Living life with a chronic illness is definitely not easy. But I do my best to push through all the barriers this illness puts in front of me! In my heart and mind, I believe maintaining a positive outlook on all situations in life will carry us through to much better times! I hope you find the information that I provide both helpful and inspirational!
Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope you are having a great week and you are continuing to stay safe! Yesterday was a busy day at work for me, but I prefer it to be busy because it makes the day go much faster. I find when I do not have anything to do, the day drags by and it seems like the clock stopped moving or sometimes backward. How do you prefer your day at work to be, slow or busy? I am curious because I know my husband prefers his time at work to be slow.
Now that we have one day over in our week, I have to believe or at least hope the rest of the week is going to be great! Tomorrow, the new president will be inaugurated and even though some people are unhappy about this, I think a few set of eyes on the problems in the United States might be a good thing! The United States, like every other country has faced some serious hard times. Personally, I think there has been too much violence and a massive spread of hate, which does not and never will make sense to me. I guess this is the reason I found the quote I am sharing with y’all so incredible and touching! I think what this quote says is exactly what we need a lot more of. What do you think?
What do y’all honestly think about the issues you see on the TV that are going on in the United States? The roll-out of the COVID vaccine has not gone the way we all wished it did. I looked it up last night when I would be able to get the vaccine and at this point, it almost looks like people in prison will get it long before I do. I do under that prisoners’ are all in close quarters everyday and therefore could spread the virus much more quickly, but why are it law abiding citizens forced being I to wait and put in grave danger? I often wonder what happened to common sense!
Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great day, and please stay safe. I know I say it multiple times in each post, but this virus scares me and I want to encourage everyone to do everything in their means, to safe! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
We have all been going through the same struggles and fears since the beginning of 2020. We have probably all been staying home and avoiding any contact with others outside of our home because of COVID-19. Is it just me or does it feel like we are all on house arrest? I sometimes think that actual house arrest offers more freedom than we have seen over the last several LONG months. Truthfully, it has been a lot more than just several months and more like a year! There is a chance I am wrong, but I think if things were handled differently at the beginning of the pandemic, we would not still be experiencing the hardships and isolation we are today. I am pretty sure I have said this a million times before, but the Trump administration this took place under failed miserably.
I think y’all already know that I work from home as well, so I am literally always at home. I miss the days when my husband and I could go out to dinner or even to the mall to look around. This sounds awful, but I honestly cannot remember the last time we were able to go out for a nice dinner. Not that this was something we did often, but at least we were able to for special occasions. I know my husband loves a good steak every now and then, which I do not care for and I do not know how to even cook steak. Of course, my husband has never been much of a cook, and truthfully I do not think he has ever cook anything. I remember before we started living together, he was trying to make hot dogs and had no clue how to. I thought it was cute and a little silly, so I walked him through how to make a hot dog.
Of all things, I never in a million years thought I would miss going grocery shopping because I always dreaded this task. Since the pandemic began, I have been having groceries delivered. I am thankful for the amazing people that work with this service, but it makes me feel like I am being lazy and useless. This is an awful feeling but considering many people in the city I live in refuse to wear a mask or even social distance, and the fact I have a weak immune system, I cannot take any chances. I do not want to get COVID-19 and risk being hospitalized, and possibly losing my life. I would love to see my late grandfather again, but not right now.
Over the past several months, I have been keeping track of the new COVID cases in the city I live in. To put it mildly, the numbers are terrifying, but the way people behave is insane! I also know there are many people that still think this virus is not that serious or even just a joke. The problem with this way of thinking is, people lie, but numbers do not lie. When we all can see the number of new cases on a steady rise, logically this would show the when the way people are behaving is NOT working you would think it might be better to try something different, right? This would mean, for anyone that is NOT wearing a mask when they leave their homes to start wearing a mask. Or for anyone that is NOT practicing social distancing, to start keeping space between themselves and others. Months ago, the experts advised 6 feet was a good distance to keep, but now they have increased the space to 10 feet. Of course, masks cost money and are difficult to find, but social distancing is free and easy to do. Even before the pandemic, I never appreciated people getting too close to me because I value my personal space!
Anyone that has known me for any length of time, knows that for the most part, I like people. I have always been great at socializing with people of all kinds. I guess the sad truth is, with everything that I have seen on the news and witnessed, I have become overly angry and a little hostile, which are characteristics that I am NOT proud of and are very unlike me. Unfortunately, my patience and tolerance for ignorance have diminished greatly because of COVID, the increased levels of selfishness, heightened number of lies we are being told daily, and then the lack of questioning these people telling the lies, and even worse is the lack of accountability there is in the entire world. When I mess up, I own up to my mistakes and deal with the repercussions of these mistakes because that is what good human beings are supposed to do. I do not think I will ever understand why those that did NOT do what was RIGHT at the beginning of the pandemic are not punished for their wrongdoings, or at least feel awful and apologize for what they did wrong. I already know that some of you might disagree with me, but I strongly believe that the almost 400,000 deaths of American’s are Donald Trump’s fault. The failed leadership, lack of empathy, and sympathy by this person are by far the worst I have ever witnessed. The bottom line is, COVID-19 is not political, it is a matter of life and death!
Of course, next week a new president will be inaugurated into office. Joe Biden was our vice president for 8 years and I hope he will do right by not only the American people but people around the world. Biden is not a perfect man and he will make mistakes, but I cannot imagine he will screw up anywhere near as much as Trump has. I think Biden and Harris have plans to help heal the United States from COVID -19 and hopefully, this means a better plan for delivering the vaccine to all of us who need the vaccine. I do not think that Trump had any plans because he does not care about the lives of people and only cares about his #1, himself. I am not going to say the Biden/Harris team will not screw up more than the Trump/Pence team because I have said something like this before and was VERY wrong! At this point, all we can all do is hope for better, brighter, and safer times in our future because what is life without hope?
I want to thank you for taking the time to read this post and even though you might disagree, I would love to read your comments. I can promise you, even if we disagree on everything or agree, I will respect your views because that is just my nature. I hope you are having a nice and safe weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
Happy Tuesday y’all! How has your week been so far? I hope you are having a good week and you are able to stay safe, and calm! There are so many awful things that we are still seeing in the country, but we must try the best we can to distance ourselves from the negativity in the world and continue to be good individuals. If you are anything like me, you will be heartbroken because we have a heart and care about the lives of other human-beings.
Let us get out of this negative thinking and stay optimistic. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you just a little peace. I am not the best at avoiding stress because I tend to stress about everything, but I am going to start trying harder to practice peace over stress! I can speak from personal experience that stress does not do anything positive for our mental well being. I have found that stress causes me many more health issues that I do not need and it is not worth it, especially with COVID and I do not want to go to the doctor’s office.
How are things going where you live with COVID-19? I will tell you that where I live, the numbers are increasing at a steady rate. If I am not mistaken, the lowest number I have seen in the past few weeks is around 450 new cases. I guess it still does not make sense to me as to why people will not wear a mask or even social distance, I mean this can save lives. I hate to say this, but people still do not think this virus is serious and will not hit home to them until the virus affects someone they know or love. All I want to ask of y’all is stay safe and listen to the advice the experts have shared.
Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope the quote I have shared provided you with peace and encourages you for the rest of the week. I hope your week is going well and you are staying safe! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
