During COVID, perhaps the definition of FUN was wearing your jammies and talking to friends on Zoom, maybe even with a cocktail in hand.
That was FUN. And there was really nothing more. We read books and we watched movies and maybe we exercised from home- but, that never rose to the level of “FUN”. That was more like downtime with only a faint glimmer of “Fun” time.
But- that is all that there has been! There haven’t been holidays with family or get-togethers with friends. Your jammies, your Zoom, your book, your movies- and that has been the end of the story.
But get ready- the story is about to take a giant turn! The end is in sight! We are getting inoculated and we can start to see that there is a light at the end of this tunnel.
When I had cancer, I had a long list of things that I could not do. Once I was through that time, I was happier than most any other time in my life. Of course, because I was cancer-free, but the rest of the story is the total joy I experienced to be able to go back to the things that I loved. Little things that otherwise meant nothing- they became special in a way that only deprivation can instill. I loved experiencing the things I got back- focusing on every little detail about those things and really appreciating the lost that was now found.
And that is exactly what we are about to experience. Once again, we are going to put on a pretty outfit and have some place to go. Once again, we are going to dine at a favorite restaurant or go shopping for a holiday gift. Once again, we are going to travel and go to a hotel someplace away from home.
I know we are not there yet- but, it’s coming. It’s coming- and I promise you, it is going to be better than you ever imagined- to experience all of the things that you had once loved, but were lost. You will see it. You will taste it. You will experience it.
You are about to know what it is like to be a cancer patient- who has just been given a clean bill of health.
Look out World!
Happiness is ahead in a way that you have never experienced before.
Keep focusing on that light at the end of the tunnel. It IS getting brighter. And I can’t wait for what comes next!
