Finding Joy in The Midst of The Coronavirus

What’s Your #ToenailStory

Hi everyone, I’m Lori La Bey, Founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks. The Coronavirus has most of us spinning in worry and fear of what is going to happen next. I have been working hard behind the scenes to console many scared souls around the world and arranging some new supportive avenues for this strange time we are living in which I will be announcing soon. I thought sharing a personal story to show an example of what fills my heart and gives me joy during this difficult time might be helpful. I hope you enjoy the short video below.

Share with us where and how you find joy in a chaotic time.

As I sit at home in self isolation, due to my travels last week, before everything started shutting down, I got to thinking.  I like most, want to stay informed, but keep a sense of balance.  So many people are grappling to maintain a sense of control over their lives. 

I believe the gift of wisdom from living through many tough and blessed moments teaches us to let go of that we can’t control. For me, three life changing moments stand out: my father’s cancer, my mother’s dementia and my divorce. Each one of us have our own moments in time both big and small that impact us.

What are yours?

My situations have taught me to forge ahead in a conscious manner, getting clear on what I wanted from each situation.  It was these “out of control times” that brought me back to the basics. I figured out the more I adjusted my needs and wants to be simple, the calmer I felt. The stress melted away.

By focusing on being safe, happy and content, I become more grateful, more present, and more appreciative of small things like this picture of my toenails.

As Maya Angelou said,  “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,  but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
