I am leaning on my windowsill and looking out my bedroom window with a glass of Carrot juice mixed with lemon, orange and Grapefruit. It is quite tasty you should try it. Ok back to why I am at my window. I just finished my Morning yoga flow and wanted to bring out my clothes before I go have my bath and then I heard the birds chirping.
I started wondering (wow) they are so loud! I started to ask myself, have I ever heard them so loud before? Which of the birds is chirping which way? Because they seem so many and their chirps were so loud and soothing like music to my ears. Why have I not heard them so intensive before? These are the questions that were running through my mind as I looked out my window.
You get what you focus on so focus on what you want
As I look out my window I realised for the first time that I am so still and everything around me is quiet. I am able to block out the noises of cars driving by and just concentrate on the birds and myself. Then I thought back and realised that practically all my life I have never been so still as the past month of this quarantine.
I have also come to realise in this time that life is really precious and you have to know what belongs to your heart and the people around you that you cherish and to know not only about their wellbeing but also their mental state of health.
Everyone has been thrown down a loop, everyone is at home trying to balance themselves and their businesses. Some are working from the comfort of their homes and others like myself are at home because their work has been halted due to this pandemic.
At the moment, I am trying to have a clear understanding of who I am, what I want, and what my foundation or core is and how I can build it in this period and after this period.
I hear all the time in this Pandemic that you have to build a skill or rather do something new for your self and I am like why not stay calm, do not overthink yourself but try and breathe in new air into your lungs and then the other things and skills will follow.
Currently everything is on a standstill and the time is not respecting anyone by standing still with us but rather flying by. You need to remember what is great about you, what your strengths are and where they lie. I mean this time you are taking out time for yourself to know yourself now, breathing in and out and knowing that no matter what you are passing through we will be fine later on.
We are in this together and as we go through this COVID-19, I chant to myself that I love to get through times like this because it will bring out the best in me, it will make me think clearly, learn myself well and also to care for my health and then try and help other people, my family, to call someone and check on them if they are well or rather write them to know how they are doing.
Do things in this period all day in a way that uniquely suits.
There is absolutely no need to Panic.
All these have taught me that life is really precious and should not be toiled with: Yes, we are humans but there are things powerful than us. If a virus can shut the whole world down!!! what cannot?
I wish you all well and would love to hear from you and how you are going through with Quarantine, what is helping you keep sane.
