The One About Silver Linings

I reposted this quote on Instagram yesterday and I wanted to save it on my blog, too, to look back on! It brought me to tears as I was reading, it’s just too beautiful of a sentiment not to share…

I can’t wait for a years time, when all of this is a distant memory and there’s a corona baby boom because all of the lovers were lovin’.

And there is a rise in small business because all the entrepruners had a moment of stillness and creativity.

And all the children remember nothing but a time when all the moms and dads were at home and drawing and playing board games and we remember it as a time we all got to stop and be present.

We will remember the time our health was our first priority and people learned new ways to use fresh produce to feed their famlies and we were all forced to think outside the box and dream up new things, and reinvent old ways and for once even amongtst the chaos, there was community. There was a global rise in togetherness and the streets were quiet but our homes were bustlin’ with love and laughter.

That time is coming… soon just like the other crisis before it this will all be a distant memory, a thing we soon listen to our children discss in classrooms, a once was; that we share with our grand babies.

So to you ― I know it’s unsettling but focus on the silver lining, we are in this together and there’s so much beauty to see.
