Time Just Feels strange In 2020
The days seem to be passing so quickly, and I can’t be the only one who has actually confused my own brain on what day it actually is. The global coronavirus pandemic has changed our perception of time and changed our lives.
Over the last few months, I’m sure we have all just tried to keep busy and keep some routine, I wonder how many time our houses have been cleaned and gardens arranged just to stay sane.
How did we get to July I feel like four months have just whizzed by, and we are now five months away from Christmas. Now the world is slowly getting back to normal, and the pubs and restaurants are now open and shops. Am the only person thinking why are people not wearing masks and gloves, not that I have mixed with a lot of humans yet as I am awaiting surgery and not taking no risks?
Even going into the doctors, I was armed with gloves, mask, antibacterial spray, my anxiety levels was through the roof thinking what if I catch something just being near the nurse, what happens if the machines haven’t been wiped down properly, an ECG machine has a lot of wires! I must praise them as it was one in and one out and we had to stay in our cars till we were called which was fine by me.
Time has passed unnaturally quickly, and everything feels weird. Still, the past few weeks have been the perfect time to put everything into perspective, and I wonder how many of us started a new project or took up a new hobby or have even now got a completely new outlook on life.
With so many of taking to social media, think of the friendships what have been made in corona time. All the apps we thought we would never end up on not mentioning TikTok here and wasting hours just watching the latest dance moves… yes, I’m guilty of this!
This coronavirus lockdown has made me feel grateful for everything I already have and for the people what are around me. I have found showing gratitude helps to feel more positive emotions, I’m not saying you have to be a bubble of delight every minute, but if you can try and be positive it certainly helps.
I am a firm believer in what you put out is what you get back, so I am going to carry on doing what I’m doing and keep blasting my positivity out there, and if it helps just one person smile and feels better, then it’s all good.
I’m not perfect, never claimed to be but I can look in the mirror & respect the woman staring back at me…
