Sometimes the only thing you can do is sit still. I often just find myself sitting on a chair under the big almond tree in the back yard. I haven’t been out here in awhile. I created this corner so that whenever I feel lonely, trapped and or uncertain of my next move I’d just sit under the tree and some how a solution would find its way into my thoughts.
Nature does that for me. It soothes and calms my nerves. I’m not one to easily give up but lately I feel that it doesn’t matter what you do something will not be okay for some people. I need to just relax take things as they come, breathe and move on.
I am not perfect, I make tons of mistakes but in making my mistakes I truly see them as experiences. Everyday I am reminded that people are people. That phrase can be interpreted in so many ways. People are people and it doesn’t matter who you are, social status, sex, orientation etc.
Today was hectic, I still managed to get much work done. Thankfully I was alone in the office. Again being alone helps, I can hear my thoughts and I can focus more, they’re limited distractions.
So my almond tree corner in my back yard. I poured a glass of 🍷 and this is what true peace is. Being still and being one with nature. The problems will sort themselves out.
So you guys know that I’ve been free of the Covid-19 virus for two years but caught it a week or so ago.
I must say that outside of the positive test I wouldn’t know that I was actually carrying this virus. I woke up feeling awful, that’s typical when I have bad sinus days. The cough was not even an indicator, with change of climate especially around winter I would have days when I just had a cough.
Thankfully I had reasons to take a Covid-19 test I got tested and was able to quarantine. I did so per the CDCs instructions. At the end of the period I did a home test which was negative. I further did a PCR molecular test and that also showed I was negative.
I am thankful for my family who was able to provide support during this time, running errands and or being their on video calls to keep me company. I am also grateful that I did not experience any major problems while being positive and I lived to tell the tale.
Since everything I’ve been double masking to to be extra careful. It would’ve been nicer to not get the virus after being vaccinated, but sh*t happens.
Almost one year ago I shared with you about my Exposure to Covid-19 . Today I come back after being cautious scared almost of catching this virus because I’ve seen and heard the horror stories with a Covid positive test result.
It took me a good ten minutes to fully register the results after I received the email. My sister was the first person I called to share the results. It seemed the universe was playing an awful joke at the time because she also tested positive at work. So two Covid positive test. This is not something I was looking forward to receiving.
The CDC gave some new guidelines regarding quarantine etc. The site where I tested also provided details in the event I needed medical attention.
The only symptom if any I’ve experienced since tested I’d say is a cough but I have allergies so of course it could have been mistaken as allergies, my allergies are chaotic at this time of the year. I’ve been in quarantine for almost 10 days and outside of the on and off cough I haven’t had any other symptoms thankfully.
I’ve been home most days before this result so to think I’ve been “ careful” wearing my mask washing my hands after being out in public. When im home pretty much no mask is worn. I can’t say how I contracted the virus or from whom. I’m vaccinated which I guess is good , no underlying issues that im aware of.
I figure I will wait until the quarantine is over to retest to find out if the virus is out of my system. I’ve read that the virus can remain in one’s system over 3 months I hope that isn’t the case. I will continue to wear my mask and being extra cautious when I’m around people. I would not want to be the cause of transmission to anyone.
Please continue to be careful out there guys so much is happening and you may just never know. Get tested if you are not well even if you may think it is your allergies.
Have a good rest of the day. I will provide an update on my status when I have one. I am in good spirits , drinking my fluids and trying to stay positive.
It’s the 3rd day of the week, month and year. Welcome to 2022, nothing much has changed and we are still in a pandemic. It’s rather interesting that almost two years in and this pandemic keeps getting worse, we’ve been experiencing different variants people are still not following the protocols and the government is doing what it can to continue to sensitize and get as much people vaccinated.
2022 is just a continuation of the journey. I’m not using a new book, it’s just another chapter a clean page to continue this roller coaster journey called life. I’ve had wins and some losses but in all of it I’ve learned some great lessons. Lessons that I hold very dear to my heart. I’ve lost loved ones along the way that has made me realize that I should continue to cherish the ones I hold dear to my heart.
I have a job, it has its fair share of ups and downs. I am grateful that I still have a job, many persons have lost their jobs and to be able to still have mine is totally awesome. I would love to continue to further my development in my area of expertise to be able to advance in my career in a few years.
Relationships- this is a touchy subject. The word is intentional. Be intentional with your relationships. Do what makes you happy. When in doubt choose YOU . Spend as much time as you can with your loved ones ,time is so important and it goes so fast.
Hobbies- Get one. Find something to occupy your down time. Learn a new skill , language , something. Last year I started gardening, hand lettering and continued blogging.
Goals- those dreams, goals you have in mind write them down. Manifestation works, I’ve done it over and over again. I am a living testament that vision boarding works and working and being intentional about what you want in life works. I’ve learned that in everything we do make it realistic.
Make 2022 your year, we’ve gone through the pandemic we are still going through the pandemic. Celebrate your life, remember to follow the protocols it’s important. Life will be dull without you. We need you around so do so responsibly.
