Happy New Month!!
How have you been? It’s been a long first quarter of 2020 for me, but regardless, I am grateful for so much. What have you been up to?
With everything that has been going on, I have had so much time to myself and more hours to think about a lot.
I just wanted to let you in on some of the things that have been on my mind, and you could also share what has been on yours.
I am naturally an introvert. I take pleasure in being in my own company and just doing my own thing, uninterrupted.
It has however gotten to a point where I crave social interaction. And I know when all this is over, I will most likely go back to canceling many invites, but for now, this is what I am craving.
I am on Day 5 today of my ’10 Days Of Thanksgiving’ posts and I must say, every day I wake up with something to be grateful for.
For sure, I can never run out of things because even the air that I breathe is not mine. So in all situations, be grateful.
I have been lucky and grateful to be surrounded by genuine relationships – something I do not take for granted.
With everyone being forced to stay home, it has become harder for people to connect. This has just shown me the importance of genuine relationships – even between family members.
My heart goes out to all those feeling lonely for one reason or another. You are stronger than you think, and you will get out of this even stronger!
This has been so rampant during this period and although many times I like to mind my business and ignore it all, it has gotten to me.
Why do people find pleasure in tearing others down?
It is because of cyberbullying that many, especially in these times, are being sent into depression.
Let’s normalize bringing each other up, rather than tearing them down.
The last thing I have been thinking about is a question really, Is there hope?
With all the uncertainty that exists, is there hope? This question constantly pops up in my head and many times, I shut it down because I am a very optimistic person, and because the word clearly says there is.
I was listening to a sermonette on the story of Job, and how he lost everything – then God restored it all in double measure. So many have lost their jobs, have had to go on unpaid leave, or even take pay cuts. But what I am reminded about is that there is hope. It may not seem like it, but there is hope.
See you next week!
