dear diary: i feel (a bit) like myself again

10. dear diary i feel like myself again

Coronavirus and this whole pandemic has taken lots of things from us, on so many scales and levels, that I feel like (and I don't think it's only me but I can only speak for myself) I've lost a bit of myself in this crazy situation. My routine and daily schedules changed enormously, I'm spending 95% of time at home; I've lost friendships, work, opportunities, special moments... so many spoiled plans and goals in this year and a half. 

However, there are a few things that have been helping lately and I'm starting to feel (a bit) like myself again. Among those are reading and writing, how I missed those two things! I'm back to my usual pace of reading 2 books per month and I've been writing here a lot more, that feels really good. Another thing that has helped has come in physical terms, I cut and re-touched (re-dyed?) my hair this week and, I don't know, something about taking care of how I look and looking how I want to look makes me feel like things can get better, that I can adjust and find new paths to go on, maybe not with a smile but, with a smirk on my face.

// La pandemia y el coronavirus nos han quitado tantas cosas, en muchos niveles y escalas, que siento como si (y creo que no soy el único pero sólo puedo hablar por mí) he perdido un poco de mí mismo en esta rara situación. Mi rutina y mis horarios de todos los días han cambiado enormemente, estoy pasando el 95% de mi tiempo en casa; he perdido amistades, trabajo, oportunidades, momentos especiales... tantos planes y metas echadas a perder en este año y medio.

Sin embargo, hay algunas cosas que me han estado ayudando últimamente y comienzo a sentirme (un poquito) como yo otra vez. Entre esas, tenemos leer y escribir, ¡cómo extrañaba esas dos actividades! Estoy de regreso a mi ritmo habitual de leer 2 libros al mes y he estado escribiendo aquí mucho más seguido. Otra cosa que ha ayudado vino en términos físicos, me corté y retoqué (¿re-teñí?) mi cabello esta semana y, no sé, algo acerca de cuidar cómo luzco y verme como yo quiero verme me hace sentir que las cosas pueden mejorar, que puedo ajustarme y encontrar nuevos caminos para seguir adelante, quizá no con una sonrisa pero, con una buena expresión en la cara.

Love always,
