#MySundaySnapshot – Look For The Light 12/52 (2020)

Welcome to this week’s #MySundaySnapshot post, which is part of a snap-sharing-blog-linky series that you are very welcome to join. Click here for further information and guidelines upon this linky should you wish to take part.

Given that my family and I are currently self-isolating thanks to me having symptoms of mild flu (a high temperature, aches and pains and a tight chest) I haven’t actually been out of the house since Thursday. I have therefore pinched a picture from my good friend J, who regularly posts and shares her scenic pictures which she shoots around our local area.

#MySundaySnapshot - Look For The Light 12/52 (2020)

This picture really sums up my current mood; the thick, dark trees looming overhead, shielding the light from passing through. It’s pretty much how things feel right now without going into any detail.

I’m desperate to detach from these four walls and to get back to helping out with what needs doing, I’d also love to take a little time to sit and to soak up the spring-time scenery. However, the World has gone into lockdown and for good reason.

This really isn’t the time for me to stuck inside as I ought to be supporting and helping my family at present but that sadly isn’t possible, which leaves be wracked with guilt but then I wouldn’t wish to pass any bugs their way as that could make matters even worse.

There’s just too much going on at the moment, it’s so overwhelming that I wouldn’t even know where to begin even if I tried to explain… Let’s just say that I could really do with a bucket of sand to bury my head in, that and a litre or two of wine to drown my sorrows.

It’s going to be a tough year or two… or three, I don’t even want to think about the future at present as it just seems so bleak.

Life is so short, too short. Life can be so incredibly cruel at times and whilst I keep trying to tell myself that there is a reason for all the things that happen along the journey – sometimes things just happen and there is no reason at all. 

Where there is darkness look for the light and where there is light let it soak into your soul and warm you from within.

Thanks for reading my #MySundaySnapshot post, I look forward to catching up and sharing your #MySundaySnapshot pictures either through your own posts, social media shares or comments upon this post.

    So sorry to read this. It sounds like you are going through a tougher time than most. It is going to be a difficult few months, but I hope you see the light at the end of the tunnel soon.

      That tunnel just seems to get longer but I’m holding onto hope that there is light at the end.

    I hope you are feeling better soon and can get out of isolation. Things sound so bad for you at the moment, remember to take good care of yourself x

      I am indeed trying to take care of myself but it is a little tricky at times. Thankfully my husband and my kids are pulling me through what feels like swimming in treacle.

      Things aren’t easy by any measure but I’m holding out hope and that’s the best I can do.
