“The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want.” ~F. Scott Fitzgerald
I’ve been staying close to home for the past week while recovering from a virus — and I’m reminded of how my world started shrinking during the pandemic.
Oddly, after the first few weeks in lockdown, I didn’t feel as caged as I thought I would. I found countless ways to amuse myself around the house, spending the extra time reading, puttering, organizing, and exploring my inner world. At the same time, however, I also lost my sense of adventure. It was too easy to settle in, waiting for groceries to be delivered and hanging out in my pajamas.
While there’s comfort in being a homebody, our worlds can get too small if we’re not careful. ~CL
