The Silver Lining of the Pandemic

During the shut down, I experienced a lot of positive changes:

  • From families dressing up in inflatable Unicorn costumes (so their faces where covered) for their evening walks and also visiting children’s houses when it was their birthdays
  • Spending more time with family
  • FINALLY getting to hobbies that I have been meaning to get and have just been living in my closet
  • Reading a book!
  • Enjoying my backyard and relaxing in a my camping hammock
  • Just time to BREATHE

I also got to ask myself some really good hard questions about what I want out of life:

  • Where do I see myself in 5-10 years?
  • Where will I be if things don’t change?
  • What are my obstacles to getting to where I want to be?
  • What is most important to me?
  • How can I live a life more in alignment with my values?

All these questions, restablish what is my vision of life. Not what I was told, not what I am pre-conditioned to believe I “should” be doing and reevaluate my values.

I know that Pandemic/shut down has been difficult for most…..yet with every moment of compression is a test to reevalute what is no longer serving you. With enough compression, enough tests of your will and resilence, even a lump of coal will come out as a shining diamond.
