During this coronavirus, I have had time to think about things and life. I see what’s important to me and what’s not. What I can let go of and what I want to keep. No matter what you do you will have to let things go in your life. You have to clean out your heart, closet, kitchen, etc and let some things go. It’s important for growth and learning. Just because you keep things don’t make them valuable or of much use. It’s time to get rid of stuff and let things go.
I’m realizing that I’m holding on to things that need to come to an end. Some relationships have run there course, and instead of becoming better, I ended up worse. Looking back not quite sure why I have stayed around for people. I always end up getting hurt in the end. Some days you feel like okay I’m making progress and other days you feel like why even try. I’m at the way even try anymore stage right now. I’m learning that not everyone is meant to stay in your life forever.
So how are you doing? Have you been taking care of yourself? If not why not? Even though we are in the house we still need to take care of ourselves. Self-care is so important right now because you can’t do a lot. These are the things that I love to do to take care of me. I will go to my room and read, write, take a long bubble bath, etc. These are just a few ways to take care of you. You need to be healthy and in good shape mentally, spiritually and physically. When this is all over you need to be the best version of you. Take this time to do something for you. Find a spot in the house and just have some you time. How are you taking care of yourself?
I know that everyone has thought about what they are going to do once this crisis is over. But here’s a question that I pose to you are you going to be the same or different? Are you going to slack on family time again? Or are you going to make family time a priority? Are you going to be back in buying endless things that you don’t need or are you going to clean out your closet and give things away to charity? I know that when this is over with things in my life are changing and will continue to change because what I felt like was important wasn’t. The time that I have with my family is priceless and I’m going to spend more time with them. No more complaining about what I don’t want to do with them I’m all in now. So my question to you is are you going to stay the same or will you change?
I’ve seen so many people complain about what’s going on in the world. And to be honest, it’s getting on my nerves, so I posed a question. People complain that they don’t get to spend enough time with there kids, spouse, rediscover a dream, etc so what’s the problem now? The problem is even though we are given this time we still complain. Nothing satisfies people anymore! I truly don’t understand. How about sitting down with yourself and work on you for a better you. How about spend more time with your kids and talk with them to see how they are doing and what’s been going on with them. How about thinking about others besides yourself. Yes, we are all in this together but no one wants to hear you complain day after day. It could be worse and you could be sick and not able to have your family visit you. So please people have some compassion and stop complaining. Everything could be taken away from you but it’s not. There are people without a job who are not complaining, there are people who have lost people who are not complaining. How about being more grateful for what and who you have.
I’m blessed to be a wife but what scares me is how to love. I mean I think I know how to love, but not really. I never had anyone to show me what love looked like toward a man. I’m a very affectionate person but as far as my heart goes well how do I know if I’m loving my husband the way he should be loved? I’ve had a lot of past hurts in my life so I have guarded my heart, but how do I know if I have opened up my heart enough to give him what he needs?
I’m trying to understand why the president is so in a hurry to get people back to work. So it’s okay to have people go back to work and knowing that there is a possibility that this virus could spread even more. Now excuse me if I’m wrong but people are more important to me than money. Yes, we need money to survive but people are also important. People are dying and people are recovering, but what happens when we get back to work and it continues to spread? What happens when more people die? So is life not more than money? Or is money more important than people? God help us because we are putting people’s lives at stake. I’m okay with social distancing, I’m okay with people working from home and I’m okay with people who are out of work getting unemployment. What I’m not okay with is the fact that people could possibly be going back to work and spread the virus more and it becomes worse. Maybe I’m reading to much into it, but without people, there won’t be an economy. Why are people’s lives not as important? I truly hope that the president and all of the congress know what they are doing. Good thing I don’t put my faith in them, but in God.
Yesterday was truly amazing, to be honest. I didn’t realize how much fun I had with my husband and daughter. I got to hang out with my baby girl and watch our show on Netflix and just talk. Spending time with her is so important because she’s about to enter into a new season this year. College student. Even though she may not have graduation she’s going to college. Just hanging with her and her wanting to hang with me I love it. And of course the hubby I love spending time with him, even when he gets on my nerves. But yesterday was just so peaceful and we were all laughing and just being silly. I know this is a stressful time for everyone but we all have to make the most of it. Spend one on one time with everyone, I’m truly cherishing this moment because like I said my daughter will be in college soon. The hubby and I are going to be empty nesters so make the most of your time with the people that you love. The little things truly matter most.
Taking the time to reflect on life and what I could have done better. But instead of living in the past how about I start making the changes now right. Well, change is hard sometimes, but change is worth it. I’m learning who is my true friends. I felt like I knew who my true friends were but I feel like people like to fake it. So I’m done with fake friends. Also telling people no, I have a very hard time saying no to people. Well, I need to do better with this in my life. If I don’t want to do it I need to say no instead of doing it and hating it. Also learning to say I’m sorry right then and there and not waiting until I feel like it. Learning to really listen and be more sensitive to other people’s feelings. I can become impatient at times but I need to learn to have patience with people. Also especially in times like this I need to learn how to have time for me. I need to take up new hobbies and learn what I truly love to do. It’s never too late to change things and do things better. I’m trying to do better in my life. I hope you are as well.
In this madness, I have seen that people become bold and rude. The one thing that I dislike the most about this situation is that people are taking lightly there marriages. I have read so many people talking about once this is over they are getting a divorce. But why???? I’m not understanding this. Maybe you had problems before and now this staying at home is just making you have to deal with it more. But one thing I read on someone’s post is that they love the money more than the man. Whoa, that is so disrespectful and why would you post something like this. Well, just a little background on this lady she is a stay at home mom and her husband makes great money. He travels a lot for his job and now that he’s not traveling she doesn’t like him being at home. Why even marry the man, to begin with??????? I don’t understand why people marry just so that they can say they’re married. This makes no sense to me. But in all truthfulness, if you are having problems in your marriage now is the time to talk about what is going on and try to work it out. No matter what the problem it will not get resolved if you don’t talk about it. I wish people would stop making jokes about once this is over then they are over. God didn’t create marriage to be taken lightly. Please be more respectful than this.
