I found a keen-witted, relevant story, dealing with isolation and wanted to share this with you.
Imagine a learned, wise teacher responding to his disciple, who asks:
Dedicate yourself to do patchwork, embroider your pants, sew the frayed edges of your dresses well, restore a piece of furniture, repair everything worth repairing. The rest, throw away. Do this with gratitude and with the awareness, that its cycle has ended.
This is where the narrative ends. I think the master wasn’t quite finished with his advice. Nevertheless, he has a point:
Don’t give in to those fears and inner dragons during these times. Give those scary thoughts a good, old heave-ho and stay productive in whichever way you can to keep your spirits up.
Isolation can be a very good excuse to finally get the house tidied up ;-)
Not just talk - here's what I did!
Since the lock-down I have taken my own advice to heart and done some tasks around my house - which made my wife very happy :-)
Now this weekend, I am tackling the deck with it’s warped wooden planks and faded color. First time that I will be using a sanding machine! It’s probably more work than I am anticipating at the moment but hey, there is a first time for everything! Painting the deck is the second step. Hopefully it doesn’t rain!
My oldest daughter recently turned 20 and moved out, so we are going to redecorate her former bedroom, painting the walls and all, so my 11 year-old can move into that room and finally have her own space. This will keep us busy for the weekend and probably beyond.
Like in the short story above, staying productive and doing the things we have been putting off is the order-of-the-day. My wife is home-schooling our kids, and we try to keep them involved in everything, too.
