Freedom is a Gift

The challenges of this quarantine… obviously the feeling of being “locked up”… of feeling stuck… realizing the freedom we take for granted isn’t that free after all.

Realizing everything we do (and don’t do) can impact someone’s health, including our own.

Health we also take for granted.

Seeing ourselves deprived of social contact… we’re social animals.

Online gatherings help. It’s not the same but it helps a lot!

The miracle of social media allowing us to actually stay connected and engage into virtual communities.

We are deprived of seeing our family and loved ones, our friends… deprived of stepping out for a coffee, to go to the beach, to the movies, for dinner and drinks… everything we take for granted.

It can be nerve recking.

Suddenly it’s all taken from us… for our higher good.

It can trigger a whole world of uneasy emotions.

And suddenly you need to learn to relax.

In an active or passive way. Or both.

And suddenly you can see what’s always been in front of you but you’ve never really seen it because you were always too busy doing something else and going somewhere else.

And now you can just sit still.

And See.

And Listen.

To the quiet.

To the peace.

Stop.

Look around.

Appreciate it for what it is.

We can actually allow it to linger and take our time.

It won’t happen again that soon once daily life resumes its regular pace, its regular needs.

These are tiny things… but big moments.

The ones that save you in times of crisis.

Find your refuge.

Take care of it and let it take care of you.

PS – it’s the moon, not the sun.💙🌕

Author: Love and Everyday Affairs

The idea behind this page is to share my opinion and experience in what seems to be a crazy world nowadays. I look at myself, my friends and acquaintances and hear so many different, yet similar stories… of our search for Love, disappointments, insights. I wanted to share them! Considering cultural differences some adjustments had to be made. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!
