Whether you agree or disagree with COVID restrictions, it is a fact that they have been implemented on several sites. And, indirectly, as a result of one of those restrictions, I made a discovery:
“Sometimes you find great places because you were kicked out of another.”
I was there, with all the couches and armchairs already taken, seated on the low-level stairs of a building waiting for my dad. Until the officer asked me to leave the room and wait outside due to COVID occupancy capacity limits.
I agreed, not gladly, but also not madly. I didn´t know where to wait; it was only a parking lot. But I spotted a weird red sculpture. I decided to take a look. After all, I had time.
That was a smart move! It was a place created especially to sit down and relax. It was just the place I needed, and I didn´t know about its existence. It had trees, shadows, fresh air, benches, and a lot of space (and no obligation of wearing a face mask). Thanks, officer!
What is the story´s morale?
How often do we insist on staying in places we truly believe to be good, when wonderful alternatives could be waiting for us outside?
Sometimes we need a push to take the first step. When that happens, it will be up to us to stop complaining and take advantage of the opportunities that have been presented to us.
