Surviving a pandemic is hard. Even if you aren’t sick. You have to socially distance and practice isolation as much as possible.
I have not been inside a grocery store since the beginning of March. Thank goodness for curbside pick up. And thank you to the shoppers who make it possible. There are many things I miss.
See that little notebook? It is how I cope. Every time I want to do something but realize that I can’t because there is a pandemic going on, I write what I wanted to do in the notebook.
Our memories are short. I don’t want to miss out on anything and I will surely forget some things. Now I have a record of them. I have a post-pandemic list of desires and goals ready and waiting for me.
It helps me to feel that I am not missing out. I just can’t do these things right now. But they are on my list.
- Spend time with my nieces (again & again!)
- Invite various friends over to spend time on the patio
- Spend an afternoon at the library
- Resume yoga
Your list may have different activities. But take heart dear ones, these restrictions will not last forever. One day we will be able to start work on our lists.
Peace to you.
