“Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can.”―

DAILY DIARY was the challenge chosen for partner Susan and my alternate site Weekly Prompts. In this time of personal isolation and uncertainty it might be a good plan to start your own personal daily diary listing your feelings, thoughts, fears and hopes.
In the past number of days I have quietly noticed the many shades of humanity expressing itself quite publicly in super markets ( hoarding of toilet paper) , drug stores ( staff working to handle the overflow of customers demanding their medications as soon as possible) and the empty city buses making their rounds about the city with maybe three or four riders with a few of them wearing protective masks and gloves.
During this time of intense self centering there are many unsung heroes who drive the buses, deliver our mail, cashier us at the cash registers and handle the day to day maintenance of banks, gas stations and bakeries.
Since we are all now restricting our movements in public areas it is an ideal time to start your own personal daily diary and have your family members write down their feelings and experiences in their own diary.
This action will help you to not only focus your thoughts and observations but also discover that the other people you inhabit in that place called home have their own fears, hopes, beliefs, desires and goals.
This is the best of time to relate to other members of your familial crew and make a few great discoveries of your own.
One day when VOCID 19 has become a distant memory you will be able to look back and read the way you handled the stresses of the day and how others also coped.
A daily diary is a means of sharing yourself with others and learning who you are in this crazy world.
The COVID 19 virus is now being descried as a “communal virus” affecting one and all. Why not go viral with your diary contents and share the way you are handling this current crisis.
All that takes to happen is a pen or pencil or even crayon, some writing paper and the resolve to not panic but focus in a way on yourself and your family.
To share shows that you care. Do it today.
