Being cut off from everyone was draining, but simple things were able to lift my spirits.

Connected – Morgan Hooker

The past 14 months have been terribly difficult for everyone. But, what I’ve taken away from it is the importance of those you care about. Social interaction isn’t always easy or enjoyable, but spending time with friends and family allows us all to flourish. The absence of social interaction these past months have really taken a toll. Yet, when I get the chance, every once and a while, to see my friends, it makes it much sweeter. The little moments feel special now: laughing together, complaining about a shared distasteful topic or even a small wave and a smile. Although being away from everyone for so long was a challenge, it makes me appreciate what I took for granted before. Now, every time I get a moment with my friends I feel a little more warmth inside than I have in a long time.
