How do you feel today?
I feel tired, anxious, weird, afraid and lonely
Fair enough…You’re experiencing a new situation

But be reasonable
Concentrate on good things

You’re alive and healthy
You have a roof above your head
You may dance in the kitchen if you want to
You have food
You have water to drink and also to take a shower
You have lot’s of toilet paper!
You have internet connection, a smartphone, a PC and a television
You have books, maybe some of them you don’t even knew they were there
You have friends and family
You have time

So, how do you feel today?
Grateful!

You work at hospitals, schools
Supermarkets, kindergartens
You are brave and fearless
And you take care of others

You are a doctor, a nurse, a policeman
A therapist, an attendant, a bus driver
A teacher, a fireman, a physician

Your body is sore and your bones are weak
Missing the ones you love the most
Due to endless days and sleepless nights
You work almost seven days a week

Your effort is huge, whilst resting is so rare
We feel safe and we are blessed
For having you always there

Thank you!

Keep trying

Are you afraid?
I’m scared.

Will you help me?
You may count on me.

Are you ready?
Let’s do it!

But what if I fail?
We’ll try again and again.

Just remember
Giving up is not an option.

Strolling around

I miss traveling
I miss taking the plane, the train or even the subway
I miss my family and friends around the world
I miss my freedom
My wings have not been cut off yet
So I might be strolling around more often.
