For a lot of people, the last two years have been rough and yes, I can honestly say I am one of those people. Things have been so different given all the restrictions that we have had to deal with, and now I think we might be starting to establish a new normal. Yes, I am calling it a new normal because I think that is what it is or at least for a while that is what it is going to be.
I am one of those individuals that does have a bit of a silly/sassy side, and it hasn’t been around for a while now, and that has been getting me down. Between restrictions and issues with parents, it has meant that the last two years has been a challenge to say the least. I have kept up trying to make progress on things but the silly/sassy part of me just hasn’t been there, and I know that I have wanted to get it back but just haven’t been able to figure out how to do that.
Today, I think I am starting to see
that sassy part of me come back, or at least that is what I am hoping that I am
seeing. Today we went, and I ordered some new eyeglasses which I needed, but when
I tried one of the pairs on, I felt that bit of a spark that has been
missing start to come back. I know that it isn’t a big change, but at least now
maybe I will start to gain back that part of me that can see the silly things
or even be a silly sometimes. I am also one of those individuals that sometimes
likes to wear a bit of bling and that hasn’t been happening, so possibly now that
will start to appear. The glasses don’t have the bling, but perhaps the person
that has been hiding through the last two years is starting to reappear.
I hope that a lot of other people are starting to get back to being the person they were, before all of this happened because I think we need to do the things that we loved doing and bring back the joy that has been missing for a lot of us. I am not sure how much of my silly/sassy side is going to be appearing and how quickly, but at least today I got to see a smile on my husband’s face when he saw that bit of my sassy side start to appear.
Remember that we need to ensure that we do things that make us happy and things that make others smile, so even those little things can make a difference moving forward. My spark might be returning, and I hope it is because that is what puts a smile on my face.
