As many times in life, things can change drastically without any previous notice. The situation which everybody lived during the COVID-19 outbreak is a clear example. This period gave us the sensation to not be in full control of our lives. On the other hand, I believe that made us appreciate more the little things in life. Personally I have never needed many things in life to be happy.. During the quarantine the thing that I missed more was hiking up through the mountains, and feel the sun that warm my face, making me feel alive.
