A New Beginning?

We are starting to see some light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel as we hear vaccines on their way! May I say we are cautiously hopeful. We, in Manitoba, saw some light in the summer when we had no cases, but alas, the second wave has been real and brutal. We wonder, can we start making some plans for the future?   Visits with family and friends, travel, go back to work in the office? We wonder what life will look like once this is over? Will it be the same or will it be different? The answer is very much up to us, isn’t it? What do we want to be the same and what do we want to be different?

I have heard many different responses to this question ... I can’t wait to get back to the way things were ... Do I want to be as busy as I was before ... Who do I really want to spend time with ... Do I need to travel so much for work ... I will just be happy to have a job ... My priorities are in question ...

Here is one way to start to find some answers to that question. Take the list from the last blog (below) and delete or add items as appropriate for you.  For each   item ask two questions:

When Covid-19 is over, what do I want to be the same (as before COVID-19)?

What do I want to be different?

  • Career
  • Family and Friends
  • Significant Other/Romance
  • Fun and Recreation
  • Health
  • Money
  • Making a Difference/Purpose
  • Personal Growth and/or Spiritual growth
  • Physical Environment

Your answers will start the planning process for a new beginning, with as many similarities or differences from your pre-COVID-19 life as you have the ability to choose.
