Today was the first time that I went to run some errands and I did not panic. For the past six months I have been focusing on staying healthy for myself and for my family. At first I thought things will change sooner but then I realised that 2020 had been turned upside down. This time it forced most of us to slow down and evaluate our lives. A lot of us have taken this lockdown as a way of paving new ways of living as well as reminding us what is important and what is not. I have spent most of my time during this pandemic, especially during lockdown focusing on self-care, spirituality and mental health. The bonus was being reminded how my life as a Black person mattered, thanks to BLM movement. Going back to the opening of this blog, today’s errands run seemed normal. Even though it felt normal there were still aspects of this pandemic that I had to stick too, like wearing a mask, keep to social distancing, carrying the hand gel and finally washing my hands when I got home. It is hard not to think about when will life go back to normal. But if I am honest with you guys I doubt things will ever be the same again. I am also trying not to overthink about sending my kids back to school next week. Today gave me back hope that things will some day return to normal and we can all do things that we love without being restricted. We can travel without worrying about catching something or having to self quarantine. How have you guys been copying?
