You Should Look for Signs. Here’s Why.

I’m a natural optimist but the coronavirus pandemic has seriously tested me. These are scary times. Like everyone, my emotions run up and down. Last week I felt I had a handle on things. This week, not so much.

But I believe in signs. They are everywhere if we are open to seeing them. I don’t always see them. Sometimes I’m caught up in my own mischegoss.

Yesterday though, day 32 of working from home, I was walking down my Brooklyn block to get some fresh air and my bi-weekly grocery shopping when I saw The Sign on the stoop of a brownstone: An old paperback copy of Dale Carnegie’s classic, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living.
