Top 3 Lessons from a Pandemic
Wow! It’s been rough. The amount of loss that comes with a pandemic is very real and hits each one of us in both similar yet different ways. Whether you lost a job(s), family, loved ones, your favorite restaurant/ store, or the success you gained from years past in whatever area(s) of life. Loss sucks. Before you say, “Thanks, Captain Obvious!” I wanted to take a positive spin on what we all have been through because staying in a negative space that quite frankly we were all in before COVID-19 even hit the atmosphere of reality. So here are my top 3 personal lessons that I have learned from this experience:
Magical Pajama Pants
When I saw the best thrift shop purchase challenge, I could not help but look down because still to this day since being a freshman in high school, a little over a decade ago. I went into a thrift store in the DFW area with my mother, which normally means that I get done within five minutes and die of boredom or get in trouble while the neverending story actually starts. This time was different as I felt drawn to the rack in the far right of the store maybe it was the training or predestined fate, but I found the best pajama pants on this side of the galaxy that day. I was swiping like a madwoman on Tinder who gonna show that man what is good until the heavens parted to show me my soon-to-be “uniform” for the next decade. Those pants and I spent the next two and half hours being drug around as my mother and grandmother shopped till they literally made us all drop. Every few minutes after asking if we were close to getting to go eat would be followed by the hoping for the pants. Finally, after eternity and a day I got to go to the register with my precious treasure. Then just when some folks think God is done working miracles those pants became mine for just five dollars.
