Why wait for tomorrow

We're all in a unique situation and whether anyone really did predict it or not, we can't really say we were ready. I mean, we would have had supermarket store rooms filled with toilet roll and hand sanitiser for a start. But it's not just the hunt for toilet roll that unites us, no, it's the fact that for the very first time we're all in this together.

No matter who you are, what you do, or where you live, we're all having to live life differently. COVID-19 has come along and shown us that we really never know what life has in store for us, what tomorrow might bring. So while we sit on our sofas wishing we'd got on with it and visited our elderly aunt, or simply bought more hand wash, surely we can see there's a lesson to be learnt. That lesson is to seize the day.

Ok, so we can't just go skydiving tomorrow, or head to New York or wherever it is that's you've always wanted to visit, social distancing won't allow that. But it is the perfect time to reconnect with people, tell our friends how much they mean to us, and tell our families how much we love them. We might not know what tomorrow will bring, but won't you feel happier knowing that you took the time to talk with those you miss, check on those you care for and make sure those really special people in life know just how special they are. Why wait to tell them?

When this is all over, and it will be over, there's some really clever people working on that right now, what is it that you want to take away? Do you want to look back and think about all of the news reports you read and how you tracked the virus around the world, or think of how you connected with people and made others smile.

In a world where we have very little knowledge on what tomorrow is going to bring, make today count. Right now nobody is judging you on how clean your house is, how your nails look, or the fact that you're wearing the same joggers again. Surely that means there's some time for you. So while you think about what to have for lunch, or what to teach the kids next, spare a little time to think about what else you could do today.

Let's end this time of isolation and social distancing more connected than ever before. Knowing more about each other and knowing who our friends really are. Let's make every hug we're going to be able to give really count.

COVID-19 is bigger than all of us but it doesn't mean it has to beat us. Let's aim to come out stronger.
