I’m struggling with this new normal.
At times I’m fine and getting on with my life – such as it is. At other times I’m sad for no particular reason – just feeling sad.
Life has changed. I didn’t choose this. I can’t control this. And I don’t know what the world will look like when it’s over. At least before this pandemic I had the illusion of some control – and a steady supply of toilet paper!
And to top it all off, I’m feeling fairly useless. Sure, I’m doing my part by staying away from others and following all the social distancing rules. And I’m sending out loving thoughts and gratitude every morning and night. But I’m not essential to society like health care workers and food providers.
Then a friend suggested that I could share my blog posts. People are online now more than ever and they are looking for positivity. So, in addition to writing new posts I will be sending out older posts that are relevant to the times. I hope you find them as helpful as I am.
When I reread this post – Stop Paddling – I realized it was exactly what I needed to hear. I can’t change the way life is right now but I can relax, put down my paddles, and go with the flow.
