As we try to embrace our new normal, it got me thinking about the future where this pandemic will be just a distant memory. The time where everything will be back to normal. But I know, deep in my heart, that nothing will ever be the same again. This pandemic has impacted everyone on a much deeper level than we all knew it would. It made us slow down, it brought us closer to our families. It made us appreciate all the things we took for granted. Like going freely to the store any time you wanted, sitting in cafes without worries that you will get sick. Driving kids to school, going to a birthday party. We never appreciate it until they took it from us. I still remember watching footage they took of our once busy city that is now completely empty. It’s like mother nature made us all go to time out to think about a thing we’ve done. My once busy city looked like something from futuristic movies that showed a world without people. It was unreal watching all those empty streets, and bridges. I still remember it vividly.
This whole year that started like any other, looks like a bad dream that can’t weak up from. But I know that this too shall pass, I already survived thinks that I never knew I would, and it only made me stronger. So I tell this to my self, this too shall pass, it can’t last forever. And I know that everything may appear the same as before, but nothing will ever be the same again.
