Your home is not a physical structure, or even the people who you surround yourself with. You are your home and all the details of your life are the bricks and mortar used to build it.

The fact is, things are only just starting to get uncomfortable on a material level as businesses close their doors and people who’ve struggled living paycheck to paycheck now may not even know when the next paycheck is coming.

A lot of you are working yourselves up over the possibility that you may find yourself homeless before too long. While that is indeed a logical fear, it’s also something you have little to no control over at this point in time so try to focus your energy on preparing for leaner times.

Know that there likely will be programs or charities that can aid you and don’t be too proud to seek them out, but don’t place all your eggs in that basket either. You have a universe of knowledge and opportunity at your fingertips and now more than ever is the time to take advantage of that. You don’t have to map out your exact path, just explore, create, and experiment. By doing these things with an open mind you can decide what works for you and what doesn’t as you go. I guarantee you that whatever skills you’ve developed for your career in “normal” life can be applied to so much more than you thought.

It’s not going to be easy but I guarantee it will help you breathe a little easier because you will have far more control over your security. Chances are you will remain on that path even when the world opens up again because your previous path did not fit quite so well.
