As the girl sat on the couch at the end of the day, she was able to reflect on the world around her.
Sitting on the opposite side of the small couch was her aunt, who had been surprisingly calm during this time.
This crazy time.
A time where nothing and everything made sense at the same time.
A time where the lack of normalcy has become the new normal.
A time where no one knows exactly what to do, so they embrace any silver lining that they find.
It can be the sun shining, someone sending a sweet text message or even people playing online games together when in reality, they are miles away from each other.
Sitting on the floor is the girl's eight-year-old cousin,
who was engrossed in doing her mother's nails while trying her hardest not to smudge the Mickey Mouse design she was working her hardest on.
For a child, this new enactment is something they cannot quite wrap their head around.
Little do they no, it is something none of us can wrap our heads around.
Everyone should strive to be like children during this time of crisis.
To find adventures in the smallest of things around the house, like doing a scavenger hunt their mom found on Pinterest or making an entire water park out of blocks.
To anyone older, this may sound ridiculous, but why should people live this mentality?
The mentality of making fun of any situation, and seeing the world through the lens that everything will be alright with their friends and family by their side.
Quite honestly, it seems like the right mentality to have.
So, instead of constantly thinking of this prevention like the beginning of bad events arising, people should think about it as a child,
that everything will be alright as long as they have something to play with and someone to love.
