It’s scary how fast things can change. In just one month (which for me has been the longest), a lot has happened. In just a week, a lot has changed.
Today (technically a few days back by the time you read this), I got scared. For the longest time since this virus started spreading and found its way into Kenya, I have been keeping a brave face. And yes, encouraging myself in the Lord. I mean, He says that we will go through bad times, but He will be with us and ultimately get us out of it, right? So being the optimist that I am, God’s promises and words have kept me having a brave face. Knowing that He’s got us.
But then, with the rising cases each day, all of it just got to me. I know this is my #YearOfYes, and yes, it still is – but guys, let me just tell you, literally all my ‘yeses’ are dependent on when this thing will end. Today, it got to me….all my fears, all my worries, all my concerns….
However, even in this scary time, there is definitely something to get out of it.
In the past few weeks, there are certain things I have picked up – what self-isolation and this pandemic has shown me.
Here we go:
We need each other
Have you ever imagined a world where you cannot see your friend(s), lover or even travel as much as you want?
I have been watching a Netflix series called The Circle where people don’t see each other but interact on social media and have house parties all by themselves. I feel like I am one of the cast members ?
Coming from someone who likes being alone and easily cancels plans just to be alone, it hasn’t been easy just interacting with guys via text and calls.
Also, those who are dating, how are you doing it? How are you still keeping the flame going? Ebu tell us in the comments section ?
A lot of people depend on their jobs, as something to get them out of boredom, as well as for structure. I’ve heard many people complain about their jobs and how it drives them crazy. Now, with many of us working from home, and others on leave, people have realized that going to the office is not such a bad thing after all.
Without having to go to the office, so many are idle and wondering what to do the whole day.
The good news is, there is so much you can do to help you go through your days. Just click here and see what you can do.
Self-discipline is key
I have been working from home and to be honest, I have had to practice a lot of self-discipline – not only in terms of my working hours but also in terms of how much I eat. Being in the house, there’s a constant feeling to have something in my mouth. I have had to practice restraint and know that when this is all over, I don’t want to be struggling to lose weight.
So when I started working from home, I knew that all the money I was using on my fare, I would be able to save. Well, that has not entirely gone as planned, but, we move.
Have you guys been able to save?
Me-time is important
While working from the office, I looked forward to weekends so that I could just rest and catch up on a few movies. Now that I have a little more time on me, I have realized the importance of taking some time each day just to take care of me – away from the chaos. This is to stay sane.
We are all in this together
The fact that the whole world is going through this pandemic has shown that we are united as the world. There is no war or bad blood. We are all praying for each other and though apart, have a common goal – to end this.
Although I cracked just a tiny bit ?I know it will all be well.
This Too Shall Pass.
