The Great Hate Challenge

By | Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

I have learned a lot about people socially during this Covidiocy we are in.  I see a lot of opposing views and comments on social media, always have. These days I wonder if the work or stay home stress is causing it to be so much angrier. I just can’t these days.  I’ve begun socially distancing myself from social media for the sake of sanity. I only like social these days when I see what people are up to or sharing stories about their family or something they are proud of. Now that’s about 1/3 of it. There’s another 1/3 that…

Putting the ‘X’ in Anxiety

By | Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

I wanted to take a walk. This wasn’t my first walk since you know, this. But it was my first walk in a few days of possibilities to do it again. I used my yard as my physical activity lately with sunny, spring days. I just wanted a walk. Headspace. A good playlist as I Appreciate every clear, pain-free breath of fresh air. Or so I hoped. Then it became a jog and short cut back. Just go home, I thought. I’m a people pleaser, I get it. I’m the one that will go out of the way to ease…

The Only Employee Who Should Fear Being Let Go

By | Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

I keep reading all of these fear-inducing articles about what employees should fear losing their jobs right now – entry-level, duplicate duties, overpaid managers…. Look, I fully get that in a grim and gloom world, that’s a natural assessment of the weakest links who shouldn’t get a rose to move on to another week of reality. Sure, maybe this is the excuse your boss needed for some time to dismiss those types of employees who fit within the above stereotypes, but I’d call that a preexisting condition that affects the virus. Those employees you questioned in the past, the ones…

Signs, Signs Everywhere are Signs

By | Heather, Pandemic Thoughts | No Comments

Signs make things official. A sign makes a rule. A rule sets an expectation for the readers to follow. We use signs as décor within our homes and landscaping to communicate our beliefs or passion or declaration of unity. There are signs to allow us the opportunity to self-educate or pay homage lest no one forget the real story. Lately, we have a new category for signs similar to the rules but merely policed by societal judgment.  Sadly, I get it. The whole gamut of signs that had to be cranked out to immediately communicate the new way things gotta…
