This whole situation has me thinking about all the ways in which we were living, the habits our family developed and the corners we’ve cut for so long… always thinking, “I should…” or “I’ll fix this later” or “maybe next time.” We’ve been forced to change those habits and I don’t ever want to go back to that kind of complacency again. Each day it seems there’s an action we’re forced to take that we should have been doing all along… each drop of milk is literally precious, eggs are a luxury and don’t even get me started on the TP situation over here… things I knew were right but just didn’t do out of convenience or because I didn’t have “enough time,” always thinking one day things would slow down enough so I could live the way I wanted to. I don’t want to go back to that after this is all over and we’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching over here as to how to keep up the pace but not cut precious corners. I don’t have the answer but I thought it might be cool if we all shared the things we’re observing and waking up to- that little bit of silver lining and understanding that I hope we as humans keep with us for the rest of our lives. I’ll be posting “things we should have been doing all along” & feel free to join in and share with #nevertoolatetochange on Instagram … First up is, we should have been doing cloth napkins at almost every meal… we knew it but we didn’t because the paper towels were just so much “easier.” I want to try to treat paper towels like a precious resource forever.
