Coping in a Pandemic

Hey friends,

It’s been a minute. Working from home paired with other demands has me very busy. I decided to check the many notifications that I’ve missed since my last post.

The blog is growing and people are engaging with the posts I’ve made and that is good. Thank you really, it’s much appreciated.

Today wasn’t a good day for me, I was so overwhelmed I locked myself in my room, I guess I cried 😭 for maybe a few hours. Now I don’t know what came over me but I felt so much better after. I was thinking unkind thoughts ,between work home the current pandemic the news. It was just too much.

Check on your strong friends we are not okay. I was a part of a meeting this week where a team member shared how people are not coping in this pandemic our realities have changed we’ve lost loved ones, jobs, the uncertainty of not knowing what will happen next is just too much. When I heard this person speak I didn’t know or think that for a minute I was going through the motions. No one checked on me but a notification from this blog post that I wrote last year prompted me to reflect and refocus my bearings.

I just want you to reach out to someone if you need to talk clear your head. Ask for help, too often we allow pride from giving us that break that is so badly needed.

I’m not at a 100% but I’m still alive.

I hope you are okay, alive and well.

Until next post,

Stay safe

Happy Birthday to the King of Reggae – Bob Marley

Even in death his memories lives on. As a child growing up his music belted from the airwaves, mom and dad loved dancing to his music . One of their favorites, Trench Town Rock – it is true when the music hits you you feel no pain.

Bob thought us to think big, express yourself, read more to elevate your level of thinking, be more than the status quo Redemption Song.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Sometimes it’s best to keep that information to your self. Not everyone whom you call friend means you well.Who the Cap Fits.

He was a man who loved hard. He was a family man who wasn’t afraid to express his feelings I wanna love you.

Could You be Love – How much do you know about this four-letter verb? It’s not spiteful and it doesn’t boast. Stand in your truth , fight for what you believe in.

Know your history. Our history is big and very powerful. Dig deep and wide, talk to the scholars be a true Buffalo Soldier

Whenever you get weary and want to give up press on. The fight is not over, fight the good fight. Three Little Birds

Strength of a woman. You woman , mother, sister, daughter, aunt, grandma and cousin is strong. You embody grace and dignity. You are the rock on which society will stand firm, the glue that holds everything together. They’ll be ungrateful but No Woman No Cry

Black, Blue, Yellow or White we all are One. It doesn’t matter what your race , origin, religion, sexual orientation we all are One. One Love.

He’s not around but his memory lives on. Bob Marley is an icon in my country and loved by so many across the globe. One Love! Nuff Respect! Irie!

I’ve highlighted some of my favorite and also some of his popular songs. Do Enjoy☺.

Happy Birthday Bob Marley.

Until Next Post, Keep Safe.
