Just when you think it's safe to go back into the water... or theatre, store, gathering, etc... The Delta variant is here to Debbie Downer it all. But is this a surprise? No, but it still hurts. From a business perspective, I was ecstatic as the rules began to lighten and doors began to open. Now I have the fear that I may lose the customers I have as we move the needle back towards more restrictive guidelines. . People may return to self-quarantining. This could be a hard thing to survive as a business.
From a health and wellness perspective, I am a champion of taking every precaution to be safe. I'm vaccinated - 3 times! I got the third shot since I have a variety of auto-immune disorders. I wear my mask. But I know not everyone is in the same space. It's challenging to see the health of my fellow humans be at risk because as a country, we are divided politically on a health issue.
So, here we are. Divided. Scared. Maybe, angry. Where do we go from here? All I can do is what is best for me, my child, and my fellow humans. I follow CDC guidelines for my wellness center. I surround myself with people who are in survival mode. We are the warriors doing the work. It may be overkill. It may be blind acceptance. But what I am happy to say is we are not a group of people who are putting ourselves over the greater good. I want to see everyone on the other side of this, not just me and mine. I am hopeful I will get to see your smiling faces soon, giving you a big ole hug. Take care out there!
