To thine own self be true... introspections from a Covid World

Time to think? As we tentatively emerge, overwhelmed and blinking into the days of our pre-vaccine Covid world, struggling - with various degrees of success - to navigate the various threads of our life, there's no more important time to keep a journal.
Here we can be honest. Brutal honesty, if that's what you need, whether all our narrative strands 
still work for us in this strange new world.
What's important? What can we leave behind? What do we want for our futures and 
what do we cherish from the past? Can we live with contradictions? Forgive ourselves? Think polar opposites about the same issues? Want two mutually exclusive states? 
Or find contentment with an unhappy compromise?
Keep a journal, if only for a short time, to discover that fantastic mix of intelligence, wisdom, emotional spiralling, positive thinking, negative pot holing, bizarre wonderings, 
internal contradictions, strange instincts and demanding impulses - 
that celebratory, glorious mess called human, by your name. Love it all.
