I Am Still Grateful!
I need to just observe now, not focus on the past and question why it happened and heighten my frustration and anger, not read through the projections and predictions and by giving these information too much value, raise my anxiety and fear. I just need to be observant for now, try to get out of this mental turmoil and look at the situation from outside without fear, judgment and prejudice and then I may realize that life will go on and it will prevail this pandemic regardless of how I feel about it now and I know everything will be ok. So I refuse to allow this condition to consume me, I deny this situation to define me and I certainly reject this turmoil to frighten me. Yes I can. It’s my choice to stay positive and still see the beauty of this life and go on. I may just need to focus on simple things in life that I used to go through them without much attention and see how important they are in my life, like a simple conversation with my wife, casual dinner at home with my family or lying down on the couch and watching TV. Yes I can still be grateful even in quarantine, taste the delicious homemade food, listen to the warm voice of my son chatting with his friends on the phone, look at my beautiful daughter studying and enjoy the company of my wife at home. Life goes on and I know everything will be ok. Of course, I have to be careful, act smart, follow the rules and help as much as I can but I still can enjoy the beauty of this life even in quarantine.
