It’s the middle of 2020 and everything feels surreal. Days are both hazy and blurred. While months seem to be hurrying ahead, seconds are taking an excruciatingly amount of time to live through. Suffice it to say, we are currently undergoing unprecedented times. No arguments there.
I’m sure this feeling of depression, hopelessness, despair, ennui and an all round negativity has been getting to each and every one of us. While most countries are still firmly in the grip of the pandemic, the bigger challenge lies in the road to recovery ahead. The new normal, as people call it, is far from normal or comfortable. But it is unavoidable.
So today, I want to put it out there that even though I’m nowhere ready, mentally or emotionally, to feel positive, I vow to begin the process of healing myself. Counting my blessings, more than usual. Being receptive to the struggles faced by other people. Being kinder. Being more loving. Giving more, expecting less.
Easier said than done. But trying is an important part of the process. Without healing our hearts and souls, there’ll be no recovery.
Ready or not, I’m taking the plunge! Are you with me? Because today is when we need to stand together more than ever.
Here’s to sending little doses of positivity out into the world ❤️
