This is all very strange. The world has come to a slow crawl with this corona virus and it’s a bit disorienting. I’ve had some tough times in life but I choose to focus on the positive outcomes through adversity….
Let’s all find gratitude in the garbage.
I am grateful for an amazingly supportive management team at my job.
I am grateful that I am staying home more. Since Tin passed away (only and almost 2 yrs ago) I haven’t taken enough time to sit, reflect and hold space for myself like I have this weekend. I was widow worried that my lonely was coming to get me. Surprisingly enough, this has given me time to realize it’s ok to slow down. I don’t have to keep busy to keep the grief at bay. I have been worried that relaxing would turn into depression but I’m finding it’s actually the opposite.
I am grateful that (in this social distancing) we are all actually slowing down together and connecting with one another by phone and video chat. We are actually socializing more in many ways. I have been on long phone calls with friends I haven’t actually spoken with in years. Funny how I feel less lonely now during a pandemic. Strange how the fates unfold.
I am grateful that the planet is getting a break from the wear and tear of daily human life. Of course I wish for everyone to be healthy and safe but I’m trying to see positivity in all this. The earth seems to be cleansing and healing a bit. Once all of this is over, maybe we should consider giving the planet a yearly vacation from the people.
If you don’t find gratitude in the garbage than you’re always looking at a life as a pile of trash. It’s hard but placing perspective on perception can take you to better places…
Stay Safe my Widowed Family
