It's 4:53 in the AM right now and no I didn't wake up early. I just never slept, it's easier that way. Isn't it? Let me know in the comments below I would love to see if you think the same or not. Though these daily entries are more about making you look on the brighter side but sometimes it's okay to take a look at the other side too because maybe it will help you to stay grateful in the long run. Last night, at 11:00 or 11:30 I woke up to the call of delivery person, who was at my doorstep for delivering the groceries I had ordered. The moment, I had to tell him to leave the stuff on the porch and wear disposable gloves in my hands to pick that stuff up and bring it to my table only to disinfect it; that's when I felt, it's not the same and maybe n0t everything is going to fall back to the way it was for the coming days. But, that's okay because this is keeping me safe. This is making me realise that I was lucky enough to order the groceries from the comfort of my home and had things like gloves and disinfectant spray to keep me safe. So, if you are reading this on your phone or laptop or whatever, I'm hoping that you are in the best place possible and you are doing okay and that's what you should be thanking god or universe or whatever you believe in right now. It's dark outside right now because the sun will rise somewhere around 5:45 and before the quarantine happened I used to call this the second most peaceful time after 1-4 AM because in the morning everyone used to be in rush to get somewhere but now it's peaceful the whole time. Maybe this is the time which is making us see what actually matters and it's not the your crush who used to walk past you in the corridors of your high school, university or office. It's the people who are with you right now to support you and love you. People who are making this easier for you. It's not burgers you ate sitting in restaurants but the homemade food which looked bland and boring. (well, if you or someone who is in charge of cooking at your home doesn't know how to cook then good bless you.) It's not the romantic dates you craved in fancy places but only the love and attention of your partner to your mental and emotional needs.
So, once this is over go out and run with the winds which sweep people off their feet but don't forget to remember and take hold of what actually matters.
Signing out with the noise of empty packets of chips which my partner is finally willing to pick up from the floor and throw in the trash can.
