I Can See Clearly Now!
In the midst of all that is going on in this chaotic time, sometimes we get off track, lose focus, and become overwhelmed with distractions. The title says, I can see clearly now, if you think about the words I am sure you begin to sing the song, "I can see clearly now the rain is gone, I can see all the obstacles in my way...", you know rest! But at the end of the song, it reminds us that it will be a bright sunshiny day. And the only reason that the lyrics have changed is simply because what we see as an obstacle is merely an opportunity; we must change our perspective.
Let's take a moment to break this down a bit, go with me if you will. As the nation is being rocked by this thing that has now been broadcast throughout the airways, many of us are trying to prepare for the unknown. Purchasing items in bulk that we primarily only purchase at minimum or as a necessity. Watching television intently to stay abreast of the latest updates and outbreaks. Scrolling through our social media pages to stay "informed" on what store was out of said items, and how many meme's we can come across that make light of a serious situation. But in the midst of it all, are you still able to see clearly? Simply put, when it is all over, and we are still among the living, we must still be able to move through this thing called life; stay focused.
The question then begins to loom in mind, what have we been doing with the time that we have been given? Have you never taken 20 seconds to wash your hands? Are you one that always touches your face? Or has your subconscious taken over to constantly make you feel like you have an itch; stay focused. During this most distracting time, what are you doing with your time? I implore you to block out all the nuances, turn off the television, remove yourself from all the noise and work on your next move. I am reminded of a song...
I'm Praying for you,
