MARVEL




       

If anything is true
You have to Marvel in it all


2020 has taught me many this. How to sit still. There are so many things to keep you busy if you really look. The eternal lesson that plans sometimes never work out. And to simply Marvel in life.  On paper one would assume not much has changed this year. I'm still unemployed, in the same House, same Cat, same Mister and so on. I keep a spreadsheet of life events that each year I top up with key moments, travel or firsts. Each year the list grows in comparison to last which helps me to positively reflect. Let's say that this year that list is pretty small. At first, it was a bit of a kick in the balls. 2020 was going to be a renaissance where I started afresh, and in ways, I have undergone some changes whilst other plans like travel or employment has kind fell by the wayside. If you would have told me that in 2020 I there would be a global pandemic and I would be living in an extended sense of floating, I would have laughed. Though rather taking this as a negative and neither an uber positive I've played with what I have in front of me. 

I took the time to unwind. Not just a weekend but months of unwinding. Ticking off those things that you never get time to do or put heavy importance on because 'life just gets busy'. I caught up on a lot of sleep, regularly exercised, ate great wholesome foods and took time to destress. The phrase 'your body is a temple' rings true, and I've been trying to treat it which much more respect and love. I carved out proper time for family and friends even if it was over the phone. The cat and I are inseparable, she's basically a dog. So for all of the things that could have been, I have to marvel in what I have and cultivate. That even in a global pandemic, all things which are important rise to the forefront. And the desire for the trivial or reputation seems like foreign concepts. So throughout it all, even in those boring times, you've just got to Marvel in what it is. Looking not further than what's in front of you.
