So, here we are going through the 3rd lockdown in just over a year. People are tired of businesses closing, and we are becoming very lonely, full of anxiety and sadness. I think the hardest thing we are dealing with is missing our loved ones. We haven't seen our family or friends in ages and it is definitely taking its toll.
The other day while working from home once again, I walked to our mailbox which has become my daily routine of excitement. I saw that the "red arm" was up which meant that something was there....most likely bills. Nonetheless, I made my way to open it up and see what was there. To my absolute surprise, I pulled out the most amazing friendship postcard sent from one of my best friends. Along with the truly heartfelt note she wrote to me, I was so honored to read the message on the front. Here we are, worrying about the fact that we aren't seeing our loved ones and I was given a very clear reminder that reaching out doesn't necessarily mean physically seeing each other. With this one, simple gesture, we were able to reconnect immediately and I was so grateful for this gift of love.
Judging yourself is taking the easy route, it's working through it that makes you strong.
