Another long round of isolation and quarantine over Covid19 and there seems to be no end in sight at the moment. It’s been a difficult road to take, and many people are feeling it. After I finished my Yoga teacher training, which was such a great class, I went into a slump because everything got shut down – again. I thought this is the process and I’ll get out of it soon, just this time it’s been slow going. It has really made me think of those things that I love to do and appreciate them so much more. It’s feeling like a tug a war; doing what is considered to be right for the greater good but then feeling the weight of that, with no recourse on it. People are struggling, financially, mentally and physically. No matter which way you look at it, a world pandemic and human isolation is not good for human health. Like all of us, we can hope that the vaccine will help, and someday things will be back to normal.
In the meantime, it’s one step in front of the other and keep moving forward. I have been feeling pretty stuck, but I have decided to try to think of at least 5 things to be grateful for each morning. Gratefulness is a cure for the poor me syndrome. I have also come up with a new somewhat sarcastic and funny expression, every time I start feeling like, “why did this happen, or why is this happening to me” I say, “YAY ME!” – not that I have ever seen London Tipton use that phase, as more of a I am spoiled and great meaning. But I use it as a funny, sarcastic, just move on phase, “yay me” is reminding me that, yup that sucks but it’s also kind of life too. Life is messy and not perfect, so I guess a little sarcastic levity is perfect.
5 things I am grateful for:
Have a great day you all, where every you are at… until we meet again.
