“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” ~ Dolly Parton
Can’t you just hear Dolly’s voice when you read that ?! 😀 But that is so very true. Not that you have a choice though…
I think, how you handle the rain, while you wait for the rainbow to appear, is actually the important issue.
Like now, being in lockdown, or not being able to see your family, or whatever the situation in your country is – how to handle it, that is the question. I know a lot of people find these unusual circumstances emotionally and mentally difficult to handle, but even if you don’t, how are you managing it?
Are you just lounging around waiting for things to get back to normal, and actually enjoying all the time off? Are you using the time to learn new skills – baking, sewing, studying? Have you found a new passion? Has this event completely changed your life?
I wrote a post on what I discovered about myself a few days ago (you can have a look at it here) but as far as the above goes, I’m a bit of a mix of the lot – I enjoy lounging around, I’ve tried a few new things and still have some on my list, and I did a bit of studying (politics, if you please!) I wish I could say that this is going to change my life dramatically, but I honestly don’t think it will. I live a low profile life – I enjoy doing domestic things like cooking and knitting, I don’t like waste, and I try to live in such a way that I don’t partake in anything that can damage the ecosystem and Mother Earth.
A paragon of virtue? No, I’m not. Far from it, but at least I try in my small way…
Stay safe, stay healthy until next time! 🙂
