Covid-19 has become our 'guru' in life, in most aspects of modern living.
From social distancing and stay home, wear masks and keep your mouth shut, wipe and clean, disinfect and dispose, wash and sanitise, take temp and scan QR, vaccinate or die... the list evolves from Day 1 when DORSCON Orange was pasted all over SUNTEC where I was volunteering in a public event last year.
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom: Attending classes and talks, family reunions and church services, therapy and sound meditations; my butt is getting bigger from over sitting and my lower back has never been so compressed (or depressed).
Online Shopping: every month and special dates become the shopping craze - 1/1, 2/2, 3/3, 4/4, 5/5, 6/6, 7/7, 8/8, 9/9, 10/10, 11/11, 12/12 (try typing and see the fingers got stuck pressing the numbers and punctuation marks).
Door Delivery: we get to know logistics whether you like it or not, and the weirdest surprises: I get things on my doorstep that don't belong to me (they're the neighbours')
And where ILUVSOAPS is concerned, NO bazaars at all. So I don't get to meet new folks. There's been a few regulars who are loyal and supportive to our products, and they made my day, and my year. THANK YOU!
I'm thankful I don't lack soaps: I insist on using them to wash hands throughout the day, and the skin remain good and supple. Our Aussie soapmaking family had been swarmed with large orders making liquid soaps and bar soaps since the start of Covid. I'm glad they are able to supply us.
Keep learning this year; the Teacher is here to stay for a while allowing all parties of humans to figure out how they can adapt to living with this non-living bunch of RNAs.
And when you feel stressed, have a warm shower, soap up your body and massage your lymph nodes, rinse and pat dry. You will feel clean and recharged. Hydrate well and relax. Sit quietly and meditate. Center and ground yourself. Life will become easier as you inhale deeply and exhale completely.
All the best to you and your loved ones!
