Lake Stevens, WA – Today I ruminated on the daily changes of the #COVID19 global pandemic. According to most timelines of the first reported case up to March 26th, 2020 it has been 87 days. To me it’s almost unbelievable.
Now, the United States has the most of case of the novel coronavirus, more specifically referred to as COVID-19 by the World Health Organization (WHO) on February 11th, 2020.
Here is a statistically breakdown of the United States…
Washington has the 2nd most in deaths, behind New York. For this reason, and many others, Governor Inslee has issued several Executive Orders to stay at home to slow the spread of the virus. It has culminated to this one.
Costco Wholesale, the company that my sister and I work for, has been deemed as an “essential business“, according to the Governor Inslee. That happens to be a double-edge sword for the two of us.
To be transparent, my sister works for Costco Travel, and has the luxury of working from home. Sadly, they reported the first COVID-19 related death last week. In fact, it was my friend, co-worker and former team mate [name withheld intentionally]
However, I’m at a warehouse therefore do not have that option. I thank Christ I’m healthy with a robust immune system, but I’m not immune to everything, or forever.
Furthermore, I’ve been tasked with co-supervising the doors. Yes, you read that right – I help manage the foot traffic in and out of the Woodinville Costco for 40 hours a week amid this pandemic.
I have been posting on my Facebook account positive messages with photos of my new role. I’ll refrain from complaining as there is enough of that. I feel no need to add to the noise.

So there’s only a couple hours left to this day, which means there’ll be a reset on your 86,400 seconds. My podcast with Accelerated Results 365 owner, Catherine M White, is still available to listen to, right here.
What will you do with yours tomorrow?
Keep digging, y’all. Stay home, stay safe.
