I want to share as we are all going through much the same, with staying home. I am not a introvert and this is hard for me personally. I do try to make the most of it. However, its so easy to think about things outside of your control. I also realized how life seemed so much more complicated prior to COVID-19. On the flip side there is a silver lining to this quarantine lifestyle. The air quality is clearing up, and word of water in some areas are getting better. Most of us are becoming more aware of the importance of life, and what really is important to them. The fact that our lives can change drastically in a second. We realize people’s true colors in a time of a crisis.
I for one who loves to laugh, and have found it hard to find reason to lately. I miss a lot of things in my life right now. My family, co-workers, friends, and Freeman most of all. The hardest part for me is spending time with that special someone, just to be ripped apart suddenly. To not know when you will be able to see them again. When all you have are memories, texting, and video chat. Some days it’s a struggle not to cry.
I know we all are going through this together, and in a weird way. I am finding some comfort in knowing I am not alone. I will be fine, as I am starting to find ways to focus on positive thoughts of my future. I think it’s so important not to lose hope. We will come out of this stronger, and hopefully more humbled.
If you are fortunate to be quarantined with the ones you love or care about. I hope you are using this time wisely. Remember, most of you, sure wished at one point you had more time to spend with them. Here is that chance. As I sit hear doing some reflecting. I hear birds singing in the quietness of the morning. Spring is in the air, and a light at the end of the tunnel.
This is a huge change for all of us. It will take time, so don’t be so hard on yourself. I for one am working on minimizing the negative news. Focusing on more positive, loving, kindness, and acknowledging my emotions/feeling.
