Soooo 2020 and all things Covid took us closer to a place we’ve always been drawn to – closer to Loch Lomond. A whole new lifestyle (partly thanks to Covid) with plenty of outdoor life and that feeling of “freedom” we were having a very hard time with lately in the flat on a very busy street. It’s so funny how those beautiful high ceilings that I loved so much started coming in on us more and more each day. At the end of the day – they are just walls. Home is where you want it to be and where your family is….
Didn’t think we’d be moving so soon (AGAIN 😫🙈🤪), but it all just unfolded for us at the right time and we’re excited for our new adventure!Family and Friends – you could probably subscribe to an annual subscription for our housewarming cards? 🤣🤷🏻♀️
Wellbeing of my family is the most important thing for me. I am very lucky that my partner and I share the same values when it comes to us as a unit. Our kids, what’s best for them and us is what drives us every day. We are the type of people who just don’t settle for less and aren’t afraid of big changes or decisions. In fact, they excite us.
Covid changed the lives of so many people in various different ways. Lost lives, jobs and lots of unexpected unwanted situations. For some, the virus has been a blessing too. They got to reconnect with themselves, their family, they got to remember the true value of their existence and how some things they deemed as important in the past, are not so important anymore… Some are able to work from home (more efficiently) now, whilst others took a much-needed break from the tiring physical and emotional efforts they were surviving on. I am nobody to judge anyone’s personal situation and say what’s right and wrong. Everyone does what they feel is right to survive during this pandemic. Some wear masks, others don’t. Some people stay home – others cycle all day long. Some are taking a break and waiting to go back to employment and others are rethinking and restructuring their whole life for the better. Because they realised how priceless their health and wellbeing is.
What I’m trying to say is that we all have our own values. What’s important to me may not be to you. At the end of the day it’s how we want to feel every day, right? We all want to feel happy and if we don’t feel 100% I strongly believe that we are in full power to change that. Feelings are our contestant feedback about the actions we are taking and if something’s out of line – we fix it. Be it internal or external. It doesn’t matter. We curate our own lives based on our values.
But what are values? Do they stay the same all the time? Do you have to share them with your spouse? Do you only live by adhering to them? No. They change as you grow as an individual, they change in relationships as the years go by and they definitely change during and after a global pandemic. Our job here was not to wait for something to change for us. We had to be that change.
