However it’s coming to us, we’re all being given cocoon time here. Don’t look back after this experience, and wish that you had done more with the time you’ve been given.
They say the five stages of Spring, 2020 are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
That’s a little joke.
But it has been a wild ride, hasn’t it? While I wouldn’t go so far as to call the required self-isolation a gift, I do believe that we should try to learn something from difficult experiences.
I should pause here to tell you that this is not a guilt-trip to make you feel badly that you are staying in the bathroom extra long to get away from your kids or using chocolate as a coping mechanism. Both are valid responses to what we’re going through, in my opinion.
All I hope to do is be a little encouraging bird on your shoulder reminding you of what you already know:
You may look back after this experience, and wish that you had done more with the time you’ve been given.
