Remember the time before Covid-19 when we went about our lives, perhaps routinely, but making time to do the things that we enjoyed most. No doubt the isolation break has given us time to reflect on the past and to think about resuming our normal lives. Will we make changes or will we continue where we left off?
For some, isolation has brought a heightened sense of loneliness. Experts tell us that at times of feeling truly isolated, we feed off happy memories as they help to keep us positive.
I was enjoying a coffee with a friend located at the edge of a park and I noticed an elderly couple joyfully playing with a new little puppy. It was puppy magnetism for me and I learnt that their children had purchased the Spoodle to help them heal from the loss of their dearly beloved Labrador. I no longer recall the lady’s name, but her words have stuck with me.
