Quarantine was a little scary for everyone at first. But everyone also saw some positives come out of it. A lot of people even started some good habits, such as making their bed every day, trying new things, reading, working out, and more. I did my best to work on all of these good habits during my time in quarantine.
Something that I often felt others were pushing on me for the majority of my life was "trying new things". Growing up I was a picky eater, stuck in my ways, and I had no interest in any type of risks. Some of my friends would make a huge deal out of something as simple as me trying a new food.
But quarantine made me the one pushing for me to try new things. And while I didn't try anything too new or crazy while trapped inside my home, I told myself that once the world reopened I'd start taking more risks and trying new things. During quarantine my biggest new thing was probably starting a blog, but I've always been a bit of a writer, so it did not feel super new.
One of the first things I did after quarantine was let my cousin tie hair tinsel into my hair; you'd agree that it was a bit of a risk and definitely new if you knew me. My most recent new thing was golfing. I had never been golfing before, but on a whim, I told my father I would participate in a family fundraiser golf event.
I ended up having a lot of fun and not only enjoying the activity, but the atmosphere as well. I was told I have potential and my grandmother and I decided that we would begin frequenting the course together. Hopefully after a few trips, I won't be holding up the other golfers anymore!
So, even though quarantine is over, don't lose that quarantine mindset of doing everything you always wanted to: making your bed more frequently, trying new things, and doing more of what fuels you.
