COVID-19 is having a huge impact on everyone’s life. If you told me a few months ago that this would be happening, I wouldn’t believe it. It’s crazy how much has changed, and sometimes it’s hard to focus on the positive things. Personally, I can’t help but think about what I could be doing if it weren’t for this lockdown. I miss my friends, my family, my soccer team, and just my regular life. But, despite the struggles, I manage to be grateful for everything I have. My family and I are very healthy, we have enough food, and I get to spend a lot more time with my sister, brother-in-law, parents, and my niece and nephew. During this time, I’ve come to appreciate the things that I might have taken for granted previously, and it’s really set everything in perspective. I know that this will soon pass and our lives will eventually go back to normal, so we just need to stay strong and get through this as fast as we can.
