How are you doing?

It’s been quite a journey the past 19 months. Through all the ups and downs, openings and closing, protests and head shaking I want to reach out and ask you how are you doing?

I was getting a vibe from people that they are exhausted from all the Covid talk. I have to say I was on that team too. It seamed that the only thing anyone had to talk about was Covid, the vaccine, protests, closures etc etc. I say I was on that team, as in past tense, because I decided I didn’t like it so I jumped off and started my new live your life team.

Don’t take this wrong. I 100% support the front line workers, I’m just ready to live my life again in a way that is available to me.

I have done what is asked of me to keep myself and my community safe. I am double vaxed, I wash my hands, wear a mask indoors in public places and try to social distance when I am in situations that need it. Other than that my new normal begins.


  1. Talk about Covid incessantly anymore. We all have our opinions and thoughts and I know I’m not the one changing it.
  2. I will turn off the news when they go on and on and on. I will get the basics I need from reliable sources and move on.
  3. Engage anyone who wants to argue or force their opinion on me.


  1. Live my life fully within the direction outlined by public health.
  2. Spend my time doing the things I love and seeing the people I miss.
  3. Continue to share my message of Happy Monkeys 5 pillars of happiness and hopefully make a difference in someones life.

My hope is that when I see you and ask, ” how are you doing?” You will say, “great! “
