I think we can all agree that lockdown is draining now, as we approach almost one year of living through such uncertainty, I know I'm not the only one facing obstacle after obstacle and setback after setback. But ever the optimist, I am learning how fucking resilient I can be. One of my favourite songs 'Who We Are' by Welshly Arms lyrics go "let's start a fire,
let's pull this trigger, 'cause all these bruises, make our skin thicker". I just love that line because it's so true, all the hurdles life has ever thrown is what has enabled me to just get back up, continue lighting fires, working hard and progressing in other areas. That being said, I miss Olivia adventures a lot.
I shared poem by Rumi on my Instagram that I'd come across in a similar vein which goes like this:
This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.
