This week marks seven months since everything changed. The last day of school, our last night out. Cancelling all contact with the outside, isolated at home, hiding from a virus that is still walking rampant in our streets.
This pandemic has affected all of us, but in a different way in each case. As I have heard before, we are all in the same storm, not on the same boat though. Personally, I don´t know what has been harder between the lack of solo time or failing at my first attempts at homeschooling while also potty training.
How do you feel about these months and the ones to come?
Sometimes I want to put everything on hold indefinitely. Then I realize that is not me, I can´t keep for myself everything I have and want to give. I am still grieving our previous life and after going through the denial phase and feeling defeated for a while I constantly remind myself to be intentionally grateful and embrace all my roles instead of resisting them.
Thankfully we have stayed physically healthy and have somehow managed to stay emotionally and mentally healthy too. We have received multiple financial breaks. We have baked cookies and cupcakes in spite of the permanent pile of dirty dishes. We have celebrated birthdays and driven through safaris. I launched In Our Thirties, I have offered remote interviews, webinars, podcasts, worked remotely on a TV special, I started working out again now via Zoom, while keeping in touch and increasing social media contacts.
This is where I am right now. Thanks for meeting me here and for supporting me all the way.
I would love to know about you:
