Since COVID started, we have all had to make changes to our daily routines. Tasks that we used to do without a second thought now take extra planning and preparation … When is the best time to go to the grocery store? Do I have my mask? Do I have my hand sanitizer? Do I have to touch that keypad? We have all had to figure out what works best for us while still doing everything we can to keep our families and communities safe.
And while all of this has been a huge inconvenience and has had so many negative impacts on our mental health, it has also allowed me to find gratitude in the small things. Gratitude for my continued health and the health of my loved ones. And the blessings that have allowed me to pivot working from home while still bringing in an income for my family. And, of course, gratitude for my newly discovered expertise in all things Zoom and video calls!
I have been hearing from a lot of my friends and clients. I am hearing more questions than ever about advanced care planning and financial documents (what needs to be updated, how often, how to do it).
People want to know if they need a DNR and how to make one. Questions about estate planning. What do my clients need to do, what do their parents need to do? This is such a time of uncertainty, and we are all dealing with changes on an almost daily basis.
I do know that the only way we are going to get through this is together.
