Life's Little Lessons

in #neoxian5 months ago

Our lives might not have come with a manual, or an instruction booklet to tell us what to do, or how to live our lives. But if we are willing to listen to our elders, to learn from the sages and wise men before us, we will be able to get a pretty good start on life, avoiding all the portholes that are dotted along life’s journey.

Howdy sir Vincent! So much great wisdom here. Many problems could be solved with just this advice "judge less and love more."

Howdy Jonboy. That's it. Life is so simple. But people are so bent on complicating it.

I agree sir Vincent but the coronavirus has complicated things a bit! Have they told you all to stay home and avoid people? That's what they're telling us over here. But then I always try to avoid people anyway so it don't bother me none. lol.

The virus is contained here so there is no need to stay home. We are advised to cancel functions and such where there is a crowd. No, our movements are not restricted.
Oh yes, you will be the only survivor on earth after this pandemic. 😊

lol....what about restaurants? They are closing all restaurants over here, it's a bummer although I never go to restaurants anyway, I haven't been to one in about 3 years.

So far, no news of the government wanting to close restaurants. It's business as usual. But the restaurants are badly affected - as expected.

Well that surprises me but it must not be as bad over there because of the smart and early steps y'all took in the beginning.

I think so too. I think it could have been a lot worse otherwise.
