Disconnect from the Panic

Hi there everyone! I expect you all have given up on me, since I rarely post anymore, but I’m still here. Just to consumed by my immediate surroundings to have time for the virtual realms.

I’m writing today to share a few thoughts about this Corona situation.

To me it isn’t so terrifying, it isn’t even a real crisis in my opinion. While everyone outside my immediate family is glued to screens, obsessing over the news and orders to hide out in their homes and avoid all unnecessary contact with other people, we have been enjoying time outside in the warmer weather. We started Geocaching with the children, which has led us on unexpected adventures. We all feel so calm and at ease here, as well as a few friends who don’t buy into all the hype. Even our family doctor shares our views.

For me it is clear that the answer isn’t to get ourselves into a panic and frenzy over all the headlines and Draconian orders coming out, but rather to disconnect from all that fear mongering and get outside. Rediscover our connection to Grandmother Earth. Trust and Go Forward. Fear causes us to freeze or flee. But you can’t run from this, and living in fear won’t solve anything.

Trust. Trust that there is a greater purpose to this new viral strain. Although we cannot see it yet, trust that nature will run its course and that we will come out stronger when this has blown over. Reach deep into the heart of our Grandmother Earth and find peace there. Reach up high to Grandfather Sky, where the eagles soar, to find wisdom there.

All the rest is just distractions, pulling you out of balance, causing you to lose your sense of self and to lose your connection to all that really matters. Embrace the moment, for you never know when it will be your last.

Enjoy this time when life has slowed down. Spend time with family and loved ones. Take care to protect those who are vulnerable, but don’t hide and cower in fear.

Relax and just breathe. We will survive this and life will go on. Take this opportunity to learn something about yourself and your place in this world, to grow.

Have a wonderful day, everyone, wherever you are!

First off, who am I? My name is Jessica Urquhart. Writing has always been a hobby of mine, which got its start in middle and highschool, when I'd write short stories for the amusement of my friends and classmates. Currently, I'm working on my first book, my one true love of a story I've been saying I would one day write. Well, that day has come. If you'd care to follow my musings on the adventures and hurdles of writing my first fantasy book, then please, read my blog.

  1. I agree. Anyone that can take this time to breath fresher air and get out in the spring weather without taking any undue risks should certainly give it a try. We’ll all have a story to tell when it’s past.
