Coronavirus Coexistence DAY 56 Thursday, May 7, 2020

Happy Day! Today I started the day a little complicated because yesterday ended a little complicated, but throughout the day things got better and better, thanks to many elements that I will now tell you about. I am very grateful to all those people who, without knowing it, are always there when I need them to offer me some encouraging words that make everything feel right. I love you.

Today was also a luxury to interview Fernando Botella de Think&Action. I mentioned it in the interview, but I still can’t believe that he responded quickly to my request and that he took time out of his very busy schedule to talk to me. It was an honor. Many of you have sent me messages telling me how much you liked it and you don’t know how happy that makes me.

Let’s see, those of you who watch all my interviews know that I dress up for all of them, depending on the theme. Well, today I didn’t know how to dress up and I had the brilliant idea of trying a Chroma. One of my designer friends had already warned me about the damn color schemes and she told me not to even think about using a Chroma in any occasion. However, since I never listen to people and like to do my own thing, I thought, “What could go wrong?” Well nothing and everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. Let´s begin with the fact that the colors for the backdrop need to be either green or blue, I had nothing green, and so I opted for a blue sheet.

And brilliantly (my friend told me this at the end of the interview) I wore a green dress (ERROR). In the video, you can see the disaster. My friend told me: “You look so pretty with your hair done but you look like a pixelated tomato.” At this point in the chronicles, I think you have to be used to the fact that I am a disaster, that I do everything backwards, that everything goes wrong, but I am happy. Hahahahahahaha. Don’t ask me for more and don’t start sending me advice on what I could have done. What’s done is done, take it or leave it.

Ugh… Well, I told you to scold me if I didn’t post a photo of me exercising today. Well here, you have it.

I have to tell you that I went for a long walk around 8:15 p.m. with my neighborfriend (always 2 meters away). She tried to warn me that there were many, many people on the streets. She said that she has been walking all week and that it is incredible how crowded everything is. I thought she was exaggerating a little, but what was my surprise when I saw more people than in the middle of a war. I think that on an August day there are fewer people on the streets. Everyone on bikes, scooters, walking, running, talking, strolling, everything, everywhere. I have called it “Coronavirus Pilgrimage”.

We went to the beach just so I could see it with my own eyes, but we quickly left and took a walk through less crowded streets. We saw more police than ever, we were scared, afraid that they would say something to us. When we saw one, we separated even more from each other and pretended we didn’t know each other. Ha ha ha. My neighborfriend, who is the most fearful of all, said to me, “Nuria, do you have your ID in case they stop us?”, all paranoid, and I answered, I have my cell phone, all my information is there.” Anyway, tomorrow I don’t know if I’ll be able to walk, after 56 days without doing anything, I’ll will let you know.

I took the opportunity to take my typical photos in ballet poses since the views and the night was spectacular. When I got home, little Gremlin scolded me for meeting my neighborfriend and said to me, “You’re stupid, I haven’t left the damn house here for 56 days and you’re with your friends out there like nothing.”

Reflection of the day: I am reminded again that no matter how the day begins, you are the owner of your actions and you can make everything go one way or another. I´m thankful for my friend who encourages me to move my ass and reminds me that I must be strong, lift my head up and give it my all.

“Wake up and trust, everything will always turn out as it should.”
