for peace of mind…

For peace of mind,

resign as general manager of the Universe.

– Larry Eisenberg

I like this quote.  Yes, it is a little funny, but it is also so true.  We live in a world where everyone knows everything, wants to be change and of course speak their mind online and off.

During this difficult time, I hope you have come to realize that you are not the General Manager of the Universe.  Unless you work in an essential industry right now there may not be anything you can do about the current crises but stay home.  And that is important.  By staying home you are doing your part to stop the spread of the virus.

After a storm did major damage to the neighborhood where we live, Bob and I felt so helpless.  We wanted to help.  We were trained to help.  It took us a while but we finally had to realize the best thing we could do was stay out of the way and take care of ourselves.  Doing that helped the workers be able to clear the roads, restore power and get help to those who needed it.

So if you are working, as usual, bless your heart.  We all do appreciate the medical, retail, delivery and other workers who are working so hard taking care of us during this difficult time.  If you are at home, take care of yourself and your family.  You are doing your part as well.
