PUTTING THINGS INTO PERSPECTIVE
Posted on April 23 2020
I miss my family members that I’m unable to see at the moment. I miss my friends that I’m used to seeing regularly. The list could go on.
I think we can all accept now that the world won’t ever be the same post COVID-19.
One thing I wish for after this pandemic, is for everyone to really appreciate what they have in life.
Isolation has been a time for everyone to condense their lives. Most of us are now working from home, not able to see family and friends and are now even restricted from going to the shops.
When all the bans and rules regarding COVID-19 are lifted and we’re allowed to go back to our normal lives, I plan to appreciate the finer things in life that sometimes I’ve taken for granted in the past.
It sounds silly, but driving I miss. I love to drive. Listening to a podcast or belting out some Whitney Houston is what I do whilst I drive. Whether it’s my 10-minute drive to work or an hour drive to the city to see some of my friends.
I also think that my relationships with my friends and family will be even stronger when we’re allowed to all see each other again.
And I hope everyone does the same. When we go back to normality (or as normal as possible), it is down to us as individuals to make sure we lift others who still may be struggling and keep in regular contact with our loved ones.
Yes, I should currently be in a London pub with my best friend halfway through our trip. Europe will always be there. We are lucky enough that we are able to afford to reschedule our trip and go another time.
We are also so fortunate to have mobile phones that despite the fact we aren’t sipping on Aperol Spritzes in Europe, we are still able to have a glass of wine over FaceTime in the comfort of our own homes.
We are all so lucky to currently have our health, to be surrounded by amazing people in our lives and be able to have a smile on our face.
I hope you’re all staying healthy and safe.
