I’ve been thinking about changing my name to something different. I will still review books but, I also like to write about random none book-related things. This blog is of course my E-Diary.
How do you guys feel about musingsbyDee? I want to broaden my niche on this blogosphere. I’m pretty excited about it and I am looking forward to sharing more on my blog. I’ve already started by changing the username. In the coming days, I will be doing some more work on my blog. I’m trying to make a smooth transition so bare with me and I hope you’ll stick around.
Have you ever thought about changing your name? What was that like? How did it affect your blog?
I don’t think we truly ever really grasp the phrase “live your life”… It’s 1:31 am just got up because I felt thirsty. I pick up my phone and decided to browse until I feel sleepy again. I go unto Twitter and before I could scroll to the end all I could see were people saying condolences, I can’t believe this , what about his wife and baby. Curiosity got the best of me and I did a quick search to find out that, one of the persons I interacted with on social media drowned today.
Shock, disbelief, and all the emotions you feel when you hear of death has triggered me. Now I’m up in bed thinking that this person I’ve never met is gone and his wife and 2 year old is without a husband and father. This man who would often take time out of his busy schedule to share with his many followers what you needed to know in the creative industry topped off with daily musings of his adorable daughter.
Not often am I triggered by the death of someone I have never met, but I’m left to think about how he often shared that we should live our lives to the fullest and not wait for tomorrow as it’s promised to no one. Whatever it is that you’re (myself included) thinking of doing to make your life worthwhile you should do it. Stop wasting time thinking about what-ifs, go out, and do that damn thing.
You see this man when he was 20 years old had this amazing idea that would change how people would engage in the creative industry, he met upon naysayers but that never stopped him from living his truest potential. He made it big by the age of 25. He’s now 34 years old. So young, still have so much to do and he never wasted any time listening to people who thought his dreams weren’t valid.
You only have one life, one you, so start somewhere do something. What will be your legacy? Don’t let people or your loved ones say “you know he/she wanted to do this but never got to or was too afraid to start”. Let the people we leave behind be comforted by the fact you did the unthinkable, you went after what you believed in and you were able to leave a mark.
Live your life, don’t wait until tomorrow, I know how scary the thought of doing something you’ve always wanted to do is but you have to just start. Do the thing that makes you scared. It’s ok if you fail but don’t stop and allow the negative to hold you back. Get up and brush yourself off and start again.
Lastly, in living your life hug the people that matter. Cherish your loved ones, don’t take for granted the people that matter. Especially in this time where most people are not able to visit, make that call you’ll be happy you did.
If you’ve read to the end of my ramblings, Thank you 😊, I appreciate it. Live your life….
You’re always reading, 😑 annoyed my husband said to me. He’s been nagging me to spend more time with doing anything else other than being tucked away in our bedroom reading books.
It’s been several months since the pandemic. We would be much busier trying to maneuver our respective jobs , raising a toddler and making things work.
It’s not easy, things are not the same or as they used to be. Our lives have been uprooted and so we have to get used to the new norm. We have conflicting schedules, online schooling taking care of a sick parent. Listen, I’m always cooking, juggling being a wife and caregiver but this sh*t is just too much. I thought I was going to lose it. Things got tighter, financially and while we’re still okay I had to cancel most of my subscription boxes, yes I had to make sacrifices we both had.
So, on October 5 I created this blog. I didn’t know what I was doing, still don’t ,but like all things before I’ll figure it out. I started reading books. One good book led to another, and another you get the picture. Book Reviews came and like this post in between ramblings. I haven’t set up a schedule just yet but I’m working off my mood for now.
How has Covid-19 affected your life?
Reading books and posting on my blog has been helping me not to go completely insane.
That’s all for now, I’m currently reading #WIldGame by Andriene Brodeur-
Today was a rather hectic day. I had to bail on an invitation because I had too much handling and just didn’t see how I could maneuver all without neglecting what really mattered.
I’m now sitting in the chair in my bedroom snuggled up with my book and thinking about how as adults we have to make tough decisions so that our lives are not uprooted in the long run. We are given tasks, responsibilities and what ever we decide has a dominoe effect on something else. In all the hustle and bustle remember that you have to think about you. Are you okay? Those are the words my toddler asked me…. Sometimes I wonder what old soul has occupied his body he’s very thoughtful.
It’s no good to do everything else and not be Ok.
Create a balance…. I’m still trying to create it.
Are you Ok?
