2020 isn’t cancelled

2020 isn’t cancelled. 🚫 It is here to make us learn and create new reality ⚠️
:::
You know how after meeting some obstacle and overcoming it you come out of the situation stronger and wiser? 💪 How sometimes you need to lose something to appreciate what you’ve had in the first place? 🤔 How in difficult situations you learn who your real friends are? 🤝 That is 2020 to all of us.
:::
This year isn’t cancelled, no no, it might be the most important year yet. Because it will teach us A LOT 😎
It isn’t even half a year yet and we’ve already learned (got to appreciate it even more) what it means to be healthy 🙏 and to have a roof over our heads 🏡. We’ve got to appreciate our families even more ❤. People who have jobs got to see how lucky they are 💰. And, what’s most important, we got to unite as a society of one planet 🤝🌍. Not just about coronavirus and helping each other but also now, during #blacklivesmatter movement 👊🏾
:::
2020 is time to learn and evolve. It is time to set some new rules about hygiene, travelling and equlity 💪
:::
2020 is a beginning of a new, better world. If we do it right this might be beginning of greatest decade yet 🤗

These times will teach us a lot!

Not being able to plan anything now drives me crazy 😫 but those crazy times really can teach us A LOT! 😉
:::
Planning is my strenght 💪 Whenever I have a new dream to fulfill or new project I want to start working on I divide it into parts and plan it out throughout a week/month/year. Thanks to planning I know what step I need to make to be closer to reaching my goal. When I have everything planned I feel calm because I have it all under control, all „in order”. Now it’s all gone.
:::
We were supposed to go to Spain in April, obviously that didn’t happen but I’d still like to go ASAP. The question is when? 🤷🏼‍♀️ When will it be ok to travel? Who knows? Time will tell 🕰.
:::
But it’s not only about the travelling 🌍. Due to economic crisis that we’ll be dealing with right now we don’t know what we stand on financially 📉. Can I still go to Spain? Or should I keep all my savings as bad times might come – lower salary, maybe even losing a job? 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
I wanted to focus on self-development this year. I wanted to do a photography course in the summer 📸 and go back to University in autumn to start doing another degree 👩‍🎓. It all costs though. Should I still do it?
:::
But let’s not panic ⚠️. These times are even more challenging than we all thought they’d be but they will teach us SO MUCH! 🤗
:::
I am sure we are all learning to appreciate what we have now. I might have tough times at work but I am still lucky to still be employed as so many people lost their jobs already 😞
:::
What’s more, we are learning to be more here & now, to focus on present and live one day at a time 🙏 as it is so hard to plan anything 😅. I am learning to stop planning far ahead and focus on present week and on what’s happening now.
:::
These times teach us to be always prepared for surprises, that you are never able to plan EVERYTHING out. They teach us to be patient 😇
:::
I am more than sure that we will come out of the lockdown wiser, stronger and more patient 💪. We just need to hold a bit longer. It will be all better soon! 😊

New normal

What if it is all a test? 🤔
To see whether you got your prorities set right? To see what you’re sad about when having to cancel all plans? To see if you can appreciate what you got? To see if you’re flexible making new plans, rearranging your schedules, building new paths, being creative? 🤔
:::
We can learn so much these days ⚠️ Not only about the world but about ourselves too 😉, about your closes ones whether think about you too these days, about your friends if they really care for you 😘
:::
Have you learned something new about yourself? I, for example, started to notice that I really answer to problems/anxiety with work 💪. I put more and more on myself trying to achieve as much as I can, to prove that I’m good enough, to make myself proud, to feel calm once something is complete. This is they way I cope with stress – I work even more. That’s just me but I’ll work on that 😉😅
:::
This is the time to observe, take notes and draw conclusions 📝 This is the time to learn ⚠️. So that once it’s all over we can build new ‘normal’ with the notes we took. We can use our lessons, our mistakes to set new goals, build new paths ⚠️
:::
And I’m not talking about you and me only. I’m talking about all of us as one Earth-society 🌍. We should all keep some of the actions we do now forever. Starting from taking more care abour our health and appreciating when we’re healthy 🙏, from paying more attention to hygiene and washing our hands as often as we can 👏, from keeping healthy distance from one another in a shop, not standing on somebody’s toes 😅, let’s keep this personal space 😉, to helping one another 🤝, to spreading good deeds, to caring about strangers, not only about ourselves! 🙏
:::
We can build such a beautiful new world out of it with new, better priorities, better standards and better rules. 🤩
:::
A world where we can all appreciate what we got, care about others and are willing to help a stranger. 🙏
:::
This is the time to build a new reality. ⚠️
Who’s with me? 😉 📸 pic taken in Athens in 2015

