Snippet: It’s Okay to Look Forward ☇

Shared on March 21, 2020

Andy Nicolaides:

All that being said, this situation cannot, and should not, become all encompassing. What I’m trying to say is not only is it okay to keep getting excited, passionate and interested in seemingly inconsequential things, it’s almost neccesary. Now more than ever we need our small distractions. We need to keep ourselves on an even keel not just for our own sakes, but for those of our families and communities. No pressure guys!

This is my favorite time of year for sports—the intersection of March Madness, baseball starting up, the NBA heading to the playoffs, WNBA and NWSL also getting ready to get going. That, along with the usual spring tech announcements, and the nicer weather all add to fun distractions. Since a lot of that has quickly gone away in the last two weeks, it’s added to the hopeless feelings on top of stress. I think this post points out that we may need to take a break to feel overwhelmed, but during this weird time, we have to find enjoyable things to look forward to…I know iOS 13.4 is going to be a nice little moment for me next week.
