One-liner Wednesday – time to change your game plan

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do

John Wooden – the Wizard of Westwood!

Times are challenging for everyone. Life as we’ve known it is on hold. I’ve stopped scanning the news every hour… too depressing. Instead I’m focussing on what I can do. I can scrub my greenhouse and get it ready to grow salad greens. I can knock my front garden into shape while chatting with neighbours from a safe distance. I can do an on-line yoga class. Outdoor meditation in the peace of my back garden. When I put my mind to it the list grows, one idea snowballing from another.

What’s everyone else doing to keep chipper? Whatever it is, stay safe and healthy.

  1. I will be joining you with at-home yoga when the opportunity arises, but work has been keeping me busy (I’m safely – I hope – in a small government office). When the weekend comes, I have plenty of projects and hobbies to keep me busy, along with a few unread books.

    1. As I work from home anyway, it’s more or less business as usual for me. It’s the after-hours time that’s different. One thing’s for sure, the air quality will benefit from human movement restriction. 😊

  2. I’ve been getting used to being home since retiring. I will miss the little social interaction I treated myself to, but I can still talk to people. We walk for exercise and we can still do that.

    1. I bet it’s been a little weird and quiet for you. I’m so thankful to live in the middle of nowhere- room to walk the pup without getting too close to anyone else but close enough to enjoy a chat from a safe distance. I’m meeting villagers I haven’t seen in weeks😊

  3. I love your positive approach. In South Africa we are a little behind the rest of the world as far as the Corona virus goes. Gatherings of more than a hundred people are prohibited and several borders are closed but for those who want to, you can still go out. Eleven intrepid ten- pin bowlers turned up for the league today. We had great fun, never knowing when it will be our last opportunity.

  4. I love this perspective! I realized today that it’s been five days since I stepped outdoors — just going out to weed the flower bed gave me such a lift. I’m going to make being outside part of every day now.
