Hey there, hope that wherever you are you feel safe and good. ♡
Today I woke up, a new year ahead. And today the president of our country was tested positive for covid.
I talked to my best friend today, took my guitar classes again now that my wrist has healed. And this was the first time since March, that I felt sadness around her. She’s always so uplifting and shiny.
Of course she has bad days has every human has, but I couldn’t do anything to relief her sadness. Things get complicated and this year has been so challenging and I think the end of the year still has A LOT to give us.
I have tried to tell everyone that’s struggling of sadness, depression, anxiety or other mental and emotional problems that: THIS TOO SHALL PASS. We have to, we need to, keep fighting and standing strong together.
I don’t know how long all of this is going to take, I believe (deep inside not kidding you) that actually, there’s no way back, new normality? Really? Before all this, everything was normal? Really????
I strongly feel that a lot of this came to wake humanity. Shake all of us. Deeply. Truly. Fully. And if it hasn’t yet, it will.
I don’t mean to be pessimistic, or negative. I try to open my eyes, mind and heart, to reality. And for a few months I have been greaving. I’ve cried myself to sleep so many times, I have cried for days, no end, because of all that is happening. This IS change. And even if it’s unpleasant, it came to stay. We need to endure this.
I know we will it’s just the work between the beginning and the end, that makes us all feel hopeless. But I have a very good quote for this:
“It’s like the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn’t want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad has happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines, it’ll shine out the clearer. I know now folks in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding on to something. That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it’s worth fighting for.”- LOTR ♡
So, we need to keep going. Bye bye for now.
Love, Calu R.
