I hope all of you are staying safe and well amid the corona virus pandemic. For at least the next few weeks I will be visiting with you through this column, which will be posted every Friday on SKIL’s website. I am working from home, like some of our employees, and hope to return to SKIL soon.
I want to encourage all of you that we will get through this. We are strong, tough and resilient people who have survived other life hardships. We will survive this, too. Stay calm, think positive and channel your energy into doing helpful, productive things while self-isolating and taking care of yourselves.
Do you have a cluttered closet you have planned to clean out? Clean it out now, you have time. Do you have a book or magazine that you’ve been meaning to read but have put off? Read it now, you have time.
Does your house or apartment need a Spring cleaning, but you’ve been waiting to tackle it? Spring has arrived in all of its beauty, so tackle it now, you have time.
Sort through those clothes and other items you want to donate, sell or pitch, cook a favorite meal for yourself, pamper yourself a little and use this time at home wisely. Every day that we are given is a gift. I hope you will savor it, regardless. Find a reason to smile and laugh.
