Tough times never last, tough people do

The first identified Filipino that got infected with the Covid-19 virus was recorded in January 2020 in Manila, Philippines. By March 2020, the virus has spread to reportedly 81 provinces in the country- including the province of Cebu. Thus the beginning of the implementation of the country wide Enhanced Community Quarantine. Since then, life hasn’t been the same. Face mask, face shields, social distancing, and staying home as much as possible became a necessity. Everyone was hit in different ways because of the Pandemic, including businesses that sadly have to shut down.

Yet according to activist Desmund Tutu, hope is being able to see light despite all of the darkness. Fast forward to August 2021, though we haven’t got back to our normal lives yet (the life without face mask), I’m still blessed in a way that I still have a job despite the run of events. I’m thankful that TimeRiver Design Inc. made sure that we keep our jobs and that my TimeRiver Design family keeps giving me a reason to look forward to even if there have been changes in the work on site set up.

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about dancing in the rain. So eat healthy, practice safety protocols, have enough rest, and hold on. I cannot wait to hug each one of you as soon as this ends.
