Knowing when Change is coming

  How are you dealing with the world right now? This has been one of the most hideous years ever for almost everyone in the world. The worst I can think of was a century ago when the Spanish flu killed 50 million people worldwide. Now the world has changed because of this new virus. The number of changes that have altered the environment and social actions of people because of Covid19. Everyone is struggling in some way some are even rebelling. These situations are scary for everyone understandably but we need to stand together. It will get easier with time and resources but these again will take time to find a vaccine or cure How are you dealing with the situation at home or work?

I would be foolish not to recommend reading it. So although this is a short post, I wanted to add more information. And since my previous post was a year ago on my original blog and rather than just edit my post I thought I would write a completely new post.  Love and Peace xxx
