Day 16: Semi-Quarantined Against CoVid-19

Hey hey Leute!

There is a lot of surviving going on right now.

Sneaky corona-cat.

Honestly, Marc and I are really good at being quarantined together.

We had to live in one-room attics together for several years. Even with our three-floor castle house in Bavaria, we are spending 90% of everyday together in the living room.

(Does anyone need to borrow a floor in our house for some peace and quiet?)

Marc is cooking most of the meals, while I am busy organizing all sorts of things and creating content for the blog, my teams, and my friends.

Then we've been working on the colossal 1500-piece puzzle, which we *think* we will finish today.

I think the people who are "doing well" in this quarantine and lockdown situation are the people who are able to pivot. People who have hybrid talents. People who can "chameleon" into what society needs currently.

The "essential-workers" who can exist in their own personal hyper-mode right now are very specific: housewives, health care workers, grocery store employees, and basically anyone who has an online career.

I am very, very thankful that despite my career revolving around a domain that has essentially been canceled until further notice, I have quickly transitioned to the other options that exist for me.

(Note: I have ALWAYS said out loud that, "Our jobs are totally irrelevant in the event of the Apocalypse." Right again, dang it!)

It's really okay if you are a focused-on-one-skill-type and only feel like you are good at one thing. I hope you can use this time to either expand your skill set or even just discover that you are, in fact, good at other things, too.

We are all going to need to be flexible. Flexible with our own time, flexible with the world's timeline, flexible with the varied emotional responses (both now and later), and flexible with how recovery is going to evolve for all of us across the globe.

So let's find our hidden talents and new skills and use those to strive forward into the future, which, for the first time in our living history, we must face the unknown collectively.
