A positive message….

This is a slightly re-writen post from something I wrote on 1st November:

Boris’ announcement yesterday brings more unrest and uncertainty to our country, and I’m sure a lot of us are feeling dissapointed and deflated that we are having to go back a step.
.
.
Statistics show a rise in domestic violence reports and more vulnerable children are suffering from malnourishment. There have been job losses and financial difficulties for many.
.
.
But, although we face more tough times ahead, and a Christmas unlike anything we could have imagined I want you to also try to remember:

💖 We came together as a country during both lockdowns, albiet in different houses, we were united in our goal to protect the NHS and save lives – and we were successful!

💖 We spent time with our family unit/children that we wouldn’t normally have had.

💖 We did have some good times through all the shit this year has thrown at us all, and we will again.

💖 We made pictures and plaques to remind us of this time.

💖 Some of us made lifestyle changes for the better thanks to all that time at home.

💖 Some of us finally made that move to open their own businesses they’ve been longing to open.

💖 Some of us had career changes and are now helping others in the community.

💖 We already know we’ve gotten through worse, so we know we can get through this.

💖 We now have a vaccine so are closer than ever to finally getting ahead of this virus.
.
.
Of course, it hasn’t all been sunshine and rainbows, there have been some really tough times for all of us, but now more than ever I think we need to try and focus on the positives, (I know I do!) we have gotten through this once and made a difference to this damn virus and we can do it again! X
