Hello friends! I would like to share some of my thoughts on the pandemic situation we have come to find ourselves in!
In the beginning, I flip flopped in fear. Many of us did. Fear of uncertainty, fear of the unknown, and sad to see the world shut its doors and close down. I didn’t want to take a break, I had sparkling plans for starting a business and hosting workshops and events! Like everyone else, I was going to have to accept that the world does not revolve around our preferred timeline…
Everything happens for a reason. The pandemic is not just a random bloop. Nor is it just some crappy situation.
I believe the pandemic needs to happen for a reason that we may never begin to fully understand. Maybe we never will. That’s okay. As much as we like to be in control, it is time to accept that nature is mysteriously powerful. We need to follow it’s guided path and not despair.
I see so much beautiful kindness blooming from this time of change. The world is shifting within the closed doors. When it is time to open again, it will never quite be the same. We are starting to become more giving to strangers and remembering the true joy of human connection. People are remembering what is truly important to the experience of being alive. Familial bonds are strengthening. I notice my neighborhood is becoming like a big family. People are generously lending a helping hand. Neighbors are chatting over their garden fences and laughing in the sunshine. Everyone smiles because we know no one is alone, together we will get through this! Suddenly, it doesn’t seem so scary at all!
Nature is healing, the planet is recovering from our past abuse… People are becoming more in tune with nature. We can always turn to the great outdoors during times of quarantine. Suddenly people are inspired to starting their own gardens! More people are discovering how grounding mother nature can be during a time of stress. Spring’s lovely blooms are here to fill us with joy!
Even in the bleakest of situations, miracles are hiding around every corner. Expect the unexpected. Believe the unbelievable. Trust the unknown.
