How are you all doing?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if  thread like this has been done before or if this is the right section but I am just curious as to how everyone is doing. We are dealing with unprecidented things in our world. Not just our little private escort/client world on this site but in general throughout the human landscape of our planet. My hope is all of you are managing to cope with the stress and uncertainty that this bizarre year has brought us and I do hope you are finding things to do  to take your mind off it all. I realize that I have never met almost all of you in person and can't say I truly know you but I honestly feel a bond of online friendship to you all and care about everyone's well being. So I am reaching out to wish you all the best and hope some of you can share stories of how you have been able to cope.

  As for myself, I have been in a position where I have had to deal with literally dozens of people daily throughout this crisis. Before this all started last year, I retired from my trade and moved out of the oil patch to somewhat wind down a little. I went to work for Home Depot so I could work in a controlled environment and be able to help pass on some of my knowledge and experience while getting to meet new people.

  Needless to say, the retail DIY business has boomed due to the pandemic. People have a lot of time on their hands and are doing projects to fill the void and probably as a way to take their minds off things. More power to them I say but my thoughts of slowing down a little in my 60's has been pretty much shot to hell. I find myself putting more miles on than I ever did and the stress level gets very high at times. However, I am in a place of somewhat quiet calm mentally. I have found myself delving into projects at home, experimenting with my culinary arts, still enjoying some moments with companions when possible and not really thinking heavily on all the problems out there. Fortunately, my physical health is not a concern as I am in very good shape for a man my age and my energy level is quite high. I am fortunate in that regard and realize that some folks aren't so lucky.  I will continue to concentrate my efforts on staying positive and upbeat as best as possible. And I will continue to show respect and kindness to others and make an effort to be an example to others on how to treat people right. Regardless of gender, race, orientation or anything else, we are all human beings in this together and the more we can do to reach out to others and lend a hand or even just a kind word of encouragement, the better chance we have of making the world a better place. 

 So again, I wish you all well and hope you find ways to remain positive and healthy. I am also more than willing to help anyone as much as I can with any questions regarding health or mental self awareness or how to fix little things around the house. At least as best as I am able. Cheers to you all out there.

It just like you @peacectryguy to reach out to all your Lyla friends and care for us all.  As for myself I have been stressed about this virus thing and I feel it.  I'm happy that most of the people I know take the precaution as to not catch/spread it by using mask/shield.  In the middle of March I had just got back from a 1 week trip to Cancun and my wife and i really enjoyed our time and were actually talking about going back as soon as we could.  Well this went downhill fast upon our return, we were recommended to stay in quarantine for 2 weeks and we did without problems.  Afterward I returned to work alone and was putting orders outside for the customers to pick up on their own.  Things got a bit crazy and a few more employees came back to work and we all kept our distance and have been wearing a mask for protection.

The one thing that I missed the most was to see my little family and when Doug Ford said that we could have a small circle of friend and relative they were the first that we seen, now I see a few biker friends and we go riding together.

Thanks for asking @peacectryguy and I hope you stay safe and healthy my friend.

Cheers to all you all out there.

That was well said peacectryguy.  I think you are an example of how we should all try to be.  I'm a strong believer in modeling the behavior you like to see in others.  You know lead by example.  It's easy to criticize others and be negative.  It's harder to look for the good sometimes and remain positive in these days.  I know I don't find it easy.  But I try to be a good person and hope that it encourages others to try to be as well.  We can't fix covid and all the rest overnight but we can make little things better each day.  Hopefully they will add up.

Thanks again for the positive vibes. 👍
