One of the best things that came out of Covid, is it made me all appreciate things a little more.
Things were taken for granted not because they weren’t important but because they were always there. It wasn’t until we couldn’t socialize like we were used to that these moments became so much more special— brunch, celebrations, gatherings with friends, time with family, etc. When the world paused back in March, all we had was little moments with the people we lived with.
Playing in the backyard, running through sprinklers, throwing a ball back and forth, riding bikes, playing with makeup, is all we have had for the last 6 months.
I know for us, we have been doing our best to make the most of our time together. But it’s the little things that keep me going.
Seeing a friend at the supermarket after not seeing eachother for months.
Going on a hike and seeing a person you don’t live with, or even know. Just a wave from another person brings a smile.
Getting Starbucks after 6 months to enjoy the Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Meeting a friend for a walk.
Running into a neighbor getting mail.
If you are living a Covid life, the small moments seem few and far between but they are there. Take the time and let them sink-in. Breath the air with a friend. Remember you are not alone in this. Enjoy these moments.
At the end of this, when life can (hopefully) go back to normal, the thing I hope to take from this is to live in the moment. Enjoy every second. And most important don’t let the small stuff ruin something. What do you hope to take away from this period in our lives?
Are you living more in the moment? If so, how are you accomplishing that? Please share! Let’s help each other.
