Pandemic life changes – the world changed in an instant
No sarcasm intended (honestly), but I truly hope this post ‘finds you well’, healthy and still possessing some spark and zest for life; and if not, then I’m wishing and praying things get brighter for you from here on. 💛x
Without spelling it all out, we all know last year unfolded in a way none of us had ever anticipated, like an unwelcome ‘jack in the box’ for the most part! 🎢
Journalling the ongoing rollercoaster of events is going to make for some pretty interesting reading in future history books, that’s for sure! 📚
Like a swift relay race, 2021 continues on where 2020 left off, the pace hasn’t really slowed down and new notions of ‘normal’ seem to be evolving each day.
Bloggers have written about all this to no end, understandably, it’s unprecedented, and many of you have shared insights into how your lives have changed personally, in good ways and the ‘not so good’. 🤔
Some have suffered irreparably, with businesses or loved one’s lost – my heart goes out to you.
Other’s have been more fortunate and found blessings in disguise. ✨
Then there are those of us who are still processing what’s happened and what might lay ahead, reflecting on how our priorities have changed, and how we want to try and shape our lives, moving forward.
Cliches aside, ‘the meaning of life’ is becoming an ever more popular philosophical question.
Life changing decisions
Some of you have already made firm conclusions on the above and acted on them – making firm pandemic life changes – life changing decisions or interesting u-turns in your everyday lives, e.g:
- Made big changes to your diet and fitness
- Changed career, quit a job, or seeking a new job
- Lost or strengthened existing relationships (family/partners/friends)
- Moved house to another part of the country or another country altogether
- Gained or strengthened your spiritual beliefs
- Changed your political views in some way
- Committed to stopping or starting to do certain things differently
Sometimes it takes unavoidable and unexpected significant events to push us into making new life changing decisions.
Has the pandemic led to any new life changing decisions for you?
Maybe nothing major has changed for you, and that’s fine, I’m not trying to say it should or shouldn’t, each of us will react and feel differently about things and we’re fully entitled to.
But if things have changed for you…..💫
If you’re willing to share below – I’m curious to hear more examples of changes you have made, or thinking of making, in light of this seemingly new world we’ve entered into. 🌍
It’s interesting and often inspiring to hear these, and may offer reassurances to others who are grappling with similar thoughts and pandemic life changes.
Tell us in the comments – there’s no right or wrong, just whatever it is for you….
