Where are you on the new reality scale?
I hope I'm not duplicating some of the other current threads here, but I think this one takes a bit of a different approach.
The world as we have known it has changed- for how long, we don't know (I'm still optimistic that in a year or two we will be back on track, but probably a simpler, more cautious track). So I'm curious as to how long it will be before day to day life feels "normal". I don't mean necessarily normal like it was a few months ago, but normal in a new sense. I wonder if this new norm feels normal to some people already (hard to imagine). It sure doesn't for me. I'm finding I'm not as resilient as I'd like to think I am (maybe due to age?) and struggle each day to roll better with the punches. But I think eventually my brain will begin to lock into the changes and things will start to feel more routine- maybe harder and and more challenging, but at least more routine and "normal". I hope so, because the daily anxiety sucks and is counter-productive (but I'm always looking for tools I may have left out of the box).
So I'm curious as to how others here are doing with accepting the current state of life as we now know it. What do you find most helpful to accept where we are at? What advice do you have to give others encouragement and hope?
And, of course, as always, I want to wish everyone the best. I sincerely hope you're all doing OK.
