Are you finding it hard to view your cup as anything but half empty at the moment?
There seems to be a real feeling of despair as we approach Christmas, a typically fun and social time of the year. Families are deciding who makes the Christmas day “cut”. Farmers are putting Turkeys on diets to keep them small enough for 6 and retailers and the leisure industries are bracing themselves for more lean times.
At times like these, it’s worth remembering just how well off we really are in much of the World.
We have food in our bellies.
We can still get out and about, even if it doesn’t seem as fun.
We have technology so that we can communicate with loved ones.
So let’s spare a thought for those of us who’s daily struggle is not the fact that they forgot their facemask when they went shopping, or they can only stay out until 10pm in the UK.
Let’s spare a thought for those for whom Covid-19 rules and regulations would be welcome instead of their daily battle for food and safety and freedom.
