To those struggling in small flats. I know the feeling. I was locked up for eleven weeks in an 80sqm space. With my family of four. How did I cope during those weeks. Considering we were not allowed out to walk outside? I didn’t cope it was depressing on all fronts. It was only due to my faith as a Christian and family I got through it.
Why Italy During Covid 19
Italy suffered the most and it is for this reason I chose to leave Andorra after lockdown and head to Italy. I stayed in Venice for a month which was amazing. I then went to Florence which was wonderful too.
Then I chose Fattoria Mansi Bernardini here in Lucca Tuscany.
Nature is powerful during life. It is where we all come from after all, dust. Here in Lucca Tuscany, I have never stayed in such a stunning and therapeutic location. Every day throughout the day the colours of the trees, leaves are gorgeous. The richness of theses gardens is so relaxing.
Each morning I walk and just thank God for where I am during covid 19. I touch, smell and absorb nature it has helped me immensley for sleeping.
My kitchen view of Casa Maria. Each day I love peering out whilst cooking.
I have access to vineyards and wine whenever I choose. Love to explore and see the richness of the greens in Tuscany. I love wearing leather around the estate.
Just 10min drive down the road I have access to Villa Reale. My family and I love sitting in the Estate exploring all of their roses.
I have never been surrounded by roses and all sorts of flowers as much as I am right now.
Whilst asleep I choose to have the petals next to my head. For me, during this unknown world, I need nature to remind me that there is hope. Roses are resilient plants. The natural odour smell is such a healer.
I am a big lover of scented candles, this one is made in Italy. The core smell is amber. If you can create your own rose garden table next to your bedside. Buy a candle you love and do whatever you can to rest your mind.
The Five Senses
I am always surrounded by materialism, deprived myself of nature. During this pandemic like most, I have made every effort to be where I am.
Don’t sit still, fight for your life during covid 19 make the changes and live.
I have starved myself from using my five senses over the years. Due to the radical lifestyle change, my mental health and wellbeing have never been so strong.
When I am strong I am there to guide and inspire others.
My daughter gets anxious during to covid 19. When she is surrounded by nature she is more than fine.
I encourage her to lie in the grass and smell nature. Let go of the digital world and learn what God has created.
God’s Rainbow Promise
This morning, as I walked on the Estate in front of me, was a rainbow. God’s promise to us all that he is in control during this pandemic and that the world will not be destroyed.
Faith is in the hope you can not see.
