“Time is a precious thing. The years teach much that the days never knew.” Shadows in the Sun
When we have the ability to look back on our lives, to reminisce on life, there are few people that can actually do this and honestly say that they have no regrets. In the moment of life, we are caught, wrapped up and surrounded by whatever has our attention at the moment. Work, projects, kids… It is very hard to balance it out so that everyone gets a far share of whatever it is to be expected. If we over give in one area, we under give in another. The demands of life are just crazy. Even the people now that are blessed enough to be able to work from home are still feeling the tug of the almighty schedule, others have had a break and some have found balance.
We cannot be everything all the time. When I get older, I want to look back and say, I half way figured this out in my forties. I want the people in my life that I love to know that I love them and can be available to them as much as possible. I want to enjoy vacations like normal people and just make the most out of the time I have left. There is so much that I want to do and bring to the table but we only have so much time. This time in quarantine has really changed my view of things and I know it is not very smart to travel any time soon, that will definitely be on my to do list.
How has this time changed your views?
Much Love 💜 Much Life
In answer to your question, I have come to appreciate my tai chi practice even more. It is something that I can feel successful striving in, under the present circumstances. Some people are getting very restless while I am more at peace then ever. In addition, I feel more aware that something like the corona virus can come out of nowhere to mess up your life or even end it. As a result I feel far more grateful that this disease has so far left me and the people closest to me alone. In fact I do not know anyone who has been hit directly by the disease. Nearly all will suffer some financial loss, but we have so far escape the worst. My heart goes out to those who are less fortunate.
I understand completely, this has been a very peaceful time for me as well. My heart goes got to the one that are not well. It is such a trying time for so many.
Thank you for reading and responding!
