To work through some of my anxiety last night, I compiled a few of my favourite Kids and Animals images from the last couple years. Most of these have just sat on my hard drive but are too cute not to share :)
First, a bit about my thoughts right now (feel free to skip this and just scroll through the adorable pictures instead!):
I'm trying to avoid social media for the time being, as I have been having some extreme anxiety surrounding the scary things going on in the world. While I do think it is important to keep up on the facts around Covid 19 (corona virus), there is also a lot circulating the media that is untrue, and even some put out there it seems intended to create more widespread mass panic. We as a family are taking the recommendations to stay in, avoid crowds, and even avoiding get togethers with friends and family. I have also been quiet on my business page watching this all unfold, not 100% sure what measures to take. I have recently decided, that for the safety of my clients (esp newborns) and my own family, that I will not be taking any studio sessions on at this time. Having a daughter who requires hospital intervention every year due to a simple cold/flu bug because of her lung conditions is scary enough. With this new virus around that seems to attack the lungs, I am taking every precaution to limit our exposure, and in turn to protect her. I believe it is our social responsibility to protect others ( esp. the more vulnerable) now, by practising social distancing even at such an extreme level. I am surprised to see there are still a lot of individuals running businesses and working closely with people, newborns etc, however most non essential business are closing their doors (ie dental offices, massage centres etc.) which I think at this point is the right thing to do. Living with no income is hard... but living with a seriously sick baby, child, parent or spouse is even harder...
I hope these cuties can put a smile on your face!
