All my life, my jobs have been considered essential. I've worked in horse barns, at dog kennels, and at veterinary clinics. Even in snow storms with a Ford Fiesta, I made the trek to work to take care of the animals. Never in a million years did I expect essential to include working during a global pandemic.
Social distancing these last few months have sucked. I hate not being able to see my best friend, my family, or even clients at work. I hate talking to people through doors or FaceTime. I hate wearing a mask everywhere, and I hate not being able to go to the grocery store every time I remember something small that I need. But guess what? I do it.
It's not a surprise to anyone that I really do not like this quarantine thing. I hate being pent up, and I am such a restless person. I kept two jobs throughout college, I worked 50+ hours a week at Disney, and I was known to petsit for up to three families a week. So naturally, getting laid off and being told I should only leave my house when absolutely necessary, as well as most of the places I like going to being closed, has been a huge slap in the face to me. But honestly, and I thought I would be the LAST person to do this, I must say it's been good in some ways.
Everyone has had their fair share of bad luck. And sometimes when it hits, it hits hard, and it can make you feel like the world is caving in around you.
It's been a long couple weeks to say the least.
Accomplishing any task can be difficult. Some are definitely harder than others, but I think any accomplishment can be seen as a huge feat, especially when it comes to shaping someone's future. For some people, it's a massive accomplishment to wake up in the morning, and for others, it's a difficult task just to go to bed at night. No matter how big or small, each and every accomplishment does a lot to shape you into the person you are, because each decision made to make that accomplishment shows a lot about your personal character.
