Finding Myself During the Pandemic 

The pandemic has been a learning experience for many of us. As we have had plenty of time to reflect during the quarantine experience, I have taken the time to self reflect regarding myself and my future. This unprecedented time has been very useful in regards to self care measures, and allowing time for myself to figure out who I truly am, and who I want to be.

At the beginning of the quarantine period, I spent much needed time on my own self care rituals, as I am an individual who suffers from anxiety. I am a person who is consistently busy, and someone who always has something going on in my life, so this was a great period of time that I could truly reflect on myself as a person, and what goals I want to achieve in the future.

During this period, I learned that I needed to take action regarding my goals and dreams, or else I will never accomplish them. I was able to take the time to manage my anxiety, and learned new, valuable techniques to cope with my own situations.
