Live Life Today

Today is the day to break out the best dinner plates, glasses, and that toy you have in a box. Take out the items you were saving for a special day. That day is today. Or at least now that we have the COVID19 pandemic. I’ve been cleaning up around the house since the start of shelter-in-place. Mainly to create a work-from-home environment and now my work from home environment is 100 times better than my work environment. I built in little quirks to help me feel like I’m in the office. For example, I put my printer roughly the same number of steps away from my chair as it is in the office. I think I did it to get a little exercise in my day…just like the office.

While cleaning and setting up my space, I started to organize all the little things that I purchased with hopes to use one of these days. I have many toys in boxes; Transformers, Pop figures, and legos. A few other collectibles too. There are a set of knives I only use during Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have many other “special occasion” items hidden from the world to open at some point in my life.

Thanks to COVID19, I have decided to start using all these cool gadgets, tools, toys, and whatever else I have locked up. Using your best items will help turn a dark pandemic day bright. To highlight, I decided to start using one of my Japanese kitchen knives for my daily tasks. This knife is sharp and makes me wonder why I have been working too hard in the past. A little more on this…I switched to all my expensive knives for daily use. Yes, it requires more maintenance but it’s worth it. 

I’m lighting candles from the post-Christmas sales. Yes, it smells like November in the house and it’s wonderful. The smell brightens the day. I’ve seen the news stories of people setting up Christmas lights and blow-up animals in yards. Why? Why not? It puts a smile on faces. 

For some of us, today marks the end of week 9 of shelter-in-place and we’re moving to week 10. Now seems like a good time to:

  1. Use the special plates, cutlery, platters to have fancy dinners at home.
  2. Light the candles that you were saving.
  3. Open up all that soap you were just using for display.
  4. Play with the unopened boxes of toys. Maybe even wrap them like presents and open them.
  5. Take out the art supplies and express yourself.

Yes, there are other things you can do…home projects and repairs. If you do them, why not reward yourself and use those bath salts you were saving?

How has life changed for you? What are you doing to pass the time during COVID?
