The lockdown and pandemic may have restricted us to the boundaries of our homes but we’re making the best of it by spending quality time with each other. Quarantine has given us an opportunity to spend a lot of time together – something which we didn’t get to do very much because of our careers. We’ve never spent time like this because we’re always on the go! We used to travel so much. During this pandemic, we are able to slow down things and focus more on family time.

We now take pleasure in simple things. Being at home and together with the family is so important and we were missing out on this. Many things are taken for granted but because of the extra time we now have on our hands, we are able to reassess our life to bring about a much needed balance that was earlier missing!

Now that we are spending more time together, we laugh more often and just being around seems to be the most essential. The prolonged time that we are spending together has also made us dwell on certain things. We now have more time to think about each other and also sort of attach meanings to our actions. At present there is no structured time for us to have a conversation and it is not limited to just listening and responding. This is really nice because there is no rush. So a conversation just flows naturally.

We’ve gotten to know stuff about each other that we didn’t know before and this has helped to improve our relationship. There’s renewed understanding and it feels really good! We’ve had more time to talk about our feelings, about life, our careers, goals and other ideas. It’s been quite amazing and we’re trying to appreciate quarantine time as much as possible. Since many people are having a bad time around the world, we’re grateful we are able to be with family and spend as much time as possible with them. We need to take one day at a time and count our blessings. I’m glad to be quarantined with someone I love and amidst family!
