Stay Engaged & THRIVE Even With Coronavirus (COVID-19)

I want to encourage you and maybe help get the bounce back in your step - because in my humble opinion, all this media hype and its focus on the negative around the coronavirus is stealing people's joy. It has made many very fearful, and in quite a few cases very irrationally fearful. The facts as we know simply do not support the level of fear in our society today. Some authorities are beginning to I think make bad decisions also.

As an evidence-based community we have looked at the data and information from authoritative sources such as the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The facts simply do not support the fear being generated by the media. There's undue focus in the media on how many cases have been found and how many have died. There's no talk about how many have recovered! It makes me wonder. Some 2 weeks ago I read somewhere that over 43,000 have indeed recovered from the infection. We also know that people who contract the disease do recover and have recovered from it.

What I Know from the Coronavirus

It’s everywhere you turn these days - Coronavirus. You turn on the news (am not much for watching tv) and it’s as if the world is ending the way they are reporting it. The news media has been so skewed of late am not so sure what to believe. As I see it, many are simply trying to lay their opinions on me.

Some people have asked me what I think of the coronavirus thing. This is what I tell them.

I tell them I found out the other day that over 43,000 people who contracted the virus have recovered! How about that? Yet, all you hear about is how many contracted the disease, and how many died. I had no idea people survived the thing. Be careful of the data we’re being fed. I had not heard it anywhere else except on a news conference Vice President Mike Pence gave. Made me ask, “whatever happened with our news media? Whatever happened with the old media? Why is it the media doesn’t see the good anymore? Shocking. What does that tell you? Tells me a lot. Here I was thinking this strange thing is a death sentence if you catch it. Yet people are actually recovering. Wow!

So I tell those who ask. I don’t just sit there like a zombie and consume the junk outlets conjure up to bombard us with. I look for what am not being fed too. To me the media needs to find its way again. Its lost right now and doesn't seem to want to find its way.
