Do I believe in the Great Reset? I do not know about the “great” in that question but, I do believe in RESET.
When I look back at my life, I see that I have been resetting my life every so often that I never even noticed that I was resetting my life. Relocations, new schools, new friends, new relationships, new jobs, promotions, again relocations, marriage, parenthood, illnesses and recovery, death and coming to grips with separations, and so on and so forth.
Then came retirement and its own resets. I had just got used to that and settled down to a sedate and contented lifestyle when Covid hit the world and while everyone had to adjust, the only difference that it made to me was to curtail my regular meetings with my friends once a month and a reunion twice a year. I could not go to my barber and pedicurist and had to make do with long hair and toe nails till the latter got trimmed by my very considerate son. For a while my daily quota of newspapers stopped and I was lost but made do with books and online news.
All those have now been pushed back and life is more or less back to normal except that I still hesitate to go out as I am vulnerable due to my preexisting conditions.
When and if life returns to the pre Covid ways, I will have to do very little to reset.
“Sleep is our recharge function and our reset button…and we all need a reset button sometimes.”
I sleep soundly twice every 24 hours and that natural reset keeps me going.
