This is temporary

Right now it feels like you're stuck in a loop. The same house. The same computer. The same short, dark, cold days. It's all temporary. This pandemic is temporary. How you feel right now is temporary. Please don’t forget, there’s a whole life ahead of you. This too shall pass.

And when life does feel like it resumes, remember that life is long and changeable. You don’t have to settle with where you’re at. Hobbies, jobs, friendships, and interests all come and go. Don’t let tradition or habit imprison you. Enjoy your present circumstances, but don’t make a pact with them. You owe it to yourself to explore the short life you have. The people who didn't make it through this year implore you to.
