Its been several months since we have all been able to live our normal… visiting friends when we want too, shopping where we want to shop and popping into your favorite restaurant for dinner. How are you doing with all the changes? Right now is a good time to do a little mental health check and there are several great resources to help us.

I’ve had moments when I’ve thought to myself, we should be used to this new “normal” by now and that I should already be past any emotions that pop up. Its important for us to realize that this is a very unpredicatble time and that all of the feelings that pop up are normal and part of this process. I’ve decided that calling a friend and shraing those feelings is the best way for me manage the uneasy feelings. My hope for you is that you too feel comfortable having those conversations with your peeps too,
