Rirou woke up that Tuesday March 17th, took the dog out before Luke woke up. The birds were singing, the air was lighter. He finally heard his wife and took social distancing to a whole new level, he started a social media distancing.He finally listened to her, she has been saying for months. So, he started a week off social media.
Rirou knew that he needed to change, taking a break from social media would help.

Rirou likes to walk his dog at night look the stars, because is quite and the stars give leaves Rirou in awe. However, that was the first time in awhile that he felt like that during a day walk. Something about those birds felt like something was about to change.
Rirou stopped to think about it, what he needed to change. After all he already changed so much, it’s like his wife got a new husband. Meaning, Rirou has change so much that family and close friends thinks that he have an ability to reinvent himself over and over again. That reality, is not like that. All this time, Rirou was just trying to feel comfortable in his own skin. Now, Rirou finally looked good naked, he was finally comfortable in his skin, he finally loved himself. But why was he still procrastinating?
That day Rirou did some yoga, and after all the activities were done, and a long meditation session. After that, Rirou sat outside under the moon with pen and paper. When he realized it was 1 am and he had written more in one day than in the entire year. And that felt good…
