The pandemic has created a shift in my value system. I used to make fun of people that were satisfied by just the little things, thinking that their desires and aspirations were small. But now

I've had a change in character where the only things keeping me in the eye of this storm out of the clouds of stress is the little conversations I have on Zoom, the meals I make for myself, drives at the beach during sunset, the walks around my block while listening to an audiobook.

I always try to refrain from sounding corny but gratitude comes a long way. Gratitude for the fact that I get to have all of this time to work on my well being, through some panic attacks and fits of joyous laughter.
