I know, being a creative and extroverted optimistic, my need for freedom and relationship with the world is beginning to stifle my generally upbeat mood. This week I finally realized that life has not stopped, if just requires a pivot and a little day to day routine change to adjust to our new environment. In this post, I am sharing several ways I have made minor adjustments and mastered new skills to maintain the lifestyle I once took for granted.
