Its been a stressful couple of weeks for almost everyone around the world. I’m sure even if you live under a rock, you would have heard about either COVID 19 or The Corona Virus. 🦠 After going through a panic attack caused by the consumption of way too much information, I decided to start focusing on the positives, the good news and the little things I can do while sitting my pretty butt in my house.
