A new day has arrived, it’s Thursday. With this quarantine going on lately, I can barely feel the days passing, as I am living a feeling that every day is the same one and the time is lost in an hourglass, which keeps turning around moving the sand.
God allows me to wake up every day joyful though, filled with energy and happy to start another day. I move from the bed, freshen up, make a coffee, pet the cat and start working again.
I get to move the curtain, see the new light of the day, the risen sun but then when I throw my eyes on the street there is nobody, the path is empty. I don’t even see the stray cats or the gimp cute dog, Taz. All I can hear is silence, way too much silence.
I miss the view, the people, the atmosphere and mostly everything that made my day. It is funny how you can have it all and not be aware of it, treating it as it’s yours by the divine right, and then to simply lose it all in a moment.
Every day is filled with new people and new challenges at work, new voices and new problems to be resolved on the line. Every day appears to be different, but every day cannot be felt truly.
Customers are scared of this Virus Situation and it can be felt through their lack of patience, their incapability of resolving situations that appear easy on a first look. The network speed is poor as there are many persons out there trying to escape the quarantine at home.
To describe the situation in a few words, it’s a left-handed condition and at times I can feel like I had enough and that I want to give up. But then I remember why I started in the first place and have the hope that things will get better and we will overcome this storm that started against us.
That we are powerful and strong beings and that are capable of overcoming what challenges us at the moment, and that after this we will become more mature and able to face life and it’s ups and down’s with more courage and determination.
It’s being said that God only gives us what we can take, and never the things that are out of our power. Let’s remember that we are not alone in this life journey and always have God by our side. We are never alone.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is to know that we, our loved ones and the people around us are healthy and safe. And if being apart for now from them is what makes them better than it’s the least we can do.
As Meghan Daum said: „Distance is not for the fearful, it’s for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough.”
Let’s try to distance ourselves from the people around us for the moment, and be bold, letting the fear vanish. We will be able to cherish more the future times spent together in health when the situation will calm down together with the loved ones and the people around us.
Take care, stay safe and stay protected!
