“Let’s get the best out of this season” or how to sum up my year 2020 in one sentence.
Once the confinement started, i had a pretty bad experience, because I was of those people who had not really taken this covid_19 story very very seriously, and so i found myself confined and seeing all my plans falling apart overnight was a bit like getting a slap (or three …) BUT this happened just in the beginning, because very quickly, I pulled myself together, and I said to myself that if I was going to spend as much time confined, it would not be to get up at 1 p.m. and spend my days binge watching on Netflix: I might as well make this confinement p-r-o-d-u-c-t-i-v-e, and use this time wisely!
Hence the reason for this article, because if I have managed to motivate myself, I’d like to reach out to someone who may not be able to. It is true that this season has had a lot of negative and even devastating consequences… But adopting the “let’s get the best out of this season” mindset could really help us get through this season and make it useful.
As for me, for example, in this time of seclusion and withdrawal, I have set myself challenges and things to accomplish in addition to the things I already do on a daily basis, things that normally I wouldn’t have time to do. Why is that ? Because I want to be able to take a step back when I return to a fully active life and say to myself “Yes we were confined and we were limited, but this is what this time has given me the opportunity to do.” And while everything (or almost everything) has come to a standstill, I choose to look at the opportunities that this season offers us and it would be a shame for each of us not to seize them!
So maybe for someone it’s an opportunity to do things that had been put aside due to a lack of time, for someone else it could be an opportunity to finish, to bring to fruition projects that had already been started or for someone else it could be just a time to stop, rest and take care of themselves. Whatever the case, I’m sure that each person, according to their life and their plans, is able to bring out the best in this season.
Looking forward to cheering you on for the rest of this historic season,
