Hi lovelies, hope you all are keeping yourself and others safe in these difficult times.
I had to write this particular blog. It is unlike my other blogs which are fun, funny and light-hearted. You may find this one a bit serious as compared to them, but like I said, I just had to write it.
The last few weeks have been challenging for the whole world. No one has been spared by the Coronavirus. No one. Not even the Prince. It has invaded our lives, conversations, mindspace and physical space.
As I practice self isolation, I have had plenty of time to reflect on lots of aspects of my daily life.
So here I am, sharing a few lessons from this calamity that has befallen us all. The idea behind this share is that maybe some of you resonate with this.
HERE IS WHAT THIS VIRUS IS TEACHING ME DAILY:
- Celebrate each day, wear the damn cocktail dress: This is the loudest message I keep getting throughout the day. Allow me to tell you what I am getting at. I have so many dresses hanging in my cupboard, which I always say to myself “I will wear this the day we celebrate my mom’s bday’. Or “I will wear this at my next couple kitty party”. So many beautiful dresses which are just waiting to be worn on a “special day”. Or on a day of “celebration”. Well who knows for sure when that will be happening? Before the perfect occasion came, the Coronavirus came and the rest is well not history, but history in the making for sure.
2. Strap on those gorgeous sandals: The story is the same with my footwear. High heels, low heels, kitten heels, wedge heels, all of them are just standing tall and pretty in the cupboard waiting to be worn on a “special occasion” or a “perfect day”. My golden, strappy sandals, that are my favorite pair. I will love to wear them everyday but everytime I take them out to wear, I convince myself to keep them for a “special day” and put them back on the shoe shelf. Well, what is this “special day”? When will it come? The white, summer wedge sandals that make heads turn everytime I wear them have now turned Ecru yet I keep saving them for a “perfect day”. That day comes around rarely and the Coronavirus is a reality now.
3. Get the pretty jewellery out: Rows and rows of earrings, lying neatly in my jewellery drawers. Shiny, sparkly, beautiful baubles, pretty pearls, that make me happy just seeing them. “I will wear them to the new club when I go next Saturday”. Guess what? The Coronavirus came before the next Saturday. “Oh! this one is too pretty to be worn on a regular day”. How I crave those regular days now. The story is the same for silver necklaces, pretty link chains and vintage pendants. “I will wear this on that day”. “This piece is perfect for so and so day”. “Today is nothing special so let me save it for a special day”.
Yes…. that thought has come to my mind so many times.
TODAY IS NOTHING SPECIAL.
TODAY IS A REGULAR DAY. NOTHING SPECIAL.
Well, I am now realizing that those days were pretty special. Each one of those days. They were precious. The world was not scared like this. Things were going on smoothly. Life was actually pretty great.
THOSE DAYS WERE SPECIAL.
EACH DAY WAS A SPECIAL OCCASION. JUST BECAUSE IT WAS A REGULAR DAY.
Those were days that deserved to be celebrated. They deserved my best. They deserved my gratitude.
And not just our material things the same analogy applies to all other aspect of our lives.
Today is the perfect day to tell my husband one more time that I love him. To kiss my kids longer and harder. To call a friend I have fallen out with. To forgive someone who hurt me.
TODAY IS A PRETTY DARN SPECIAL DAY.
