Being Optimistic through the Winter with Pandemic

The numbers of infections and death spiked in the past week, the date of back-to-office was delayed once again. The dark cloud of COVID-19 is still floating over the world, it seems that we are continuously walking in a tunnel without seeing light in front.

Working at home for over eight months I really miss the daily commute time and the interactions with colleagues at office. The thing I love most is the communication with coworkers through calls and Zoom.

Couple of days ago I saw a quarrels jumping around in my backyard, looking for corns / acorns underneath the snow. Soon after he digged one out using his tiny paws, he ate it with smiling and satisfaction on his face.

I was amazed by the optimistic attitude from this little creature near me. Suddenly I realized that for those animals happiness is so simple to acquire even in brutally cold place. For us with a warm roof and the company from families, shouldn’t we appreciate that we already have and enjoy every minute regardless of what situations we are currently facing.

Thanks for visiting my post!

  1. Squirrels are quite cute…unless they’re stealing birdseed from your bird feeder. πŸ™‚ They may be out in the cold, but they wear fabulous fur coats, which has to help.

    I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.

  2. What a great lesson to learn from nature. At this point we should be grateful to still be alive, have our friends and families and a job. Too many people have lost one or all of the above.
