Still locked up... or am I?

Locked up has now become the new normal for me. While I don’t have a traditional routine as I would pre-quarantine, I do have a routine nonetheless. It feels very caveman-like, as I’m eating when I’m hungry and sleeping when I’m tired with a bit of work and self-development dotted in between.

Acceptance has been key. I don’t want to be locked in but right now, I have come to terms and can confidently say that I am at peace with not being able to. I’m not alone as everyone’s on the same metaphorical boat. I accept that I cannot change this situation (in the short term at least) so I have accepted it and you know what? It’s ok. My world hasn’t imploded, I haven’t gone crazy (yet) and I’m still able to have fun.

My previous blog entry ended with me wondering whether I’d remember how to carry on with my life pre-quarantine. I don’t think I want to now. I want to think of this time as another period of evolution of my life. It’s just another challenge on the road to tomorrow. Perhaps when my choice is restored I will choose to stay in and appreciate the things closer to home (literally) a little bit more. I kind of like it here.
