This country has been on quarantine for months! Many states are starting phases to open nonessential business back up. For some, – not me – this means that quarantine is over. There have already been many photos on social media of people gathering in large numbers at public parks and beaches.
Being on quarantine can be hard. You are not able to complete your regular routines; you are working from home or not at all; you are stuck in one place for most of the day, and the news and social media sites are continuously talking about the pandemic and how crazy it is.
While quarantine was stressful for me, it made me realized how grateful I am for certain things. Things I may not have been so thankful for if it wasn’t for this pandemic.
My Loved Ones
I want to start this section by showing love and appreciation to my boyfriend, Josh. Most of my family is in SC, and anyone who knows me knows how much my family means to me. It is hard not seeing them as much as I would like. I live alone and have been working from home as well, so I would have had almost no human if it were not for him. He has been amazing during this time. He has been understanding of needs, comforted me when my anxiety is high, and has just been the best boyfriend. I love him so much.
Speaking of family, I have tried to keep up with them as much as I can during the pandemic. We have been on FaceTime, called, text, and had zoom meetings and gatherings. I went to visit them for Mother’s Day and had a fantastic time. Every moment with them is precious.
I have also had zoom gathers and facetime parties with my friends. Most of them have involved drinking but if we are having fun who cares.
While my job does get on my nerves sometimes, I am very grateful that I have a position that I can work from home and continue to receive a paycheck. I have seen and know many people who have not been so blessed.
I have not wanted for anything during this pandemic. I am so grateful for all these blessings and will not take them for granted. This pandemic has reminded me to find the good in every little thing, and I will take that gem with me when the quarantine is over.
