Being an Avon Mom:
Let’s Choose to Be Kind
Right now I know many of you are freaking out at some level. Some of you may be like me, buff up and are ready to tackle whatever is coming our way while others may be having panic and/or anxiety attacks over the unknown that we are about to embark in with this quarantine. I will admit that up until this past weekend I honestly thought it was not going to effect me or my family. It was “big city” problems. Then this past Friday, our school department decided to close schools for the next few weeks. That’s when it started to really hit me and then I went grocery shopping and saw so many shelves empty… Oh My God! This is bad! Being who I am, I wanted to come up with a game plan for my family and in that process decided I can help others by making a blog about it.
For my Coronavirus quarantine blog, check out AvonMom’s Survival Guide to Coronavirus Quarantine for Families.
In doing research for my blog, I realized I was very naive to how bad it was, even within my own state, Massachusetts. I will say, normally, I am not one to really watch the news on tv or even look at their posts on social media. For me, I choose to limit the amount of news I watch in order to keep as much positivity as I can in my life. Trying to still remain positive, I truly believed, as a society, it would pull us closer together & make us better as a whole. Boy was I dead wrong! I can not believe how rude & nasty people are being, especially to store clerks and those working in the stores. I am still in shock by what I witnessed this morning at my local corner store. I understand people are stressing out and worried. I get it… but does that give you anyone the right to yell at others, be disrespectful, talk down to others or just be full fledge assholes? I was raised to respect everyone, regardless of who they are and what is going on in my own life. I personally feel that times like this is when we really should be more respectful, more understanding, more compassionate.
I’ve always lived this view where no matter how bad things are going for me, there is always going to be someone else who has it worse. How do you know it’s not the store clerk cashing you out or your neighbor or even a family member? Right now I feel that we all need to take even just a few minutes out of our day and think of someone else:
Do you have an over abundance of toilet paper? Why not put some in a bag and give a couple rolls to someone you is on a fixed income.
Do you have an elderly family member? Why not check in on them, even if it just a few minute phone call.
Do you know someone who is or has a family member that has been diagnosed with Coronavirus? Why not drop off a casserole or offer to pick up their medication for them?
I understand we are suppose to be minimizing contact with others but who say you can’t drop these things off on their door stop or make a simple phone call.
I truly believe that there is more good then evil in our world and I feel this is the perfect time to show how good we really are!
I hope all of you & your families get through this quarantine healthy & safely and make sure to stay up to date either by watching the news or checking government websites for accurate information & instructions. Good luck!
