When I Did Something Crazy And No-One Noticed

I went out to the park, the night before Whitsun. Alone.

All the way through the stairway where the paranoid neighbour had been busy just an hour earlier, along the block where same neighbour tends to hang out, at times, when he is having a certain phase, and across the street to the park.

It was already getting dark and I usually don’t like to be in the park alone in the dark.

So I did not go in too far, found myself a bench near one of the tall, strong linden trees and sat down. I silently talked to the linden tree, listened to the last song birds of the day and even saw some bats. They also accompanied me out of the park, later, with due distance.

This was the first time in a little over four years that I left the house alone.

As some of you know, I have a difficult situation with a paranoid neighbour which, over the past four years, has made it dangerous for me to even show up in the stairway or stay home alone.

Since mid-March I additionally had not been out at all until the week before Whitsun, not even in company, because I needed to take special care of my weakened immune system in the light of the pandemic.

So, that night I went out in the park alone. And I did so without even having a panic attack or anything.

Is that a reason to be proud of myself, or what?!

Funnily enough, no-one has noticed or bothered to celebrate this success with me. This is just another sign of the isolation that seems to proliferate even worse than any virus. It seems that everyone is so wrapped up in themselves that they cannot see anything else, anymore. Only the projections they put out on others.

It still is a big success for me and I intend to not let it go by unnoticed. I care because it matters to me.

Also, I find it important to share the good stuff, too. Because it happens and it shows that things can get better. For me as well as for everyone else.

What are your latest success-stories? Can you find reasons to gratefully celebrate in the midst of this apocalypse?

Are you ready to shine a bright light on the path of beingness, today?

Much Love,
Steffi
