Thoughts from Dianna...
Much has been written lately about how much our lives have changed in a little over one year. So many families have lost loved ones with little support due to restricted visiting and quarantines. Or loved ones in hospitals or long term care facilities with no visitors. Isolated and disconnected from family. Separation by masks and social distancing. Fear of our loved ones dying with no comforting touch. So many heroes among us, those aides, staff, cooks, medical and emergency providers, and yes – funeral directors too. Now the talk is all about “returning to the new normal”.
Are you looking forward to the return to normal? Eagerly awaiting enjoying former activities? Or like so many, are you finding it difficult to return to something resembling a 'normal life" ? Some of us retreated to our homes and eventually retreated from relationships and now are hesitant to rediscover life outside our own safe zone.
The “safety” of those retreats can be unhealthy too, isolation is proven to be a hazard to our health. Maybe take slow steps, find your first comfort zone and then the next until you discover the fresh air and joy as we re-establish our connections and feel those hugs and sing those songs of praise!
