Five minutes to write about it
What is normal?
My life has been so filled with unexpected changes that I've come to expect the unexpected, and the COVID-19 pandemic with its shelter in place mandate has only been one of those.
Just as I've gotten used to this new normal, things are about to change again. Restrictions are being gradually lifted, quarantine may soon be over, and then what? Will life go back to how it used to be? Do I really want it to?
What I've learned about myself is that even though my heart is happiest when I've encouraged another person, or made a difference in someone's life, I prefer doing so through solitary pursuits such as blogging, or sharing the photos I love to take.
Yes, I will be glad when the restrictions are lifted, and yes, I do look forward to coming and going as I please, but thanks to the doors Zoom and Livestream have opened for me, I don't see myself eager to join others in public places once again. I quite enjoy staying home.
