Pandemic 2020-21 ~ May

The Finish Line???

“Today is a great day for America, ………“Get vaccinated — or wear a mask until you do.”

“We’ve gotten this far — please protect yourself until you get to the finish line.”

~President Biden~

The numbers; the cases, the deaths and the hospitalizations have suddenly plunged here in the United States. And in what seemed to be an about face, the CDC declared no more masks for those who are fully vaccinated. Forty Percent of the nation has been vaccinated. And the rest, for various reasons, remain unvaccinated and continue to be at risk of infection. Along with the announcement came confusion.

On May 13th, 2021, there were 39,825 new cases here in America and 791 new deaths (Worldometer.com):

So, as the confusion settles, it comes down to continuing to do what you need to do to feel safe. I’ll be wearing a mask in situations where I’m coming in contact with others. This is my season of rest. My time to slow down. So ‘back to normal’ for me is what it has been even through this pandemic. I’m easing up of my expectations for myself. A season of rest which is nice at this stage of my life.

Ways to accept and lean into a season of rest:

*****************************************

~Allow~ 

There is no controlling life.
Try corralling a lightning bolt,
Containing a tornado.
Dam a stream and it will create a new channel.

Resist, and the tide will sweep you off your feet.
Allow, and grace will carry you to a higher ground.
The only safety lies in letting it all in –
The wild and the weak: fear, fantasies, failures and success.

When loss rips off the doors of the heart, or sadness veils your vision with despair,
Practice becomes simply bearing the truth.
In the choice to let go of your known way of being,
The whole world is revealed to your new eyes.

  1. I’m vaccinated but still wearing the mask when I go in stores. All of the stores I visit continue to impose the mask mandate, and that’s fine with me.

    • All along it was about personal responsibility and becoming informed. The CDC was correct in removing itself from being the ‘Mask Police’. Then there’s those who have always considered it ‘child abuse’ and ‘victimization’. Ugh!

    • I’m with you! I’ve never been a person who likes crowds. There are some things that I’ve stopped doing during the pandemic that I’ll most likely not go back to.
