We all have a special something inside of us. People of different cultures and religious backgrounds have a number of names for this. It is an unseen, mysterious energy that all life has. Some call it Chi, or one’s life force.
After working a full day, my wife and I decided to take a car ride to our local county park. Here in Michigan, with our current Covid-19 stay at home order, we are allowed to spend time in local parks as long as people maintain our set social distancing guidelines.
I love and miss my wife! With both of our jobs, working as first responders of one type or another with the Covid-19 crisis, our schedules changed so we don’t have a single day off together anymore. This month will mark almost 25 years of friendship. Times like this really make you dig deep inside, but it is the love you share with a special someone that makes it all worth something! Take care everyone 🐼✌️🤙
Needed to get outside my house will the stay at home order in place. Order restrictions allowed for visiting other property so I headed to the family farm for some Rest and Relaxation.
This simple visual distortion kind of represents for me the number of feelings my mind is processing during these pandemic days of isolation.
Only in great darkness can we see the light.
Keeping an active mind, blogging, channeling negative energy into other positive creative outlets and maintaining a self-care routine are the ways I have learned work best for me to keep my light shining.
I have included an example of the artwork in which I have channeled some of the negative emotions into something I enjoy. I hope you enjoy this as well.
What are some of your favorite coping strategies during difficult times?
