You know what the scary thing is?
I actually have gotten used to this.
Even though this was boring as hell and horribly monotonous at times… I got used to it.
I got used to having no plans. Not seeing any people, except for the random school Mum I would bump into at the supermarket, and then other one who I would see when her daughter and baby girl had a play in the park.
I got used to not looking forward to anything. The expectation was set to the lowest bar, and yet still through the zero expectation I somehow still felt sad at the end of a Sunday, knowing the week would start again…
But nothing would change.
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday all the same.
But I realise tonight, that these are the last couple of days before it all gets chaotic. Appointments and classes are back on. Catch-ups are being marked in the calendar.
Getting out of the house won’t just be a luxury, it’ll be our new expectancy of life.
Do I seem sad? Hell no. I’m so happy and excited and I can’t wait to get back out into the sunshine with my freedoms and my loved ones, doing whatever the hell I please.
But I guess I’m already missing the demise of those quiet days where we did nothing, knowing that we will be on the go and out of the house every chance we get.
And that makes me think that we need to change things. Take a little of what we learnt in lockdown and remember that it’s ok to stay home sometimes, say no, chill and relax.
It’s weird the clarity you get on life, when you are suddenly given what you’ve been wanting, right?
How are you feeling as we exit lockdown?
