I don't recommend getting sick at the outset of a global pandemic-- especially not maybe WITH the pandemic (still no test results, is a travesty, etc)-- but I WILL say, it provides excellent perspective.
I am so happy to be breathing well and smelling things and seeing my family again that none of the things that would usually annoy me about all of us being in the house together are annoying in the slightest. Well, maybe like a little annoying, but mostly I am just happy to be in our little bubble, working our asses off, and trying to game the grocery delivery system so we never have to go to the actual store.
BUT. I have been sucked into social media BIG TIME lately. I have also noticed that I am not appreciating the moment as much as I claim to want to. For the, my happiness canary in a coal mine is not taking pictures, and there have been days without pictures, which leads me to screw up my Instagram 366 project, etc. (see look at how delightfully trivial my problems are!)
SO. This week, I have 3 goals:
1. Read 7 books
2. Limit social media to 1 hour a day. My screen time is like 5 freaking hours a day, and I am always stuck in the scroll.
3. NAP MORE
My afternoon walks (where I see NO ONE and catch up on podcasts) are a huge happiness highlight for me.
