Ramblings of an isolated PT #2

So here we are, nearing the end of week 3 of "lockdown".

I originally wanted to try to write down some ramblings every week of it, trust me in week 2 the ramblings were there, they were just structure-less and pretty incoherent ๐Ÿ˜‚ so I thought I'd give it a few days and gather a slightly wider perspective on things before tying to make something useful of them.

The first thing I realised was that structure-less and incoherent is actually, contrary to a seemingly new popular belief, absolutely fu@*#ng fine?! ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

This realisation came to me right about the time I was staring at an instagram post telling me that "if I don't come out of this with a new skill, a side hustle, or more knowledge, I lacked discipline"

I've got a couple of thoughts on this...as I'm sure everyone else has...and this particular ramble is inspired by a nice article that was posted by one of my clients, essentially picking apart the same meme for various reasons.

Firstly, let's start with some jumped up little insta-tw@t having the cheek to start his/her meme with "if you don't..." in the first place!

I think we can safely assume on this one that the person sat there creating memes is of a certain age, and has therefore probably not lived through many worldwide pandemics, and is therefore unlikely to be in a position to tell people how they should or should not be dealing with such an unprecedented situation. Likewise for the people reading said "advice" and thinking

"YES! MY FLOCK OF LOST AND CONFUSED INSTAFOLLOWERS MUST SEE THIS BEFORE THEY CEASE TO EXIST ANY LONGER". ๐Ÿ˜’

Guess what dickhead, we're actually doing alright.

Secondly, as I mentioned, it is more than enough to "just" be dealing with everything going on right now! You absolutely DO NOT need to be thriving in this newly forced environment. At least not yet anyway.
