP COUNTERTOPS, SURFACES, HAND TOWELS CLEAN, AND OBSERVE SOCIAL DISTANCING.

10.  ALTHOUGH SOCIAL DISTANCING SHOULD OBVIOUSLY BE OBSERVED, CALL LOVED ONES OFTEN, ESPECIALLY LONELY FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE COMPLETELY ISOLATED-REMAIN POSITIVE WHEN INTERACTING WITH THEM.

THANKS FOR READING ABOUT WORRY, ESPECIALLY SURROUNDING COVID-19, AND MY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO BEST COPE.  MAKE IT A GREAT DAY.
