I have moved a fair amount in my life from on job to another for a new adventure. I like to try out new things and places. I always said I would move until somewhere felt like home and no where has yet. I am 36. Most people my age have mortgages and spouses and kids. I am not saying I want those things, I just think I am outside the norm. When I compare myself to that sometimes I feel bad. What I do have is a life full of adventure. My worst fear was never trying anything new and always living within 20 minutes of where I grew up. It’s cool for those who want that, but I personally can’t imagine it. It’s so limiting on your life experience. I wonder if I will ever not have the urge to wander and move. Maybe never. But I am not upset about that. It is simply who I am. Maybe I was nomadic in a prior life hahaha.
I KNOW I am not alone on this so I wanted to share some fears I am having with the current situation with Corona Virus. I work in an industry that depends on people leaving their homes and coming to a public space daily and for large events. The Corona Virus stuff (even if you feel it’s a media thing or a real thing or what) is a very real problem in my world right now. It’s causing all kinds of chaos – particularly in my brain. What if I can’t work? How will I pay bills? Do I need to move home to Phoenix? WTF am I gonna do in PHX when all public facing jobs wont be hiring? This is the type of panic running around in my brain at the moment. I know a lot of you out there are experiencing the same thing and are in the same situation. I just wanted you to know you aren’t alone. The best I can do is take it one day at a time and be grateful for everyday I get to go to work and make money to live. I am also grateful I bought toilet paper from Costco before this all went down ;).
