Surviving on Lemon(aid)




Oh man, a few days into self-isolation and time is starting to stand still... I have to say, it hit me on day six. I feel tired, I have low energy and, despite not being alone, I feel a bit lonely. I've always been an introvert and a bit of a hermit, but something about this obligatory distancing is making it feel less appealing. I'm sticking to a daily routine and making sure to go for a walk outdoors at least once a day for fresh air, but I think the stress and uncertainty of the situation is making this newly-found routine a bit stagnant. 

It's crazy how much we take the liberty to do as we please for granted. It's the classic case of wanting the thing you can't have. I'd normally be happy putting around at home and not having any human contact, but now that I don't have a choice; it's getting old pretty quickly. Don't get me wrong, things could be so much worse than boredom and longing, but I don't think I'm the only one feeling this way. By putting it out there, I'm hoping to comfort others feeling the same and knowing that it's okay. It's all part of the process. Hang in there everyone; we're all in this together. I tried to cheer myself up a bit by wearing a lemon sweater and matching earrings. Trying really hard to make lemonade out of these lemons life gave us!
