Things I Took for Granted Before Covid-19

As part of my process of keeping positive, I’m focusing on things that I need to be grateful for especially during this time. My mind has this way of doing its own thing so instead of coming up with things I am grateful for, it has led me to jot this short list of things that I used to take for granted. Here’s to hoping you can also see that silver lining and when this pandemic is over, we all emerge as somewhat better versions of ourselves:

๐˜๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜จ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ ๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ด โ€“ Iโ€™m regretting all the plans Iโ€™ve cancelled or refused in the past just because I was too lazy to get dressed and leave the house. Too often I passed on opportunities to get out and mingle and convinced myself because I work a lot, I need to stay home as much as possible. I’m going to ensure that at least once per month I get out and hang with my team. Brunch with Mimosas!


๐˜”๐˜บ ๐˜๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ โ€“ If itโ€™s one thing this virus is teaching us is the basics of hygienic habits. Itโ€™s also reminding us to take care of our bodies and not take it for granted. I’ve actually started working out with this extra time and I am so grateful that my body allows me to do so.


๐˜–๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜บ โ€“ I never think about how fortunate I am that I can stay in the comfort of my home, feel for a hot, cheesy pizza, turn to my laptop and order one to be delivered directly to me in under an hour! I will never take for granted again my home, my laptop, my wifi, and the ability to afford all of this, as I know that for many these were never a reality.


๐˜›๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ โ€“ Travelling is my detox – and I try to detox every couple of months. And as much as I know I am fortunate to be able to do so, I have taken for granted the fact that for the past 10 years I’ve always had a trip planned to look forward to and a recent trip I can reminisce about. I am ever so thankful for a job that allows me the flexibility to do so.


๐˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ด โ€“ My husband and I eat out or order delivery a lot. However, during this time of quarantine and with a newborn, I am ever so grateful to be with my parents and get a delicious home-cooked meal EVERY day! As much as I miss take-out, nothing compares to meals prepared with love. And I’m learning a couple of new dishes to try out when I do leave this cozy haven and head back to my own abode.

This is a shortlist written at night and by no means is this exhaustive but I hope it has given you something to think about.

XOXO

Nikki
