New Reality

Every day I watch the lines on local and international news. People waiting for what seems like hours on end just to get food and household supplies. Today I experienced it for the first time. I waited for an hour at the bakery just to get bread. The traffic was almost nonexistent on what is usually a busy Saturday. All of my neighbours look like they have aged a little in the past couple of weeks. People side eyeing anyone with the slightest of coughs.

Never in my life did I think I would see this, experience this, and never did I think that I would I have been laid off after surviving at a company through everything else for 14 years.

I am trying not to be fearful of this new reality. To trust the process and just be ready for when the curfew lifts and I can actively return to work, that I am ready. That I have kept my skills sharp, maybe learned some new ones, and rested my weary body.

I did not realise just how burnt out I was until I was forced to stay home and do nothing. This quarantine is really forcing a lot of people to reevaluate their lifestyles and choices, myself included.

All I can do at this point is have faith that everything be okay eventually.
