A New Beginning

At the end of February, I started thinking about getting my hair cut and colored. It had been a while since my last visit as I tend to space them out for financial reasons. I hadn’t yet picked up the phone to make an appointment, and then a few weeks later, COVID-19 started to change the world in a very significant and personal way. Businesses were closing, our gym closed, the hair and nail salons closed, everyone was asked to shelter-in-place, and only essential businesses were allowed to remain open. I asked myself, why didn’t I make that appointment sooner? I could have easily just gone in and spent the money. But, like many others, I wanted to make my dollars stretch as far as possible. The world watched and waited to see what would happen next. The number of COVID-19 cases grew at alarming rates across the world. What we didn’t expect was the number of those who would die tragically because of this horrible virus. The world was plunged into a panic and situational depression of sorts.
