What do you miss about the outside stuff? Or do you find the new set up beneficial somehow?
Like they always say we cannot predict what will happen. Next, no one knows what will happen, not even our instinct, and no one could save us from what may happen, not even our backup plans. When it happens, it happens, and that is the only time you can think of what you can do for that particular situation.
Due to this crisis that affects everyone’s life, there are also a lot of things taken from us because of this pandemic that challenge us. And it is not easy to go through some changes. We cannot have any assurance on what will happen next after specific changes, but one thing for sure we should do this particular change for the better.
So as you read this article about life we had before this pandemic, I am pretty sure you already miss those, but there is a better plan about the things we lost and missed.
It was under the sun for a short stroll outside, being exposed to the outside environment with the air winding in the leaves of all the trees. That used to be a good starter for us to begin our day, every ray of sunlight we feel that tells us that it is going to be a great day.
Seeing strangers walking pass by you on every street and pedestrian, you need to take a walk for every destination you need to get in. One of the scenarios outside that will surely change. We need to take distance to be safe and to save others.
We were eating outside, being outside one of the fun things you can do out and exploring and discovering different foods that will satisfy everybody’s cravings. Food is one of the best things that we can do outside, and it allows different people to be one and to bond and be together for a moment, this used to be one of the best relief after a tiring day.
You saw your friend, classmate, workmate or even your crush every day. Interactions, social gathering, small talks, and little get together with the people who make us feel safe and warm: laughs, dramas, and the fun moments you share.
These used to be the little things that we had, and now, we crave and miss after they were taken away from us. However, there are still a few things that we have now after losing something.
Being able to be in bed all-day, taking back all the energy we use when we are still working and need to prioritize essential things in our lives and forget to have some rest. Those sleepless nights we had to finish all the things we needed to do, we can now take back all the chances we missed to take some nap without hesitating to do it. Without any deadlines, we need to think before we close our eyes. Sleep with peace, a rest like never been before.
We are seeing and being with your family all day, one of the most significant benefits we had after losing and missing something outside. The time for the family that responsibilities and duties have taken away from us and we tend to not have enough time to give for our family, but now we have our whole 24 hours to be with them, to cherish moments and reminisce about some important events from the past. And to strengthen the bond of the family, during this kind of pandemic family is what we only have.
Finally getting your alone time, having a lot of roles to perform we forgot to have some time for ourselves to take care of it in any way we want to. Giving ourselves the peace it needs, we now have the time to be something we want before every role comes in our lives. We now have the chance to choose ourselves to do what it truly wants. Learning things, gaining back the passion we lost, and grabbing the opportunity that many reasons have taken away from us.
Finally doing the things you want and skills you want to learn, investing for your inner self and potentials. This is the opportunity to be better on the things you’re not, the season to be something, take something new and get out of your comfort zone. The chance to be healthier for the better and for the unpredictable things life could have.
These are now the little things that we currently have that we will crave and miss soon when this is all over. We only realize their value to us once they are taken away from us. During this time, let’s all be grateful for the little thing that we have and after this, let’s all be thankful for the things that we get to have.
Time flies fast; nothing is impossible to happen, start using and maximizing the time given to us. Enjoy and use it to the fullest, give yourself a chance during these days to be something new, something that you never had before. This is not about holdbacks anymore, and tomorrow is unknown. Grab it rather than you regret it.
This pandemic seems to be unfortunate and brings us a lot of negative thought about what it made our lives. But the thing is how we will make good things out of bad things that are happening. It is not about how to count, which is wrong and which is good. It is about how to live both concepts of life.
It is about you, to make things right for you and it is you to see what is bad for you, but the fact is there is no bad, and right it is you need to understand and realize the lesson it has. Even a storm brings great stories.
