Lockdown has surprised me about myself. There has never been a dull moment from when I wake up until I retire in the evening.
I am grateful for being healthy and cheerful to myself. I have a pile of books I meant to read for a wrong reason, when I am bored. However, I am still reading the book that is me.
It is a bonus to have time to myself and not be woken by the alarm at 4:30 to be at gym for the 5:00 training. I exercise at home at my pace. I have even counted the steps in the house, sixteen steps. I climb 10 x16 =160 steps and break a sweat as I warm up. I am grateful for this discipline and that my body is still strong and healthy.
I have been doing and enjoying simple things in the house. I think I can run an efficient laundromat and restaurant that serves healthy vegetarian dishes.
It is critical that we be reconciled to being aware of the environment. I have become very passionate about sharing photographs of scenes that catch my eye.
I am also grateful that I have had time to trace and connect with friends I had lost contact with because of a busy lifestyle. The longing to reconnect with them has saved me the regret of not telling them how treasured they have been to my life.
As I continue to read the book that is me, I find it very interesting. Thanks to lockdown.
