Chuck,

Hope you are doing well.

I am writing to you from other side of the globe and I just want you to know that your words made me think... Is this what is happening around the world is real „lock down”? People stay at home, usually with their loved ones, can get groceries, go for a walk... In my personal opinion that doesn’t sound as lock down. Yes they have been changes to the life we’re used to have. As a flight attendant being separeted from my family and friends is normal. I’ve learnt I won’t spend every Christmas and birthday the way I want but I would see the world and that was the thing that I wanted to do. I Can’t travel now... and that feels strange but there is so many things to do at home. It’s not like you Can’t have fun at your own place and having all the time in the world to figure out what you want from life. Step by step, day by day accomplish new achievment even If it’s so easy as doing your bed every morning.
I do believe everything in live can be looked at from different perspective. What situation we’re in shows is how fragile and spoiled society is... I truly believe millions of people around the world with give everything to be able to walk or do groceries, or be around their family or play with dog or lay in their own bed and they won’t think about how unfair is life at home...
Last year I had bad injury and wasn’t able to move for about 2 months. This 2 months I was laying down at looking at my ceiling thinking how ungrateful I was for the things I could do and how many people will need to lay down at look at the ceiling for few months, years or maybe life... I’ve cried when I made first step and when I was able to walk up and down the stairs.... That to me felt almost like a lock down as I wasn’t able to do anything but still had friends who visited and could order food I wanted so wasn’t fully but I’ve learnt to appreciate little things that we have in life as the make you happy.
Every day is a miracle the moment you open your eyes. Maybe this experience has happened to let people realize that simple is enough, other person is enough, smile is enough...

In this weird times I am sending you a smile
Martina
