This was such a nice time to talk, reflect, relax.

A friend posted a link to 6 Daily Questions to Ask Yourself in Quarantine.
It reminded me to practice gratitude and that it's okay that I feel out of sorts because the world is in a strange place right now.

She listened with patience as I shared that I was having a rough day.
She reminded me the power of presence and acceptance and teaches me to be more accepting of all of myself.

My 2 best friends stopped by with masks that fit great, and a hanging planter.
Now I can wear the masks comfortably. And enjoy the flowers on my balcony. Plus it was good to see them during this time of isolation.

My friend gave me three books during this quarantine (and I was not expecting it at ALL, because we are not very very very close).
This made me feel loved, because I know that this friend is worried with me spending the quarantine alone, so he wants to help.

My mother made me soup and dropped it off for me to have for lunch on a rainy day.
This made me feel loved, looked after, warm and full.

A councellor told me some hard truths.
After experiencing mental health issues for many year, receiving therapy for several years, this person suggested I was not unwell, and did have the tools to deal with come what may. It was hard to hear, but have me something to think about.

After a rough night sleep, I woke up in my warm home and made myself a delicious cup of coffee that I drank in the sun
It reminded me of how lucky I am to have a roof over my head, food at my disposal, and the luxury of time to enjoy it.

Glad to have made note of this man's Ted Talk years ago and just today viewed it again. The countenances of people he videoed presented towards the end touched me. Gratitude - Louie Schwatrzberg https://youtu.be/gXDMoiEkyuQ

I prepared a folder for my boss because of an appointment he had a day later. He thanked me for doing it.
I was surprised because he thanked me. I thought: Ok, this was my job preparing that folder with information; it is no big deal. But he appreciated it. And he noticed the work behind the preparing.

A few friends came over for a small cookout and brought a couple of dishes over.
We had fun together and I didn't have to make a full meal.

I felt so low on the weekend that I reached out for help from the American Red Cross to cope with the isolation. I completed their online course on coping in this pandemic.
It gave me strategies for staying connected with friends and family.

I received an e-mail to check in to my journal.
The journal nudges me to look deeper, beyond the weariness of a restless night, to see and feel the good - the privilege not earned but freely given. I am grateful
