Some good things to come out of this pandemic

Looking on the Bright Side

This pandemic has had a lot of ups and downs, but I think we should try to look on the bright side. We frequently hear about the bad things, but there have been some positive changes as well. 

  • People can connect even easier than before. More and more people have used Zoom or Google Meet to talk to their friends, take a workout class, or do school. I have even attended a couple of online birthday parties. 
  • You don’t have to worry as much about what your face looks like in public. 

When you are wearing a mask, you can make a weird face and no one would know, unless you have one of the clear masks. 

  • Some people have a new hobby.

There were a lot of people baking cloud bread, and making whipped coffee. Some learned to paint, and others learned to work out. There were people figuring out how to play an instrument or starting a business. 

  • We have found more ways to do things differently. 

2 years ago if you would have told me I would be doing all my school online, I would not have believed you. More businesses had to deliver or do curbside pickup. Streaming services had you pay to get a movie ahead of time instead of going to theaters to see it. 


So much has changed since this pandemic shut everything down in March of 2020. It has been almost a year, and we have needed to change how we do things and see people.
