I’ve lost all motivation to do anything productive at home.

How about going fishing?  I picked up a fishing pole someone threw out during heavy trash day.  It was a fine pole I'm not sure why anyone would want to trash it.

Yeah, being home too often causes one to lose a sense of urgency pertaining to productive works. I take my cousins out going hiking and that seems to lift their spirits.

Hiking is good. I did some bicycling but nowhere to go. We got some take out food and ate it in a park. Boring.

So you were born to feel nice? Do you see the spider, bees, birds, and tree, carrying out their individual tasks according to their nature, completing the universal will. So why aren't you following  your nature?

Do you ecen know who you are?

If your home delivers from webstores are still working and you have some extra money buy a new instrument or a sewing machine and learn a new hobby. It could be anything what takes your attention and time.

Don't you just feel the wind on your face, fresh air and all that? Why you need a place to go?

No biggie

It is okay to feel depressed, just don't sink under its oppression.

Feel it, but do not cast jugement. Do not give it value, do not think that it is bad. It is something we all feel from time to time. Like the feeling of pain. It is normal. If it is normal, then how can it be bad?

the lockdown over here in manila is extended until the end of this month! you think its funny? i hate it. i hate staying at home and its been 2 months. i don't mind going out wearing a face mask. its something that i've gotten used to since lockdown started. its the curvey and limited time to do what u want-is torture for me..we can only go out and do errands from 6am-12noon. the world stops from then on! i have to have a quarantine pass in order for me to get around.

I’m feeling a little better now. Pretty certain the sunlight and warm weather has something to do with it. I haven’t partake in some of the normal activities, ie go to the beach, but more motivated now.

However, for the sake of sanity and the economy, I hope things wii return to normal soon.

You sound so elegant and fragile. But a fragile egos make fragile life. Aslo fragile friendships.

To accept your fate is to be courageous, it is to accept uncertainty and the unknowns. Accept your fate, your destiny, leave your troubles behind.

I find that, no amount of pain, anger, or worry, it never solved anything or make anything better. Whatever happen, will happen.

Amor fati. Love your fate, which is your life.

I built this outdoor countertop for $20.  I got the granite countertop for free when someone threw it away because it was broken.  My friend threw away her sink, so I built it in.  The wood beams are from long wood pallets.  The cinder blocks are probably $20.

I'm growing thai eggplant, lemongrass, herbs, mustard.

Maybe hide the concrete blocks with bamboo siding, paint the wood beam or add a trellis?
