What brought me to write this post?
I found today was a long day for me and my family. Nothing specific, big or different than other days has happened, it was just one of those days when I felt less patient, a little bit anxious. Many reasons are crossing my mind at this very moment:
- We have been under voluntary confinement at home for the past 27 days already.
- Everything is new and all our old habits, routines have been impacted in a way.
- We are obligated to be physically distanced from those we love.
That has made me wonder:
- How much similarity this situation could have with my wife and I moving to Canada as immigrants?
- How many times have I experienced all these emotions in the past?
- What could I do to make the best out of tomorrow for me, my family, friends and colleagues?
What if …..
- I focus on the tools we have developed to succeed in our Immigration process?
- I accept that it is OK to feel this way some days? What would be possible then?
- I start fresh tomorrow, looking at the sweet simple things that life offers me? How would I feel then?
My invitation is to truly take it one day at a time
Now that you know a little more about myself, I invite you to take a moment to look around, staying curious, being brave, spreading love and reflect about the following questions:
- What do you do to take life one day at a time?
- How do you accept and let go?
- What do you do to bounce back in life?
Thank you for reading and commenting on my articles. And please remember to stay at home, take a deep breath, try to relax, keep yourself safe, and don’t forget that:
We are incredibly better together, today more than ever!
