Chapter 1, Page 25, Book 21

You cant take back the past, but you can fight for the future.

January 25th. - focusing on the future.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Sometimes we spend a lot of time thinking about how it was in the past instead of looking at the possibilities of what is coming in the future.  We now have a fight on our hands against Covoid 19 and often wish wed get back to the days that came before life as we know it now changed.  We wish we could return to the days before the virus hit us with a blast. The thing is, we may never return to the way it was, but we can fight for the future.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel and while it may take awhile to get there, we’ll eventually get there.  It’s not going to be easy and will take some effort on our part.

Not everyone wants to get vaccinated, but the sooner we do the more our chances are of seeing another day free from the virus. I heard on the news that by the fall 90 percent of the population should be vaccinated and things could start to turn around.  

Knowing how fast time goes.  The fall isn’t all that far away.  If we can just stay safe and healthy until we can get there. .  We have to do what we can to mask up when we go out and keep our safe distances and keep on washing those hands when we can.

I try to limit myself on how many times I go out each week and watch to be careful it’s not too crowded where I go.  We can fight this good fight with everything we know how to.

Do not let the memories of your past limit the potential of your future.  There are no limits to what you can achieve on your journey through life, except in your mind.

We can do it if we persist and keep on the good fight!

Eleanor was a bright woman, I do enjoy quotes from her. She was unique. Now, yes we do have a fight on our hands. We wear masks when we are in company of public places. We now have two active cases in our family and try to do what we can to help.
Sherry will take the vaccine when it is available to her, me probably not. I do not take the Flu shots, not that I think anything is wrong with the shots (there are lots of theories about the vaccine) I just have a 'THING' about injecting anything 'unnatural' into my body.
I took enough 'shots' in the military because they were REQUIRED. ;-)

Anyway, I am careful and trust my instincts, they have worked for me for many years now.
Sending love your way lady, YOU be safe.
Sherry & jack

Look how fast last year went, fall really is only a short time away. These new strains are getting more scary and now they are saying we should all double mask when we go out. I sure hope we can get the vaccine distribution ramped up very quickly!

Like Martha, I saw yesterday where they're recommending folks 'double-up.' What harm can it do? I love how people are looking at what's POSSIBLE instead of what's not. Crossing fingers I'll get put on a waiting list sooner rather than later.
