Thanks for popping in. Bank Holiday Monday? Who for? The banks are closed, 7 million furloughed people are at home anyway, many millions more work from home. So Bank Holiday Monday. Mmm. I’ve worked all day anyway, because this Monday is just like any other to me.
Shift happens, doesn’t it. The goal posts move, the lines get blurred. The rules change, the focus moves in and out. Nothing stands still. Shift usually happens gradually, almost surreptitiously. We barely notice it a day at a time. Until of course, you are slammed with a global pandemic, which creates a massive and instant shift.
Now more than ever, we need a routine. Well I do. I have to know where I’m headed. I am not clairvoyant, and I can’t predict the future, but I can decide when to get up, what to wear, where to take us all on this week’s virtual Doodle-Shack trip – I CAN DO THOSE THINGS, and many more, so I make a list and I work my way though it.
I have switched off from the politics of it all. It disgusts me. Whilst we are still losing hundreds of people to the pandemic daily, the finger pointing, wouldacouldashoulda second guessers are posturing and deflecting. It makes me wild, so I choose not to let them live rent-free in my head. There are enough in there already!
Yes. Shift happens. When I compare my life today with my life 6 years ago, or 6 months ago, it has changed dramatically. And not all for the worse. Now I just need to grow into my new situation and make the most of it.
How about you?
Time to go for a walk in the sunshine.
