The Distancing Diaries

I wanted to take this time to just reflect on what this period of quarantine has been like. When you’re someone who has anxiety it’s hard to just cover up over thinking and adjusting to a time like this tbh. For me personally, it’s being a time of reflection and re-evaluation. Taking a step back and reflecting on life. I am hoping to continue with being present and honest with myself and my feelings even when life goes back to normal. For sure you learn a lot in stillness and I’ve appreciated the calm and time to reset. During this period I’ve also realized that things that one may perceive as important or needs urgency and attention is really not the bigger picture in life. It’s like gaining some extra bandwidth to paying attention to all those ideas that have whispered in the back of my mind. My priorities have shifted to seeing what matters most to me and thoughts I should consider bringing to life. So, think about where you were this time last year. Think about the things that used to worry you so much that no longer consume your mind and time: the relationship that wasn’t healthy, the things you thought you could not carry out but did. Continue to be open to receiving what you forgot to ask for. You’ve come so far, keep going.

What part out of this quarantine is one continuing once its over? Have your priorities shifted?
