Social Distancing Memoir

Updated: Nov 15, 2020

One day this will all be a distant memory.

I can’t lie I feel like this season was made for me and I am at peace.

I’ve been a busybody for so long, but is a time where I can just BE.

The world is so LOUD and now it’s not.

I’ve learnt to enjoy my own company again and it’s increased my level of self awareness. I’m learning what truly makes me happy.

I’m practicing self care and realising that self care isn’t selfish.

Im not interested in being part of the collective, I would rather be an individual. I wasn’t born to be a perfect person. I was born to be me.

Before this whole epidemic I felt like I was always in a hurry- rushing here- rushing there. I don’t even know why I was in such a hurry to get to a destination unknown.

Proverbs 20:24 Says:

The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?

It’s almost like being a child again because you really have to depend on God.

And it’s almost like the human race have been given a level playing field as we have all been dealt with the same cards right now and are just trying to make the most of it. There’s no one to subconsciously compete with but the version of myself I was yesterday.

I realise that I don’t need to dance to everybody’s beat- I can take my time.

I also realise that I don’t need others as much as I need Gods presence.

Embrace this season.

Feed your faith not your fear.

If the news is too much turn off the TV and open up your bible.

I’ll leave you with this.

The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. … And the God of peace will be with you. Phillipians 4:5-7.

Shalom
