We are supposed to be on an airplane to Arizona right now. My niece Olivia is graduating high school and we have been looking forward to seeing her graduate, spend time with family, and enjoy some Arizona sunshine. But with the COVID-19 pandemic, Olivia’s graduation was cancelled and our stay-at-home order was extended (until who knows when? I can’t keep up). I feel sad and disappointed that we don’t get to go, but even more disappointed for my niece, who doesn’t get to have a graduation. I know in the grand scheme of things, this is not a major catastrophe. We are all healthy and mostly staying sane. But I love to travel, and I am super bummed we don’t get to go.
How are you holding up with all the events that have been cancelled? I have a friend who had to change all of her wedding plans (that she had been planning for over a year) and ended up having a super-small wedding at home. I have another friend who was planning a trip of a lifetime to Europe that has been indefinitely postponed.
There are a lot of unknowns and uncertainty in the world right now. This can cause anxiety and stress. There are a lot of different ways to relieve stress, but one thing I like to do is think about my next vacation. And when it is safe to travel again, I will be ready. In the meantime, I will just be over here scrolling TripAdvisor and daydreaming.
