Oh how the world has changed since I last wrote you all.
It’s been less than 10 days, but in the meantime my company has announced WFH (Work From Home) until 10th April and the Thai government has announced lockdown until 12th April.
Covid-19 is changing the world as we know it. A week ago, I was still hopeful that I’d get to fly to Hanoi to visit my boyfriend mid-April. And the only obstacle standing in the way was my company’s strong recommendation against international personal travel.
A week later, countless international flights are cancelled, including mine. And we’re in lockdown in Bangkok. I did not see this coming.
The good thing about this extraordinary situation is that it has led me to consider my priorities and my plans for this year. And as a result, I’ve taken the first steps toward relocating to be with my boyfriend in Hanoi in July.
We always said “this year” would be the year we move in together, and “hopefully in the summer”. But I’ve decided to make it happen rather than just hope. It is my life after all. My life, my decision, my doing.
And yes, I’m still meditating.
How is Covid-19 impacting you where you are? I hope you and your loved ones are well.
