Marie Osmond Shares Sound Advice with Fans Amid the Coronavirus Outbreak
Marie Osmond shares her newfound perspective on how people can "spread peace" just as quickly as the fear amid the growing concern over the coronavirus pandemic.
DO IT LIKE ROSIE THE RIVETER
During this trying time, people from all walks of life are chipping in to help others in need. From big companies like GM and Ford - who adjusted their processes to manufacture ventilators to everyday people offering assistance in soup kitchens to healthcare workers on the frontlines of the disease.
Fear travels just as fast as that oil and the virus.
To Marie, they all have one thing in common - the ability of people to come together during a time of need. In turn, it reminded the 60-year-old entertainer of Rosie the Riveter.
The cultural icon represented thousands of women that worked at the shipyards and in factories during the Second World War.
Using a photoshopped version of Rosie's iconic 1943 poster to illustrate, Marie also elaborated on how "a big bottle of peppermint oil" gave her an epiphany.
EPIPHANY IN A BOTTLE
Marie had accidentally knocked the bottle onto the floor and threw the towels she used to clean it up in with the rest of the regular laundry. However, after doing a load in the washer, Marie noticed that the oil had spread to all the items.
Suddenly, it struck Marie that fear can spread quickly, but the same goes for peace, as she wrote:
“It was sobering to see not only how fast it could go, but how I didn’t even realize it was happening. Fear travels just as fast as that oil and the virus.”
THE CHOICE BETWEEN SPREADING PEACE OR FEAR
Admitting that people "have good reason" to be fearful during these uncertain times, since their livelihoods and health "are on the line," Marie reminds followers that they can choose how they respond as she added:
"We have no control over the mile-long list of things the virus has taken from us but what we do have control over is finding some good in all of this.”
MARIE SHARES HAIR TIPS
While in self-quarantine, Marie also found a way to deal with her gray hair, and she didn't hesitate to pass along the helpful tips received from her stylist.
During a recent video chat with ET, Marie said that she reached out to her stylist for advice seeing that a salon visit is out of the question for the time being.
Happy to oblige, her stylist instructed Marie via FaceTime on how to pin her hair forward in a ponytail before pulling it over the protruding grays, effectively hiding them.
Choosing to see the positive in the situation, Marie added that it not only saved her money but that she also learned "all kinds of ways" to keep her gray hair in check.
SHE EVEN SHARES RECIPES
However, Marie Osmond's updates during her time in self-isolation include more than helpful advice on keeping positive and beauty tips. She also shared a yummy snack recipe for spending quality time in the kitchen with family.
Joined by her daughter and granddaughter, Marie shared a picture taken during kitchen time as they prepared "chocolate-covered raspberries."
