Most of us are focussed on the key questions ‘when will this end?’ and ‘when can we get back to normal?’
We can none of us know what everything is going to look like after lockdown but it’s likely that things won’t be what they were before for some time to come.
What this time at home offers us is a unique chance to re-think how we live and maybe to STOP for ever those messages we give ourselves all the time about not being enough exactly as we are.
Every January I write about how important it is that we don’t beat ourselves up about those enormous changes that we tell ourselves we absolutely must make but, if a family quiz via Zoom wasn’t your thing before lockdown and if you would normally do anything to avoid online yoga or pilates, these aren’t going to be attractive propositions now.
Maybe some of us will come out of lockdown with new found cooking and baking skills, increased fitness and a brand new ability to play the violin. But, I’m guessing that most of us won’t. The majority of us will simply revert to our previous habits and baking banana bread and on-line fitness sessions won’t be high on our future list of priorities.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could go into the future with an acceptance of ourselves and everyone else that supports us for the rest of our lives?
