Easter Sunday just happened to be Day 20 for us self-isolating in the Isle of Man, but for many around the globe, it has been much longer.
How strange it seems; roads sounding eerily quiet as though the TT is about to start, yet it isn’t and it won’t.
For us in the Sutton household, Easter Sunday was a day of reflection, as it should be, and not of work. Although, there is in reality always some work; workout; upper body day in our little home-gym (a room with a bench and some weights), making brunch and later Easter Sunday chicken dinner.
Being reflective, here are two questions I asked myself, and I’d encourage you to ask yourself the same:
1 – What have you discovered you really value?
2 – What will you do differently when *this* is all over?
I’d be interested to hear your answers.
If you’re interested, here are mine.
1 – Quality time with my husband and son, to walk, or workout with either one of them.
Finding peace, and the time to think, to pray, to create; whether that is writing, playing music, planting seeds, and doing other tasks in our lovely garden.
But still finding my own quiet space to plan and consider how I can make a difference, and help others to find their path and purpose.
I am content with less ‘stuff’, yet deliriously happy finding a coriander plant in M&S!
2 – And whilst it’s definitely too soon to over-think an end to Covid19 just yet, what will I do differently when all ‘this’ is over?
Stop using “I’m busy” (head in iPhone, iPad, PC, etc.) as an excuse not to prioritise time better, to achieve no.1, and use any influence I have to make the world a better place for future generations.
I will make sure I remember to be thankful and grateful for how lucky I am.
Finally, I’m excited to see how effective we can all be in the world when we all concentrate on ONE THING. Can you imagine the possibilities?
Right, I’m off into the garden to join my boys without any device, and the sun has finally come out!
Happy Easter one and all. Xxx
