So after 2 years of working throughout a global pandemic I’m back to blogging. I honestly, can’t remember half the thing that have happened in my life the past two years. Moving back home from uni, then working in a Pre-School… Then lockdown school closures, getting my contract paused with no pay and back to work again for another year. I can honestly say this has been the most intense 2 years of my life. Looking back, I worked so hard and yes my mental health took a nose-dive, multiple times but I made it through.
I worked so that frontline medical staff could have their children taken care of in a supportive and nurturing environment while they risked their lives everyday and for that I will always be proud of myself for. I’m eternally grateful that my family is safe and I have had my first vaccine and finally feel like I can enjoy my job, rather than be so stressed out that I was going to be the one bringing Covid into my house and everyone I love would get the virus and die.
It’s crazy how we have all had to be normalised to living with the reality that life can end at any moment for anyone and still be working from home, or out as frontline staff. Capitalism really doesn’t allow us a to just be and just feel we do… do…do in order to survive and it sucks. Now things are opening up in the U.K. I hope we can remind ourselves to allow ourselves to be mindful and welcome all feelings with open arms and and be kind to ourselves… we are here to live another day on earth.
