Everyone has COVID-19 fatigue .... everyone is wishing that life will get back to "normal" ... NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
Unfortunately, humans have got an instinctual scarcity mindset which is either discouraged or enforced during our childhood. You can also call this a negative bias and it all boils down to SURVIVAL. The one example that comes to mind is when everyone started standing in queues to buy toilet paper! We all seemed to be stocking up for doomsday and of course, because we are social beings ... we have the need to belong and follow the pack.
COVID-19 is really a catalyst that has brought unwanted change and caused us to re-evaluate the way we live and what is important to us. We were taking things for granted, living in an instant gratification culture, ignoring the desperate state our environment and absorbed in our social media. We were in a comfort zone ... we wished for better and knew what we needed to do to get there, but alas, it would just take too much effort.
Most of us have been FORCED out of our comfort zone and we are grieving for normality. At first we were in denial, then we got angry with all and sundry, then we said okay, if we wear masks, self-isolate, etc - it will go away! Now we are back at angry and some of us have moved into depression (suicide rates have increased). I don't think we as global citizens are anywhere close to accepting that things will not go back to normal.
I don't think it's a bad thing ... we cannot erase the last 10 months ... it will definitely be in the history books. I think that it is a time for RENEWAL. In South Africa, we were "fortunate" that our lockdown happened in the winter months ... it was not unbearable to stay in doors as it is natural to feel the need to slow down (animals hibernate), reflect and dream about what we will be doing in the Spring.
Spring has sprung in the Southern Hemisphere and nature is beautiful ... there is new growth everywhere! Nature knows that letting go (e.g. trees losing their leaves in Autumn), allows new growth which means survival.
We have the opportunity of STARTING OVER ... loose the past comforts and look forward to the ABUNDANCE that nature has to offer.
