So it’s been a little over a month now that I’ve been able to go back to work. So much has changed yet so much is still the same. I’ve wanted to blog a bit more and have a full post about my last trip to my hometown I want to publish but just haven’t had the time.
One thing I’ve noticed is how adapting to this covid way of life has been. It’s not easy. Maybe for some but not for all. In my experience I went from three months of absolute nothingness, feeling almost like a prisoner in my home to now being so busy at work some days I can barely think straight. Things have gone from one extreme to the next.
How do we cope and adapt? Even with the ability to work, we still don’t have our full freedom of movement. How do we stay happy and positive through all this? Happiness is a mindset. If we keep looking behind at the past months we feel like we’ve missed out on life and if we look to the future, the uncertainty is scary. All we can do is live in the present moment.
Learning not to dwell on the past and not worry about the future is the sweet spot for happiness. It’s not always easy to do but we must practice mindfulness and stay focused on each day as they come. Keeping in mind that nothing in life is permanent and one day, as quickly as this pandemic hit us it may just as easily disappear via vaccine. No one knows how and when but we do know it is not forever.
It’s been short and sweet but hope to help anyone in need of a pick me up during this time with positive thoughts.
