So much has changed for so many of us and in such a short space of time, there are days we’re finding it difficult to keep up with our new normal!
Then just when it feels like it might all be getting to be too much, something catches our attention and somehow seems to ground us again.
We’re not sure about you, but for us, those somethings seem to be the familiar.
When our days feel anything but familiar as we’re isolated from friends, family and community or are missing the work and/or activities that used to fill our days, it’s often the small, recognisable rhythms of life that capture our attention and bring with them a sense of comfort.
It might be the smell of a home cooked meal simmering on the stove, the taste of a long-forgotten home-baked treat, penned words from a book or song we’re well acquainted with, the changing of the seasons that go on regardless of what we’re walking through or the familiar push and pull of needle and thread through fabric, each of them brings with it a sense of comfort as we relish something we’ve always known.
As we continue to walk through this season of uncertainty, we’re now looking for the familiar more than ever as we appreciate the power of comfort in the well-known.
We’d love to hear about what familiar ‘somethings’ are grounding you through this ever-changing season. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
