Social distancing has become a survival skill and as much as TCU prides in living like a family, the family has had to adhere to distancing. 2020 came in like a wrecking ball, had people withdrawing from daily routines and seeking comfort in distance. Are we still able to sit down and chat or we will have to relearn how to, just as we have been learning to wash our hands? As the TCU family we live to tell stories of our experiences during this pandemic of corona virus.
We would have preferred a reality show, but given the current constraints, we shall have a “reality” blog and talk about how different individuals are coping. Let us take the time to enjoy and reflect the moments given to us, whether back home with family and friends or in the comfort of TCU dorms.

“Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
–Winnie the Pooh
I love this quote because it reminds me to find the little things in life that bring joy especially in this crazy time we are living. Sometimes we tend to focus on the busyness of our lives and miss the things and people around us. And at times it is good to take a break from the busyness and chaos of life and find something that will fill your heart with joy, even a little. Perhaps being “stuck” at home can be a time to reflect finding those little joys in life even in the mundane tasks.
I have been enjoying time with my family even though we don’t do anything outstanding. There are a couple of moments that fill my heart with joy from simply eating a meal, watching a tv show and talking together that l treasure daily. More so, enjoying the backyard garden or even just brushing our teeth and laughing at something probably not even that funny! – has me appreciating.
The mundane things in life are a little bit more special when you are surrounded by people you love. Even when it’s hard to find those little joys, they are everywhere when you choose to look. Most of all you can share that joy with someone and maybe it will make their day too!
