Time to Practice Cheesiness.
This period had been quite illustrative too. I have always struggled to make quotes like “seize the moment”/“No snowflake falls ever at a wrong place” work for me. These universal truths didn’t always come to the rescue when I needed to appreciate the moment, you know, like when I couldn’t find toilet rolls in supermarkets. I realised I lacked practice applying these quotes, and why I didn’t practice enough was because of the mundaneness of normal everyday moments. Most everyday moments were bland and didn’t ask for much. They were hard to notice, and our attention seemed to struggle to stay with them.
Yet when hand sanitizers costed more than almond milk Arabica coffee lattes, when opening big glass doors without touching the handles required rocket science, days weren’t quite normal anymore.
And they became moments to practice applying cheesy carpe diem quotes.
Okay. This empty rice rack is just another snowflake.
