March 2021 Slice of Life challenge
On Monday after yoga class the teacher said that the studio would be open until further notice. I know it may be controversial but I felt okay going to class as I just walked into the room, set up my personal mat/props and enjoyed class with 4 other people. I checked in online in order to avoid the touch screen, stayed out of the locker room and brought my own mat and props to use during class. I told the teacher that coming to yoga class was the only normal that I had left as all other things have been canceled. Work, everything school related, gymnastics and my gym are all on hiatus. I support these closures and I truly believe they are for all the right and smart reasons. Before I was heading to yoga on Monday I felt uneasy about my decision to go but I did anyhow because I knew it would just be a matter of time before it was shut down too. And as of last night it was. Now I have nothing from my routine left. Nothing. No more normal.
I’m NOT going to shut down. I will still wake up and get myself ready for each day. My family and I will find a new routine. I’ve had my routine uprooted before and I’ve always found another way, another routine. I am tenacious. Let’s do this.
