I’ve started at least half a dozen blog posts and never finished any of them. Have you ever heard that the less you do, the less you want to do? That would be me right now. I’m bored and so I let different means of entertainment be my constant companion. Food has been my next “go to” because as I’m being entertained I definitely need some nourishment (she says with a frown). Doing the same things day after day is not good for me.
On most of the different personality and temperament tests I’ve taken, I am extremely extroverted. Because of the amount of stress I was under toward the end of the year last year, I was to the place that I needed alone time for healing. As I was starting to come out of that depression and stress, the pandemic hit. Now, I have so much alone time that I’m not sure I’ll ever need any more after this ends. Being alone this much is not good for my personality, I already spend most of my time in my head so the distraction of people can be healthy for me. I need people, I’ve never realized it to the degree that I have over the past four months. I need hugs, I get energy from hugs and my body is missing that. I’m not even sure that it will ever get back to the place that we hug when we meet up somewhere.
This life is changing and so am I. I’m learning to be still with God and I think I am further along than I’ve ever been, but I really do miss humans. The apps that we use to see each other’s faces is really great and I feel privileged live in this season of technology. That being said, it isn’t the same. I’m praying we get back to life soon! I hope you are finding ways to cope during this time of quarantine and learning to spend time in the presence of God, being still. God bless!
