Day 5: Mimosas and Sunshine (practicing gratitude)

It could be worse. It could be much worse. What if there was no champagne? What then? As we slowly transition into this new reclusive lifestyle, it’s important to be grateful for the little things, like being able to drink mimosas. While some countries are experiencing societal collapse, food shortages, martial law, and the constant risk of death and injury, we’ve had to endure boredom, uncertainty, and a lack of toilet paper. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to trivialize the circumstances. It is scary. Not knowing how long this will last or how bad of an impact it will have on the economy is terrifying. Being laid off is incredibly scary. Worrying about whether or not things will get worse is equally horrifying. But in the meantime, there’s still food in the grocery stores and perfect mimosas to be made.


Saturday was a wonderful day. I got up early and made myself breakfast. I rarely cook breakfast and almost always grab something through a drive thru, but this quarantine has forced me to make some lifestyle changes, one of which being that I cook more. So I made a delicious breakfast of corn beef hash with fried eggs and it was fabulous, and then I basked in the sun for about 30 minutes and sipped mimosas.


After that I joined a friend on a chalk and walk around the neighborhood. The weather was crisp and cool, but the sun was out and spring is right around the corner. Another thing I’m grateful for. Can you imagine doing this crap during the winter? I’ll revisit that idea on another post. And in the meantime, enjoy the little things and try not to panic.
