First off I want to say Happy March! Where has the time gone already. I hope that everyone is having a good week so far. Today is a good day because it’s the annual Spread The Word Inclusion day and this year they are talking about connection. Which I think that we can all agree that we need to be more connected more than ever, especially during this pandemic going on. It’s definitely been very hard on everyone because we haven’t been able to spend time with all our loved ones outside of our own households. It’s great that we are still able to stay connected with our loved ones even if we cannot be together in person by talking with them on the phone, by texting and also being able to still see them by video chat. For myself connection is so important because being able to connect with not only your family but also your community around you is extremely important. I know that a lot of people are probably missing being able to go out into the community doing the things that they love and seeing the people as well. We all need to be around people because that’s how we were created and we are not used to being told that we can’t be around other people. I know that for myself not being able to connect with people in person has been difficult on my mental health. I know that I am not the only one who has been struggling with their mental health during this pandemic. That’s why inclusion and connection both go hand and hand. Everyone wants to feel included weather that’s being part of a sports team, a work place, school event and or just being part of your community. The more inclusion that goes on in our world today means more connections. That’s why social media is so powerful in our world today, because we are able to connect with people from all parts of the world who can share the same interest and be connected. I am so grateful that I am able to use my social media platforms and my blog to connect with so many other people that are like myself with disabilities and also others who don’t have disabilities.
