They say a crisis is an immense opportunity for change. Whilst we are all in a different situation than normal; some with finally time to read a book, be at home, cook family meals and home school children. Others busier than ever, making sure our sick are treated, our food supplies are taken care of, our online orders are delivered. But in all some sort of awakening, in the line of, wait a minute.. what just happened?? And yes there is worry, about our loved ones, our health, about our economy.
When everything changes we realise that what we never imagined to be possible suddenly happens practically overnight, and I'm not only talking about dolphins swimming in crystal clear canals in Venice.
In the rush to return to normal, use this time to consider which parts of normal are worth rushing back to.
Which parts will you want to give more appreciation, attention, time and love. Which parts will you try to get rid of forever.
We harvested our first beetroots yesterday and whilst we face a rather grim financial scenario with no guests to welcome for the coming months, the feeling of abundance when we walk into our garden is joyously overwhelming. It goes far beyond having something to cook for dinner. It made us appreciate, more than ever, that going back to la tierra is where we'll stay.
