I look forward to reading your comments every time I write a blog or do a video. Some people agree with me. Others don’t. I always appreciate your feedback all the same. Lately, I’ve really appreciated hearing how the COVID-19 situation is affecting all of you.
We have all been touched by the pandemic. Some are feeling the effects more than others. A lot of people are feeling social isolation. Some are already feeling a financial pinch. Others are worried about their loved ones in essential jobs.
What I’m loving most, though, is seeing a community come together as one.
In my neighborhood alone, I see tables with free craft supplies set out for kids. Teddy bears everywhere for “family bear hunts.” People are offering up what little cleaning supplies they have to those that have none. I see people offering to run to the stores for those that can’t. I’m even seeing local grocery stores offer free food to those that have been laid off and are in need.
Amid this crisis, it’s truly a beautiful thing to see people focused on those around them. We normally spend so much time focused on ourselves. The difference has been profound. And the community spirit feels like magic in the air.
The small acts of kindness are the miracles we need to get through this. And that is a lesson unto itself. If you feel like you need a miracle right now, focus on service.
BE THE MIRACLE SOMEONE ELSE NEEDS.
People have lost jobs and lost income, but there’s no reason to lose hope.
Everyone has something to give. Focus on giving. Give what you can – money, time, or skills. It doesn’t matter. There is a need we can all fulfill. Give as charity when you can. Or, if you’re looking for ways to increase your own income, focus on giving, and you’ll find success.
Purchasing, in general, has slowed down, but it has not stopped. Hone in on what people need right now. You can build an income or sustain a current business just by tuning in to others’ needs.
Think about the skills you have and figure out how to use them. Think creatively and make a list of everything you do well. How can you use your skills to serve others in need right now?
- Are you a grammar geek or a former science major? Offer up your services for online tutoring. There are a lot of overwhelmed parents out there struggling to help their kids with remote schooling.
- Can you sew? Make masks to sell in your community. Donate to health professionals what you can. There are patterns everywhere online.
- Offer to make meals for essential workers putting in long hours.
- Ask senior neighbors and family if they need help shopping online for their essentials.
- Are you especially good at computers? People and businesses need help in setting up virtual offices. Offer your services on community message boards.
If you have a business already, ask yourself how can your business transfer to the current economy. Can you move face-to-face meetings online? Can you make how-to videos? Can you sell different products or services? Can you meet the direct needs people have right now, isolated in their homes?
These are crazy times, but with a little creative thinking and a positive attitude, you WILL get through this. We all will.
