I woke up at 9:00am. I made my bed, washed my face, made a cup of coffee, and I enjoyed a slice of peanut butter toast with my husband. I’m not working atm, so the only plans I have are blog-related. Research, planning, and content creation. It doesn’t pay the bills, but it keeps me from going insane. A few months ago, I would have traded anything for this kind of free time, but it’s come at such a heavy price that I feel bad for enjoying it so much. What options are out there other than to look on the bright side when the alternative isn’t helping anyone, least of all yourself?
Camille styles wrote a blog post recently about how she’s cherishing these moments spent in isolation, and I’d like to think we can all relate with her in our own way. One sentiment that she shared in particular struck a cord with me, and it was that she felt anxiety about returning to the life as we knew it. Not just for fear of what life on the outside would be like, but for what we’d be missing back at home. For me those moments are so silent you can hear your own breathe, breakfast over an iced latte with a loved one every morning, and eating dinner at a decent time for first time in a very long time. They are the tiniest of life’s pleasure, but they mean the world to me.
I want to know:
How are you enjoying your time these days? What moments do you cherish the most? What perspective will you be taking with you into the new world?
