I had plans to start this blog with “It’s starting to sink in” and then I thought to myself, is it? Is this really starting to sink in? The answer is that I’m not really sure it is and that’s ok. Like most of us, I’m doing my best to take things day by day.
Those days are now structured around Morning Maths and an afternoon walk. We’re experiencing a rollercoaster of emotions but are fortunate to live in a home that makes us feel ‘safe’ and it’s this word, ‘safe’, that has been playing on my mind for a little while…( even before the “c” word as we’ve shortened it to in our house).
Last time I wrote a blog, I spoke about feeling “stuck” and reflecting on that I wondered, is it feeling stuck or feeling safe that can stop us from moving forward? I definitely think there is a fine line between feeling safe and feeling stuck, but they can both have the same effect of keeping us in the same place. I know right now, given the current situation that, there is nowhere I would rather be and that’s due to feeling safe and actually being stuck. However, this won’t always be the case.
I suppose we’ve got to get ‘comfortable’ with being ‘uncomfortable’. I stumbled upon this quote from Michelle Obama this morning which feels right to share in this post.
“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.” Michelle Obama.
Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you on the other side.
