I have no words tonight.
I cried when the PM gave his address because I had this thought:
"When will I share happy moments with my friends again?"
I can handle not having my business and not having an income, but I now really miss my friends. All of you.
I know that this moment will pass and when we all reconnect it will be the moment of wondrous joy.
A moment when we laugh, and dance, and share a meal.
This moment in our lives is definitely proving to me, that the material things we thought needed, are less and less what we actually crave.
We need the basics.
Friends, family, food and love..... and a G&T (cos I'm assuming by the time this blows over, I'll back in action ready to place my order, and I can tell you who's table i'll be at!)
Earlier today, I giggled with my friend/ex-neighbour at our joint horoscope (Co-Star, I love you) - it said we should always be together, and that we should also design tattoos for each other! 😝
It made me think of how much I miss my ex-neighbour, and even though we speak every day, and she is only a few suburbs away, it still doesn't seem close enough.
When I found out I was pregnant, I realised that I was going to miss her wedding in Europe..... but now she misses her wedding (for the time being) but she will be here when I have my baby..... and it just turns out that when this all blows over, I might just make her wedding!
I don't exactly know why I'm rambling this story tonight, but I think the point is: that FOMO has a lot to do with WHO you're missing, not what you're missing....and the more we are restricted, the more we realise that that implicates the people you like to interact with, more than the places you actually go.
I think I just want everyone to continue to search for the silver linings amongst these greying clouds.
So this is for you, ALL of my friends. While we are apart, I know that we are REALLY still together.
Today my heart is grateful for all of you, as you are my silver linings.
And no mum, I'm not getting a tattoo designed by @miss_anna_z ......the parlours as closed until further notice! 😜
