How The Corona Virus Is Affecting Many Of My Goals For This Year

I've been doing emotionally well lately, despite the fact that the corona virus has effected me and everyone else too.

However, I had some goals that I was hoping to achieve this summer. But thanks to the virus, I'm not so sure I'll be able to accomplish those goals this year.

For example, I was hoping to take a rental and do some traveling. I was thinking of going back to the Mid-Atlantic states like I did during the summer of 2011, as well as maybe go to Long Island, New York (I've never been to Long Island before).

Traveling back in 2011 was fun for me. Lots of good memories.

If I can't do these things this year, hopefully I can do them in 2021 instead.

What goals did you have for this summer? Can you still achieve those goals during this pandemic, or will the virus force you to postpone those plans?

I‘m an American living in Toronto. My daughter lives in south Jersey and my wife, and our 3 kids had hoped to spend a week this summer at the shore, spending time with her. We all miss seeing her. At one point early on this year she had wondered if perhaps she and her husband could come up here, but then the virus really hit, and everything got closed up including the border.

So we are hopeful we can all get together next year. Canada has flattened and then lowered the curve. I wish the US could get that done.
