Inspiring storyteller, writer and speaker, Dr. Nina Kelly urges readers to remain cheerful in the midst of current historic events even though everyone is being asked to self-isolate and avoid socializing for the time being.
New Orleans, LA – March 23, 2020 – Dr. Nina M. Kelly, Inspirational Storyteller, Coach, Author and Co-Author of The Big Question with Larry King, and Success Mastery and Success Breakthroughs with Jack Canfield, recently posted a new blog on her website entitled, “An Historic Spring Equinox.” Dr. Kelly talks about the arrival of spring in the midst of a pandemic.
Dr. Kelly states, “This is a springtime like we’ve never seen before.” She continues elaborating, “First of all, the Vernal Equinox which is happening today, March 19th at 11:49 p.m. EDT, is the earliest it has occurred in 124 years. In other words, spring is arriving earlier than it has in more than a century.” She goes on to add, “Usually, the arrival of spring is a glorious event However, this year it is arriving only to find the entire globe in the midst of an historic pandemic.”
“Yes,” Dr. Kelly writes, “the entire globe is being affected by an invisible virus that is spreading faster than a bit of juicy gossip in a small town. It has given rise to the phrase, “social distancing” which we humans are not so good at.” She emphasizes, “We like to go out and mingle and talk and socialize. It’s in our DNA. But, in order to halt the spread of this deadly virus, we have been asked to stay home and only go out when necessary to get food or go to the doctor.”
