Right now, in my area, the Covid-19 risk is decreasing. As I watched the media coverage the first year of Covid-19, I saw celebrities discover:
Managing life at home requires skill. Lots of skill;
Not traveling whenever or wherever you want is an eyeopener;
Homeschooling is hard. Very hard;
Untrained moms and dads can homeschool;
Cooking three meals a day for weeks and weeks requires creativity;
Not having a daily hair stylist means your hair is not perfect and takes more time than you have;
Not having a make-up artist means your make-up is not perfect and takes time than you have;
Caring for children 24 hours a day is exhausting;
Slowing down brings joy;
Your children want you more than the stuff your money bought them.
Thank you, Rich and Famous—especially morning news anchors—for your honesty. You may have lived a radically different life from mine pre-Covid-19, but in some ways, you were like me all along.
What did you learn watching others adjust due to the pandemic?
