Although the virus is affecting many of us in so many different ways it's the first time in a long time (at least in my lifetime) that no matter what you have, be it all the riches or all the rags it has made us all wear the same plastic gloves, cover our mouths and behave like beasts at the supermarkets. It truly is the biggest leveller. (okay, those with money can pay for the test but thats all they are doing too is self isolating).
Which brings me on to why I came to this epiphany; like many of us a few days ago I was consumed with how it was going to impact my business, my lively hood, the economy; basically just thinking about myself and did not really give a thought to how this has impacted others on a far larger scale, people have lost loved ones!! I mean why I was I panicking over some money I had lost and the fact that I have lots of products that are stuck in Belgium are all temporary. I think because we have lived in a society where the future is always certain we have forgotten to live in the moment and just deal, appreciate and be happy in that moment. Right now I have what I always wanted really, I am sitting in my Flat just done yoga, drinking tea in my lounge wear and have time to do all the things that I claim that I don't have time to do....so I am just going to do exactly that. Release the worries of the future for now and live in the moment.
Of course, I am still going to have little panics now and again but for the most part I am going to breath and let it go (and also do a dance for every order, review, comment, post I receive) - Thank you to you all x
