I can’t believe this year. That’s pretty much what everyone you know has said at one time or another.
Just like you, I baked, watched TV, stopped watching TV, worked out, ate until I couldn’t breathe, then lost weight, worked on “myself”, cried, laughed, yelled, and then gave up on trying to get through this pandemic.
I decided this is life right now- so there is no just getting through. I need to make the best of it for however long this goes on- or maybe this is what it will be like for the future. I don’t know. I know that no one is responsible for me but me. I have overcome a lot in my life- and this will be just another page in my book.
I did get the virus in July- it was bad- but I got through the worst of it. I am still dealing with the after effects that are a real pain in the a**
That’s the worst of it, there are so many other things to be grateful for. And I am.
I have made an effort this year to reach out to more people, be present when I am with my loved ones and to help others more. I am happy to say it’s been life changing. We are all suffering in one way or another so I have found just a simple quick message to someone that I haven’t talked to in a long time has done wonders.
I am social without a doubt, but I wasn’t always like this- in fact I didn’t speak until I was about 7 because I was so shy. It was easy to revert back to not talking this past year but I feel so lost when I am disconnected. So, if I reach out know that I am looking to connect and catch up.
A few other things:
My husband was laid off during the pandemic (right after we both got the virus too). Good news though- he is working for himself now. Just gonna brag for a minute. My husband is amazing at his business. Patient, knowledgeable- puts his customers first. EVERY.TIME. He has been in the industry doing his thing for over 22 years. So, if you are looking for a trustworthy, dependable insurance agent, look no more. He can handle all your insurance needs. From health, to business. You can contact me or visit his website Hassle Free Plans.
I started working with marketing clients that needed small things and then those grew into bigger projects. Which I am so thankful for.
I love marketing- especially Affiliate marketing- which is always my goal. I mean it’s what I do naturally so why not make a little money doing it. You can see the products and programs that I market for HERE.
While I was at my sickest with COVID- my hair started to fall out, I wasn’t shocked because I have always shedded. Then I noticed that I had balding spots and I could see my scalp and that’s when I freaked out. My hair has always been my “thing”. My friend was checking in with me one day and I shared with her what was going on and she said- Girl I got you. She introduced me to these life changing products. I will be posting more on that but seriously- they saved my hair and now they have transformed my skin. I never thought about what I was doing to my scalp, did you know that your face and scalp are the same skin- yeh my mind was blown. So basically, I am taking care of them and reaping the benefits.
The other thing that this whole pandemic has taught me is Gratitude. Well, taught me no- reminded me, YES. I make a conscientious decision every day and night to practice Gratitude, I write it out and practice mindfulness. That is life changing for me. I set boundaries, which I have never really enforced before. Doing that has helped me focus on my goals, or relax and heal and to decide where I want to spend my energy.
Prayer and devotionals have always been a major part of my life. I just added some more bible studies to read up on.
I added more personal growth books and podcasts- which I LOVE.
Learning is my jam- I am always doing it in some form, spending less time doing meaningless tasks and spending it learning new things.
That’s what I am doing up to now. I will post some more on the details but that’s it in a nutshell.
Drop some love and let me know how you are doing in the comments- I do reply!
Stay well- xoxxo
