*this* John W. Hays' take on things and experiences

Look Ahead

with 3 comments

Take a break from the growing fear and uncertainty embedded in the crest of this pandemic wave rolling across the globe and look ahead to the day when it will be a block of time in history. Turn off the news. There will be updated reports awaiting you in the morning. Check those and then get on with your day.

There will be a day when you once again get to hug those you love. Look forward to those moments.

My friend, David Keiski wrote a song about it and performs in this video he created for us all to enjoy at a safe distance. Let his words ring across the world!

Don’t be embarrassed about deciding to set it on “repeat.”

  1. Ah! John. Just what I needed this morning… Your words and David’s song! Wow…he is talented. I love the song and video ๐Ÿ™‚
    You wrote about exactly what I am trying to do…look at the news in the morning and then live my life…in the moment…with love and gratitude. I won’t lie and say that fear doesn’t take up residence at times…but I do my best to let my faith be larger than my fear. Much love and best wishes for you and Cyndie! Stay safe my friend โค

    • I LOVE your blessitudes, Lorrie. Here’s to the art of intentional control of the fear to redirect to more productive outcomes. May you reach the healthiest of vantage points!
      Hey, Cyndie is keeping warm in Florida, at her parents’ winter home. I am experiencing a spring dose of the northern chill today. The bitter wind and heavy gray sky seem to be echoing the dreary news of the current crises. I have an easy remedy of returning to the comfort of our house. Outdoor projects can wait.

      • I work on it every day, John ๐Ÿ˜‰
        I hope Cyndie is staying safe…as well as warm down here in my favorite place in the world! I feel so sad they closed our beaches…I understand why…all those spring break kids in Miami were acting as if they were not vulnerable to this virus. It’s sad for us because ours is not a well attended beach…and I feel so alive going for a walk on it. Oh well…small price to pay.
        Stay in your warm home and do something fun inside, John…you know as well as I do that the outside stuff will be there waiting for you ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Be well!
