Volunteering – February

February was a month of being sick. I don’t remember when was the last time i was that sick – it was worse than Covid.

I stayed at home for two weeks but despite the flu I had such a great time because my bosy was calling me to stop and finally I had some time to start with the drawing while listening to a podcast.

For a long time I felt good doing nothing where usally I would have a big FOMO (fear of missing out) especially for being in a different country. I learnt to listen to my body and to seperate between what I want and what I need in a moment.

The disease made me think of many times I was trying to force myself to be somewhere (or someone) when all I needed was just to be still and spend some time with myself. Despite the flu it was the most peacful time in my life since I didn’t have any obligations but to take care of me and a lot of free time to focus on something that fulfills me.

After two weeks of staying home I went back to work in center. I fully recovered after one month. I was still low in energy since I didnt move around much. The month of February was a very calm month and it made think of nature that also rests during the winter. Maybe I was delulu but knowing this comfort me.
