COVID Was a Piece of Cake

COVID-19 hits everyone differently. I fell into the fortunate few category of having a low-grade fever, achy joints, and no energy. The fever lasted a few days and the achy joints and energy loss lasted longer. And then I got the first COVID vaccine. I work at a school, and I’ll do anything to have in-person, maskless interaction with my kids. The first vaccine gave me a low-grade fever for 36 hours, and took two days to recover from. Almost as bad as COVID, but not for as long.

And then life threw me some curveballs. I just crawled into my office to schedule this podcast. Walking isn’t an option right now, and my arms are tired from using crutches all day.

What Do YOU Do When Life Throws You Curveballs?

I’ve learned over the years I have two choices on how to handle unexpected events. I can let those curveballs knock me out of the game, or I can choose to have a positive attitude. As a competitive person, I don’t like getting knocked out of games, so I choose to own my attitude. In today’s podcast I share what works for me. I’d love to hear what you do when life throws you curveballs!
