It’s one year later since Covid-19 graced our shores. A year ago today we had our first case, twenty eight thousand cases and counting over five hundred deaths later. Covid-19 has ruined a lot of lives. People who depended on Tourism was first affected, with little or no travellers to support them. The government gave grants but that money could only cover a week’s meal. People had to get creative, challenge the status quo. Covid-19 was bad but it birthed an appreciation for a level of creativity I’ve never seen before, it challenged people to think outside of the box or even made them throw away the box all together.
One year later though some people may not have the same jobs are living differently it has allowed people to reflect. I too have been affected my this virus, thankfully I remain negative however when you’re used to spending time with family and friends taking different adventures every other weekend not limited to a 8pm curfew; that sucks but I’m still alive and very thankful.
During the pandemic I got so bored being at home that I started doubting myself. I however after much thought created this blog as an outlet to share my thoughts. Surprisingly when I started writing I didn’t expect that there would be so many people all over the world ,would support me. The interactions grew and friends of deetheory was born. My self doubt birthed a new passion of sharing, believing that someone out there wants to hear what I think and that is just awesome.
Covid-19 has not only been bad it has made people more conscious about their health. It’s rather fascinating that I haven’t caught the common cold since I’ve started paying attention to everything I come in contact with. Visits to the doctor were for different ailments outside of my control.
For everyone who has lost someone to this deadly virus, sincerest condolences. If you are still trying to put a grasp on all that has happened and still trying to navigate your life whole strain you have made it this far and that’s something to be grateful for.
The vaccine has graced our shores and I can’t wait to take it. I know things have changed but this is the only chance to get to some form of normalcy. It won’t be business as usual but it will limit the need for certain restrictions.
What has been your experience? One year later how has Covid-19 treated you?
Until next post…
