Getting Out of this Funk
Hello dear readers,
I hope all is well with you and that you and your loved ones are safe in this terrible situation that we are in. I honestly pray that each and every one of you are healthy and out of harm's way.
My husband and I are doing our best to be safe by staying at home. When we do go out for essentials, we make sure to sanitize everything we touch or bring back to our home. It definitely changed our daily life routine. We are both working from home, we're finding different ways to entertain ourselves behind walls (we do miss hiking so much!), and we make sure to give each other space for personal time. We're mostly trying to stay positive and stay sane.
While my husband is busy working, I try to fill my days with old hobbies of mine, such as reading and dancing. My district is currently on Spring break, so I am trying to take advantage of the "extra" time I have to myself before I get hands-deep in trying to teach online. I am still trying to wrap my brain on how to support my RSP students through an online format and I am trying not to freak out about the legal things with their IEP's.
Anywho, I am trying to get out of my funk. Though I have some time, I am having difficulty getting out of my reading and dancing funk. I feel like I lost my passion for both things: I can't focus when I read and I can't find the motivation to dance. *SIGH* But... I still enjoy listening to book discussions, learning about new books or anything book related, finding Little Free Libraries during my walks, listening to Arabic music, watching videos of friends and other dancers belly dancing, looking through costumes, and revisiting old pictures of events I've performed in. But why can't I do any of it anymore? Why can't I read more than 3 pages in a day or just stand up and shimmy to music? I guess I have a lot of soul searching to do right now.
Enough about that. I am setting up mini goals to get me back into the swing of things. So...perhaps you'll hear more from me? :)
In the meantime, please take care and stay home!
