Quarantine Time- On Resilience

:the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness. πŸ€“

Hi there! It’s been a while since I last wrote and due to the unfortunate events it feels like forever. You know me, I need time to process life and it’s been a tough period as I believe for all of us. Keeping a diary though and started my second notebook πŸ“’ β˜•οΈ β˜€οΈ

I am now writing from my windowless cabin on the ship that became my home for almost two months now. Haven’t gone out for one month though and honestly speaking I miss stepping on land, especially on grass. ( and the trees, and the birds, and the flowers well you get the picture)🀯

Being in quarantine on a ship has its ups and downs however just the same as everyone, you really reach a point when it’s all a matter of attitude. You forget the world situation- you become selfish and the child within starts whining and complaining and demanding. Because you have to be honest- we are all used to a level of confort ( which is of course according to overall situation we are in at the moment. Maybe once home some have to face hunger yet while still here, basic food is nothing to worry about).

On top of that, we all want our families and loved ones around in this harsh situations. We all need warmth and a motherly voice that tells us it will turn out well ( imagine I dreamed I was hugging a dog and I woke up so charged with this wonderful, unconditional energy πŸ™‚

So yeah. In these conditions and now, Adding up the social distancing did not stop us from finding humanity in our rapport. Because yes, it is now when you see the person behind the rank, it is now you see how people cope with frustration, crisis and change. In spite of the difficulties, people will be people. It is not hard to find that we are all the same, have the same fears, same worries, same needs. And once you see that, you will see beyond the ordinary incidents, you will see that at the end of the day, we are all in this together, trying to deal with every day, with every change and turn of events.
( here we know nothing of when we leave- every day basically it could be THE day)

I practice gratefulness daily, I do journaling, meditate, run and still- at times I surprise myself of my thoughts, of this constant need to plan, to hold onto things, to dream, to even get what I want when I want it.

I was doing my journaling assignment today and the topic is β€˜ what are the lessons drawn from this past month?’

guess the answer here is resilience- I learned to actually be more mature, more realistic, to be more self sufficient, to be more aware, consume more mindfully and know through experience, once again, that it’s Us that decide what to make out of a situation. As they say- if you receive lemons, make a lemonade.

what are your lessons this past month ?

be safe – be mindful- be loving πŸ₯°

ps. Writing from my phone is not that bad after all πŸ™ƒπŸ™

  1. Hope you can stay positive during this trying time. Nancy and I are under a “stay at home” order, however that order has 14 noted exceptions and if one is actually caught doing something other than one of the 14 exceptions, that is usually overlooked, if minor in nature. We have wonderful neighbors who look out for one another. Since we are retired, our inconvenience is minor. After all this stay at home mess, we have only purchased 1 dinner out and that was through a drive-in window and taken home to eat. We are taking this time to downsize (reduce clutter) once again. As with some of your other friends, we are here to assist is needed and if we can. Thanks for being an internet “friend”. Enjoy seeing your pictures and reading your posts. Until next time, stay safe, keep 5 feet apart and wash your hands. Bye.
