Life purpose don’t always show up in big announcements or with fanfare, but are often right in front of us in the daily arenas of going-about in life. We’ve done some valuable groundwork and going-about to arrive at this point, here in week #7. Kudos for showing up! It’s good to have your presence. Despite derailments and distractions, we’re trekking along and experiencing transformation even while in quarantine under ‘Stay at Home’ regulations. Amidst all the happenings, be grateful for each day, and note personal enrichment experiences during this season. We’re updating our knowledge (via online classes, more reading, YouTube, Netflix, etc), acquiring new skills, and learning myriad methods for doing useful things. Grocery shopping online seems oddly normal. At home, we’re cooking more. Notice consumption patterns changing.

Many of us (hoped) expected that by now we would have had a good sense of what the new normal would be. Reality is still undetermined. But with resolute determination, we are thriving well. We’re making lemonade. We’re finding a wellspring of creative measures for current conditions. By happy chance or tiresome contrivance, let’s make an elixir (a particular type of medicinal solution) for handling existing ailments.