Coronavirus era

Nature has had enough and said STOP. It revolted and made us all STOP too 🚫
:::
You know how we’ve been all running through life? Never having enough time for our inner peace, for our families, for simple things such as reading or doing puzzles?
Now it’s the time 🕛
:::
Nature made us stop. It made us all stay at home and appreciate what we have 🙏. This is the time to rebuild your relationships, to go into your inner self and work on your mindset, to set hectic life aside and focus on what’s most important – health and family. 🙏
:::
It has been around 2 months that we’re fighting with this damn coronavirus but there already has been an effect on the nature! 🌱
:::
China’s air is clean again as plenty people stayed home and stopped driving their cars!
Water in Venice’s canals is getting clearer and clearer and I hear you can actually see fish swimming there now and even swans returned! 🐟
Sardinia coast got so clean and calm that doplhins came back to the area where people scared them away some time ago! 🐬
:::
We need to be patient and it will all come back to normality soon.
:::
But what is also beautiful about those time is solidarity. The amount of help that we all give each other is amazing ❤ We are all in this together afterall.
:::
Italians singing on balonies made my heart mealt. China coming to Europe to help us all and share what they already learned about this virus made my heart grow ❤
:::
Please let this help and being a community of one not end once the virus goes away. Let’s keep helping each other 🙏
:::
So let’s all keep doing what we’re doing. If you want to help and don’t know how find out if you have any hospitals near you and ask what doctors need, they often need food, towels or simple things as paper and pens. Let’s help them! They are our heroes 💪
:::
You could also ask your elder neighbours or people who are simply scared to enter a supermarket if they need anything and do grocery shopping for them.
:::
But if you can – stay home. That’s the best what you can do now 😉

Love! 😘 📸 pic taken in Italy in 2017

Time

Remember – time is not our friend. It won’t wait for you to be ready and you’ll never know when you’re gonna run out of it ⚠️
:::
Don’t put your dreams on hold, don’t put taking care of your health on hold and most important – don’t put building your relationships on hold 🚫
:::
Sadly we never know when last day of our lives will come. Same with your family and/or friends. Enjoy and cherish them while you can 🙏, believe me, you’ll miss them when they’re gone and it will be too late then.
:::
Give your mom a kiss 😘
Tell your significant other you love him/her 💑
Call your grandma ☎️
Take your friend out for a coffee/drink 🍻
:::
Don’t wait. Stop saying you don’t have time 🤷🏼‍♀️ It’s about those who make time!
:::
Do it all while you still can.
Maybe it is worth setting one day of a week as a day for relations? E.g. Sunday? Just keep it always open and without any other plans but to spend it with your close ones 🤗
:::
It’s not only about the relations though. Don’t pospone taking care of yourself too. Stop saying „I’ll do it one day” . Just do it now! 💪
:::
You can plan your future and time/life will surprise you anyway 🤷🏼‍♀️. You can’t predict everything. You may think that it’s not a good moment now, that you’re not in a good situation but what if next month or next year will be worse (knocking on the wood that it won’t be for any of us! 😘)? And you’ll think then that you could’ve started earlier.
:::
We always regret things we didn’t do, opportunities we didn’t take, people we let go. Try to prevent it. ⚠️ Seize the day, seize the time you got, seize your life 🙏
:::
We got corona virus epidemic around the world. Are you scared? Do you panic? I think we should just live and enjoy the time we got 🙏
Stop waiting, start doing 💪
