  1. Hello Kate! How are you doing? Wonderful list of choices here – a good reminder for all of using during these troubling times to choose kindness and compassion. We all want to come out of this a “victor” with our integrity intact.

  2. “To be, or not to be, that is the question:
    Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,”

    Shakespeare — 1603 …. he had it right way back then…..

  3. Great insights. It helps to keep our eye on the goal. The threat of global contagion makes choosing to live humbly and in solitude an effort in transforming us and our world into a better and more unified planet. Actually, though, social distancing or self isolation is not really a choice. How we adhere to it is. Thanks for your great post.

    • good point but I didn’t include them in the list 🙂
      Some of us have prior experience so it does help … most of us will survive and come out all the stronger for it 🙂

    • Right you are! If you had added them, they might have looked something like:

      Social Distancing Getting Sick
      Self Isolation Spreading your sickness to other people

      Great work you do every day Kate.


  4. So true, SweetKate! We all have choices. Thank you for reminding us.
    I always want to try to choose the positives…as that will help me AND everyone else.
    I’m being tested on the “calm or alarm” one this week, but calm is winning today.

  5. I choose love, kindness and compassion. I choose to understand rather than judge; i choose to help rather than neglect and i choose accountabilitty rather than blame.

    I hope this gets true to all.
    Life would be good.

  6. I choose kindness. Every action/inaction is a choice. And each choice has a consequence. Although we can’t see what the future will bring, from past experience I know that putting goodness and love into the world will bring blessings back to the sower. Let’s all plant positive energy and hope for healing… maybe plant peas/peace?!

  7. We took a walk the other day and found several places where the sidewalks were decorated. Chalk was left out too… though I’m not sure if anyone took that offer up.
    I saw a couple of the children artists playing on a blanket in their yard and thanked them.

    I have chalk from when my grands visit… I might decorate my sidewalk too! I played on the Hop Scotch board on my block twice in one walk… but with all the rain we had all the drawings are gone. Time to add some joy!
