Bee Friendly Isolation
Posted on 30th March 2020 at 13:56
Its been a week since Boris Johnson announced that the UK would offically go into lockdown. The NHS, emergency services and super markets are under immense pressure. So many people are or have been seriously unwell and sadly many have lost their lives to coronavirus. This is a situation we are most certainly feeling the weight and seriousness of.
Never before has the entire world gone into lock down like this and life as we know it has, all of a sudden, come to a hault. These are strange and uncertain times for all of us.
Yet through all of this chaos and panic and toilet rolls selling out world wide, so many beautiful things are also happening. So much good has come from this testing time already. As humans we are collectively learning lots about what is really important and we are all having to grow in that direction.
All of a sudden your wealth is determinded by your health and not your bank balance. Familys are spending more time together. People are going out performing random acts of kindness for those less able/more vulnerable. Nature everywhere is thriving. Pollution is at an all time low. We are taking better care of ourselves, considering what really is impotant, prioritising our elderly, washing our hands more, cleaning things more in general, learning how to make do with what we have around us and really realising who the key workers are. Not just our fantastic NHS staff and emergency services but our bin men, our super market staff, our delivery drivers, etc. These people have perhaps gone unnoticed so far - its hard to see a light in bright times but when everything goes dark, its those bright lights who shine through and keep us all illuminated.
Living as we know it may have stopped but life continues to go on and just because the shops, pubs and restaurants are closed and we aren't allowed into our usual offices right now doesn't mean we have stopped doing anything at all. Infact, now more than ever is a time where we need somthing to do.
One thing that we always have around us is nature. Nature is a beautiful reminder that everything will be ok! Nature is still open and will absolutely not cough on you.
Nature reminds us that if there is no rain then there will be no flowers. Natures teaches us that through weathering storms we get stronger and our roots grow deeper. Nature shows us that nothing is permenant and everything is cyclical. Things won't be this way forever.
All we can do right now is stay present and be patient and with this in mind Oakdale Bees will be running a promotion for the launch of our new Bee Friendly Boxes!
