Gratitud en tiempos desafiantes. Qué es para ti y cómo lo haces?

Gratitud en tiempos desafiantes. Qué es para ti y cómo lo haces?.

“CHALLENGE” By Yannis Lobaina. Toronto, ON. 01 Marzo 2020.

Desde que se inició este período de incertidumbres producida por la pandemia de COVID-19 han sido semanas muy fuertes, llenas de retos, pérdidas y aprendizajes, para TODOS, a nivel mundial.

Desde mi ventana, me quedo largas horas reflexionando sobre, cómo esta pandemia de COVID-19 les ha hecho visualizar a muchos, la importancia de la comunidad y de establecer una verdadera conectividad humana. Como volver a conectar y vibras con las cosas más simples de la vida, que a veces por el estrés de trabajo u otras motivaciones externas no los dejan disfrutar. En estos momentos, difíciles, te das cuenta de la fragilidad del planeta tierra y de tu micro mundo.

Ser agradecida, es algo que desde niña me enseñaron en mi casa. Y desde entonces, cultivo cada día e intento, educar a mi hija con esos mismos valores. Ser agradecida(o) Sólo lo puedes SENTIR con tu alma, tu espíritu y tu corazón sincero.

Yo, HOY, doy a Gracias al UNIVERSO, por mi familia, por nuestro conejo hermoso, por mis pocos amigos(as) que de una forma u otra nos preocupamos y ocupamos de cada uno. A algunas organizaciones de arte en Toronto que nos mantienen informados, activos, y con muchas ganas de apoyarnos. Ellas son: https://neighbourhoodartsnetwork.org/learning-room/covid-19-resources-for-arts-workers.

A la maestra de mi hija. Y a todos los que están salvando vidas a diario, a los que nos protegen y cuidan para que sigamos en casa.

Hay una cita de Vladimir Lenin que ha estado circulando últimamente por internet que dice:

“There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.”

Gratitud en tiempos desafiantes. Qué es para ti y cómo lo haces? Déjame tus comentarios, me encantaría saber más. Cómo siempre, les dejo esta playlist bastante ecléctica que va creciendo en mis días de confinamientos. Cuidense mucho. Abrazos, Bendiciones.
