In This Together

Perspective

Sometimes the challenging times in life gives you clarity and understanding of what is most important. We all live busy lives, and sometimes we need a little time out to slow down.

Amongst all the chaos is a strong message of unity even through social distancing. It has been emotionally moving and uplifting seeing the online community support, love and all the good there is in people.

Unknown

The unknown can be scary, and from my experience with my son, who has a rare chromosome disorder, we have lived with the unknown for quite some time. I no longer worry to the extent of when it was making me ill (when he was younger). You have to make life your own. That’s partly what my blog is about, finding the positives during the hardest times.

If you are finding the news on tv or social media overwhelming, please turn it off or come away from your phone. Go at your own pace and take care of yourself as mental health and wellbeing are a priority at this unprecedented time.

Alexa

With my son and me indoors during this time, I never saw Alexa as a family member until now. Sometimes she is rebellious like a kid. When I ask her to turn the volume down, she ignores me. If I had to guess Alexa’s age, I would say she’s in her teens.

Not Seeing My Boyfriend

My partner and I are making this long-distance relationship work during this temporary circumstance. We have been FaceTiming each other.

I challenged him to a dance-off, and he kindly accepted. (the idea is to be silly and cheer each other up).

The House of Soul

As I’m dancing around the flat in the privacy of my own home, I realise that I can dance however I want to. No one can see me. (apart from my son)

Music brings back so many fun memories. I remember my dad washing up the dishes as he would dance along while listening to some reggae music. I grew up in a household listening to Motown music, a lot of Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley and 50s & 60s rock n roll. Music heals the soul.

Remember to find some time to be silly and dance along to your favourite music.

Dance on!
