In retrospect I spent November pulling back from social contact and not doing much of anything except my Thankful Thursday lists to help myself move forward. After months of pandemic restrictions and surgery recovery/rehab I guess I needed to quietly recharge. I am now officially bored by myself though.
While December will offer some respite for us if we follow through with our plans to see our children and grandchild after we all have quarantined ourselves I do think there is going to be at least a full year after that of continuing pandemic restrictions.
So I’ve begun thinking a lot about the paths to use to get to and through acceptance and on to action that can be taken to help keep me and my loved ones whole.
One small step yesterday when I emailed my nephew on his 40th birthday and mentioned that I missed him. He lives alone and although working from home emailed back quickly. As a result we are going to set up a Zoom call and reconnect. It is past time to do that with others but at least it is a start.
Please share any action plans that are helping you through this or that you are going to try soon.
